Virtual Reality Desktops

Courses Focusing on Digital Literacies
KQED Teach, a new online learning platform, supports educators’ growing media literacy needs by helping them develop the media skills necessary to bring media production to their learning environments. KQED Teach courses are free and self-paced so that educators can learn what they want, when they want.
One Book Connecting the World
The Global Read Aloud program uses social media to improve student learning. Over a six-week period, classes all over the world read the same book. Using Twitter, Skype, Write About, Edmodo, or another social media platform, students connect and engage with other classes from every corner of the globe to discuss the book. The 2016 Global Read Aloud will take place between October 3 and November 11.
Not everything in the Book is time sensitive so be sure to check out the archives.
