Overnight Learning Block
Every morning from 1:00 a.m/midnight until 6:00/5:00
a.m., our overnight learning block provides
teachers and students with (free!) video resources that enhance and stimulate
interest in the curriculum. Students experience cultures, places and ideas
that they might not otherwise have access to, and teachers have access
to high quality videos they can afford! Also available on overnight programming
are professional development resources for continuing education.Many of
the series selected for the learning block have teacher's guides and/or
lesson plans available that complement and extend the series.

a vehicle for discovery. Using specific techniques, teachers can strategically
use video to promote student interest and understanding by targeting video
content and using it to promote teachers' own unique instructional agenda.
These lesson plans were
developed as a means to effectively use video in the classroom and as
a way to integrate multimedia resources into classroom curricula.
