KET Tools For K-5 Schools

Jump Start Learning with KET Media Resources and Services

Overview of KET's Services

To followup on our recent contact I wanted to share these resources from our KET PBS Learning Media services plus stand-alone sites that can help make the concepts you are presenting come alive and engage your students in fun and exciting ways. I also wanted to make sure you were aware of the professional development opportunities that KET offers. Take time to explore and enjoy these resources! Remember that probably the biggest change in services is that the PBS LearningMedia site has been completely redesigned and the new site was just launched so check it out!

Remember that I can come to your school and conduct onsite trainings for teachers and students on PBS Learning Media, Media Arts, and media careers related topics.
