TeachNet NYC

About Us

TeachNet is a professional development program for K-12 public school educators who develop, digitize, and disseminate web-based curriculum materials. Launched in New York City in 1998 to support a global network of teachers, TeachNet provides training, grants, networking, and resource sharing to enthusiastic and dedicated teachers at seven of the Teachers Network affiliate sites.

Participating teachers:

  • Create and share engaging, standards- and technology-based lesson plans in a variety of subject areas and grade levels;
  • Receive support from staff and other teachers at every step, with technical and pedagogical feedback, online discussion forums, summer institutes, and editors who help put lesson plans in a consistent, clear form for publication on the Teachers Network web site;
  • Join an online and offline professional community of educators who are dedicated to the effective integration of technology into the school curriculum; and
  • Disseminate their work via publication on the web, conference presentations, program newsletters and catalogs, and award ceremonies.
