By facilitating communication between and among education professionals, KQED Learning Link helps teachers: * make better use of educational technologies such as computers and television; * locate available resources, including online databases, professional development opportunities, classroom lessons and activities and news related to public broadcasting; * learn how to integrate technology resources into the curriculum and implement them in the classroom; * network with other educators for enrichment, lesson planning and curriculum sharing; * develop classroom projects with other schools. In the near future, KQED Learning Link will offer a Student Service that offers classrooms and individual students the opportunity to exchange messages via electronic mail, discussion groups and bulletin boards. Also, the Student Service will contain resources for students such as a database of colleges and universities, science clubs and activities and local cultural arts opportunities. KQED Learning Link is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
