PBS TeacherLine showcased an expanding line of web-based professional development courses designed to help teachers integrate technology effectively into their instruction. All TeacherLine courses–which encompass topics such as math, reading, science, instructional strategies, instructional technology, and curriculum mapping–now include suggestions for incorporating technology, differentiated instruction, and assessment into daily coursework. In addition to content-area courses, TeacherLine also offers the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) Capstone Certificate Program, a series of research-based online training courses that enable teachers to demonstrate their mastery of ISTE’s National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers, or NETS-T. Aside from simply helping teachers hone their ed-tech skills, the initiative seeks to create a community of tech-savvy educators that participants can return to for advice long after they complete the program.
