Teaching Tips for Educational Media

PBS KIDS has great educational online games that kids love, but how can teachers effectively integrate them into their classroom curricula to enhance children’s early math and literacy development? Boston University School of Education has developed a series of “Teaching Tips” that show teachers step-by-step how to use educational media to enhance standards-based teaching and learning.
Each set of tips is aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the technology standards established by the International Society of Technology in Education. Each module contains 20-minute lesson plans for between three and five games, and suggests ways to use the games in both whole-class and small-group settings.
