Press Release: Teachers Network Works With AT&T Foundation to Bring Technology to the Classroom
Teachers Network Works With AT&T Foundation to Bring Technology to the Classroom

Non-profit Education Organization Partners with AT&T Foundation to Offer Online Network of Resources for Educators Around the World

New York, September 27, 2004 – As more teachers look for ways to integrate technology into the classroom, Teachers Network, an education non-profit organization, has launched TeachNet, an updated, online network of resources. Supported by AT&T Foundation, TeachNet’s online program is designed to help teachers integrate web-based lessons into classroom instruction.

“Many teachers want to incorporate technology into everyday classes but do not have the resources or guidance needed to accomplish this goal. At Teachers Network, we are dedicated to providing support for teachers in all areas of classroom instruction, particularly technology. We are excited to use TeachNet to offer online resources created by teachers, for teachers that can be accessed freely and easily by educators around the world,” said Ellen Dempsey, CEO and President of Teachers Network and former public school teacher.

Using input from experienced teachers, TeachNet aims to help teachers improve student learning by integrating web-based lessons into their regular instructional practice. By logging onto http://teachersnetwork.org/TeachNet, educators gain access to a wide range of curriculum, technical specialists and grants, along with a supportive network where they can develop additional technological skills. Resources offered on the site include lesson plans in thirteen subject areas and all grade levels and over 500 sample technology projects from classrooms around the world. Each of the projects and suggestions has been tested and proven successful in the classroom by national and international educators.

TeachNet is created and supported by the Teachers Network, along with AT&T Foundation, allowing educators to take advantage of the training and mentoring resources at no cost. TeachNet is one of the many free or low-cost initiatives Teachers Network undertakes to support educators. Earlier this month, Teachers Network, in conjunction with the New York City Department of Education (DOE) and the Citigroup Foundation, launched the “New Teacher Support Program.” The new program, which includes the New Teachers Handbook, Successful Teaching Practices in Action CD-ROM set, and New Teacher On-Line Survival Courses, helps train teachers during the most critical point in their careers.
