WVIZ/PBS ideastream Education, in partnership with INFOhio, is offering an online graduate credit opportunity for Ohio’s K-12 educators. 21st Century Tech Skills for the Common Core allows an educator to earn one to four graduate credits by completing up to four online modules grouped from the Learning Commons. Completing the modules will enhance the ability to integrate informational text and project-based assignments with differentiated instruction.
Cost: $130 per module. Graduate credit available.
A polar bear named Snowy helps his best penguin pal, Slick find his family. A little kid named Evan figures out why the neighbor’s cat has a mysterious spot on his nose. Rather than shooing them away, a farmer befriends the local birds and rodents and saves his crop. And a lonely hippo named Liam is new to the zoo and just wants to make a friend. These are just some of the exciting stories submitted to the 2014 PBS Kids Writers Contest at ideastream.
