Press Release: ASCD Launches Redesigned Inservice Blog and a New YouTube Channel
Alexandria, VA (2/25/2014)—ASCD, a global community dedicated to excellence in learning, teaching, and leading, announces the redesign of the ASCD blog Inservice and a new YouTube channel. Both platforms provide educators with the most up-to-date and free professional development resources necessary to support the success of each child.
Inservice helps educators at every level with exclusive daily educational resources. Much like a school inservice meeting, Inservice stimulates conversation. Posts on Inservice cover the hottest topics in education today and offer insight and information delivered on a daily basis. Additionally, readers receive timely public policy updates, association news, insider details on ASCD’s conferences, and more.
The mobile-responsive redesign of Inservice now features multiple ways for educators to share useful blog posts across their social media platforms with ease. The blog also has a new and improved category structure that enables visitors to search for blog posts relevant to the topics that matter most to them. Videos and blog posts will be accessible through multiple search capabilities on Inservice, which keeps the information that educators care most about at their fingertips.
Alongside the redesign of Inservice, ASCD’s new YouTube channel (www.youtube.com/officialascd) provides new video resources for educators. Through YouTube, ASCD shares videos on a variety of important topics, including the Common Core State Standards, education technology, supporting the whole child, and conference sessions. Educators looking for useful video professional development that takes their busy schedules into account will find subscribing to ASCD’s YouTube channel to be a valuable, efficient, and cost-free addition to their professional development tool kit.
“Providing professional development for 21st century educators takes many forms, and ASCD is eager to meet educators where they are,” said ASCD Executive Director and CEO Gene R. Carter. “We’re thrilled to relaunch our blog and our new YouTube channel to offer free, high-quality, and shareable resources to educators.”
YouTube expands ASCD’s award-winning social media portfolio alongside ASCD’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, and LinkedIn accounts. ASCD’s social media presence connects ASCD with educators and shares unique content that is dedicated to learning, teaching, and leading. ASCD also encourages members and customers to connect with ASCD on the ASCD EDge® online community, which brings educators together through video, audio, photos, blogs, and more.
In 2013, ASCD was named the number one social media–savvy association in education by Association TRENDS magazine.
