AETN Education Guide 

Are you a teacher, parent, grandparent, or mentor?  Check out AETN’s Education Guide – your quick look at all of our educational resources including training, resources, professional development, guides, online digital media for the classroom, apps and more! AETN’s educational programs and services for teachers and parents leverage the thousands of free resources for all Arkansas children in the classroom, at home and on the go.

FOR PARENTS:

What kind of impact can YOU have as a parent?  Before you send your kids off to kindergarten (and throughout their early education), engaging them at home is a proven way to give your kids a HUGE advantage so they are ready to learn.  As the top provider of content that helps children build reading and math skills, PBS uses media across all platforms to prepare kids for success in school through television programs, online offerings, mobile apps and more. 

Check this out: children who watched “Super Why!” scored 46% higher on standardized tests than those who did not watch the show (“Summative Evaluation of Super Why!” 2008 Univ. of Penn.).

PBS KIDS was named the most educational TV/media brand, the safest destination for children to watch television or visit online, and the top provider of content that helps children build reading and math skills (2012 Harris Poll). 

FOR TEACHERS: 

From free online ADE-approved professional development to our iPad/Mac mobile labs to Common Core and STEM support and teacher guides … trainings ... workshops … more than 20,000 online free digital media materials (and so much more), PBS and its members stations - including AETN - serves as America’s largest classroom. You can depend on AETN for high-quality, Common Core focused support every day. Right at your fingertips!

AETN continues to address poverty in the state with “A Deeper Look: The American Dream in Arkansas” and to survey the national landscape with “Dream On.” Learn more about these projects and a special night of programming after the jump.
