FETC Round Up

Fetc At a show the size and scope of FETC it’s easy to miss a multitude of otherwise impressive ideas and products. All it takes is a second of lost concentration, and the item passes by without your notice. Here’re a few of my favorites from the show.


PBS TeacherLine’s Peer Connection professional development site has added videos and other resources from PD360 and The Video Journal of Education for its professional development courses.

eInstruction showed its Interwrite DualBoard interactive white board that allows the use of two pens at once so that a teacher and student can work through a problem or two students can collaborate.

Nobody thinks about an emergency until it’s too late. PublicSchoolWorks’ EmployeeSafe Suite can help train your staff to be ready in a crisis.

New Dimension Media’s  CCC! Technology Video on Demand adds 12 new software features, including Classroom LIVE!, which can help teachers connect with home-bound students.

AIM Education showed its Learn360 video streaming service for elementary, middle and high schools that now allows teachers to create their own video Web sites, which can incorporate assignments, tests and any of their own instructional documents.

Brian,

Thank you for mentioning the new additions to Peer Connection. We are extremely excited to work with School Improvement Network (PD360) to include their video resources in our new online coaching and mentoring tool. What better way to focus on increasing a teacher leader's effectiveness than to provide them with not only the content to improve their practice and the practice of the teachers they support, but give them visual best practices along the way.

Anyone can have a free 30-day trial of Peer Connection at www.pbsteacherline.org/trypeer.

Best regards,
Donovan Goode
Director of Marketing
PBS TeacherLine
