BRIDGING THE GAP

LPB ENHANCED DISTANCE LEARNING EDUCATION PLAN FOR STUDENTS AND EDUCATORS

FOR LOUISIANA SCHOOL DISTRICTS AND EDUCATORS

TEACHER TRAINING

Virtual trainings will be held every week for teachers to learn how to best utilize the LPB/PBS LearningMedia and Discovery Education digital media libraries.

Both digital libraries have distance learning platforms that allow teachers to build subject folders, import class rosters, assign lessons, build project boards, give quizzes and much more.

Teachers can work together to build grade level resources that can be shared. In addition, teachers may:

· Utilize PBS Teacher trainings

· Serve as LPB training liaisons

· Customize lesson plans according to local standards and goals
