Teachers, join us as we nurture curiosity and critical thinking with our littles!
This virtual professional learning experience will provide tips on how to responsibly integrate media in the classroom for your early learners. How do you encourage an eagerness to explore in the classroom? A desire to learn? What are the best methods to keep students engaged and learning in the classroom? Designed by educators, this professional learning event was specially designed for PreK-2 teachers. You will be introduced to a number of teaching models and strategies to help your students nurture their natural sense of curiosity as they develop essential critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Led by PBS Digital Innovator All Stars Elisabeth Bostwick and Jared Morgan, this session highlights exciting resources and models that can immediately be implemented in the classroom.
If you are unable to attend the live virtual event, we will send a recording of the event in a follow-up email to all registrants. PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for the one hour virtual professional learning event.

- Jared Morgan
If you walked into Jared’s classroom, he says, you would hear a bustle of noise as students brainstorm, ask questions, and work together in their groups to investigate how the world around them works. You would also see Chromebooks in his students’ hands as they research, write, simulate, and share their discoveries. Jared believes in the power of digital innovation because he has seen his classroom become a more engaged and efficient space as a result of it. “My goal as a science teacher is to create a space where students are encouraged to collaborate, think critically, and solve real-world problems,” he says. “Infusing the classroom with technology is an integral part of achieving that goal.”
