Generally Speaking...

Calling all teachers!  There are still two weeks left to enter the 2017 PBS Digital Innovators Program.  Educators (pre-K through high school) are invited to submit a 1-3 minute video showing how you’re using PBS LearningMedia and other digital technology tools in the classroom to enhance your teaching and inspire the love of learning in your students.

A national panel of judges will select one educator from each state.  These PBS Digital Innovators will receive a three-day, all-expense paid trip to participate in the 2017 PBS Digital Innovators Summit and the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Conference.  Applications will be accepted until midnight on February 13.  Learn more at  

While the Digital Innovators Program is for professional educators, I invite anyone interested in enhanced learning to check out PBS LearningMedia, the free media-on-demand service provided by PBS and OPT.  With more than 100,000 videos, images, lesson plans and articles, PBS LearningMedia is a wonderful way to bring textbook concepts to life, helping students form meaningful connections with the material they’re learning.  It includes curriculum-aligned examples and illustrations from award-winning PBS programs such as NOVA, Frontline, and American Experience, as well as expert content contributors like The National Archives and NASA. 

PBS LearningMedia is a great example of how your support of OPT extends far beyond broadcast television...and into classrooms throughout the Ozarks where students are cultivating a passion for learning that will last a lifetime.  Thank you for supporting this service – and all the other services that OPT offers – in our community.
