A New Resource for Teachers: The Education Connection

The Teacher Toolbox has been revamped and given a new name. It is now The Education Connection and debuts this month on the GPB Education site. Media specialists and teachers will find some of their old favorites from Teacher Toolbox coupled with new information to enhance classroom learning.

There are four parts to The Education Connection - Education Resources, Technology in the Classroom, Professional Learning and Literacy across the Curriculum. All of the resources are easy to find and use.

Here are a few of the great things you will find at The Education Connection:

* Educational Resources
Find teacher and parent educational resources and tools for using GPS based interdisciplinary unit builders.

* Technology in the Classroom
Find resources, tools and program information for using technology at home and in the classroom. This includes important satellite information, lesson unit builders for GPB Original Programming, collaborative tools for the classroom and more. You will also have access to many helpful links to edublogs, wikis, podcasts and GPB's Digital Library.

* Professional Learning
At GPB we support Professional Learning initiatives that provide leadership, technical assistance, resources and consultative services to the Georgia education community. Look here to find resources for teachers and parents on literacy and learning.

* Literacy across the Curriculum
Here you will find additional resources focused on reading and writing across the curriculum.
