Dear Viewers and Listeners:
While children have been enjoying their carefree summer time, the ETV Education Department has been busy working with teachers across the state, offering a series of Technology Resources classes. These hands-on workshops covered ETV’s online educational offerings—Knowitall.org, StreamlineSC, PBS LearningMedia, Teacherline—and other resources available to teachers, including Digital Storytelling, Movie Maker, iMovie, and more. Participants received required State Department of Education recertification credit.
The Education Department also offers presentations and workshops throughout the school year. These can be short planning period presentations, full-day, half-day, or after-school workshops. All are tailored to the educators’ needs at each school. You can find a list of basic free workshops at streamlinesc.org under Classroom Resources. Booking has begun for the 2013–2014 school year.
Among our many wonderful television offerings this month, we’re proud to offer another episode in our Man and Moment series, which highlights the courageous exploits of S.C. WWII veterans. This month’s program is Ted Bell and the Ridge, which follows the 93-year-old army veteran as he travels back to Okinawa, Japan, where he led more than 200 men in a brutal three-day battle on Ishimmi Ridge.
As always, thanks for your valued support, which helps us make these worthwhile projects available.
ETV President & CEO.
