Annenberg Learner

Description

Our mission is to advance excellent teaching in American schools through the development and distribution of multimedia resources for teaching and learning. We are a division of the Annenberg Foundation, which funds a wide range of programs in education and other areas.

Annenberg Learner funds and distributes more than 100 multimedia courses and workshops to help teachers keep current on the content they teach. Professional development resources provide teachers with research on the most effective teaching strategies along with their connection to national education content standards, and examples of these principles applied in real classrooms. The video components are paired with extensive Web sites that include online texts, course and workshop guides, and extensive background information to enhance the learning experience. Using these resources, teachers can learn from experts, other teachers, and even students who reveal their unique interpretations of the content.

Teachers also can earn graduate education credit using these resources through Colorado State University for a low tuition fee. We also make the resources available at no cost to individual learners through our Web site, Learner.org. The DVDs and guides can be purchased in hard copy format through Learner.org and 1-800-LEARNER.
