In September 2002, GPB Education and United Learning announced a
partnership that would allow Georgia classroom teachers to access
educational video assets instantly via the Internet. This means
teachers can access educational video clips complete with audio over
the Internet without the use of a television or VCR. GPB Education is
offering this service to Georgia teachers and learners FREE of charge.
As of November 2006, Georgia educators may now find online more than
50,000 video clips from more than 1,000 different programs drawn from
GPB Education's video repository. More programs are being added each
day, so check the website for the latest information!
Teachers may search for video assets by grade, subject area,
keyword or Georgia Performance Standard. The streaming website features
video segments correlated to specific Georgia Performance Standards.
The benefit of segmented video resources is that they allow teachers to
select only those clips that apply directly to the standards they
intend to teach. With video segments, teachers can stream via the
Internet and will be able to target classroom instruction in a way that
would engage your child.
website is password protected and these resources are available
exclusively to Georgia educators. Each school media specialist has been
given a passcode for all school personnel to access the site for the
first time. Once individual users sign in with the school passcode,
they will be prompted to create an individual username and password.
From this point on, the users will use their created username and
password to log in. If your school has not yet received its passcode,
have your media specialist e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the school, county, media specialist's name and e-mail address.
