from kindergarten to high school

Teaching Channel

Teaching Channel is a video showcase — on the Internet and TV — of inspiring and effective teaching practices in US schools. It has a rapidly growing community of registered members who trade ideas and share inspiration from each other. With the help of the Tch community, its mission is to revolutionize how teachers learn, connect, and inspire each other to improve the outcomes for all K-12 students across the US (K-12 stands for: "from Kindergarten (K) for 4–6-year-olds through twelfth grade (12) for 18–19-year-olds or in other words it generally coincides with European Primary and Secondary education).

In order to accomplish its mission, there are three simple goals, all of them reliant on input from teachers:
• Build professional learning resources that teachers want
• Deepen and improve opportunities for teacher learning
• Elevate and celebrate teachers in our society

Teaching Channel videos are produced by a team of professionals — a collaborative effort between video production experts, education advisors, and the classroom teachers themselves, but it is important to note that Teaching Channel does not determine or influence the content taught in its videos.
The video library offers educators a wide range of subjects for grades K-12. The videos also include information on alignment with Common Core State Standards and ancillary material for teachers to use in their own classrooms.

Teaching Channel Presents is a weekly one-hour TV program that features Teaching Channel videos, it is broadcast only in the United States.
Teaching Channel is somewhat similar to the UK's Teacher TV channel that ceased to exist in 2009.

Thinkfinity

Thinkfinity is a website that gathers thousands of free lesson plans, interactives, videos, learning games. A Professional Development community has developed around the activity and the material on the website as well as several blogs and a news service about education (also available in RSS feed).
Teaching and learning resources in Thinkfinity are provided by content partners (USA leading education organizations) go through an expert review to check that all the content is accurate, up-to-date, unbiased and appropriate for students.
The website provides a useful research tool to easily find specific resources sorting them by subject, type, keyword, grade level and partner.
Classroom-ready lesson plans and other online learning materials make it easy to integrate Verizon Thinkfinity into the classroom: from the primary source documents you can print for each student to the interactive games students can play in pairs or individually, the resources are rich and varied to meet any teaching style and need.
Members of the online (free) community are provided with tools to organize resources, to network with friends and other teachers and to share ideas, plans and advice with others in the education community.
The website is aimed at students, teachers, library media specialists, parents, afterschool program providers, homeschoolers and anyone interested in teaching and learning.

MIT-K12 project

The website of MIT-K12 project contains dozens of student-made educational video produced within an ongoing initiative MIT launched in late 2011 in collaboration with Khan Academy. The project encourages MIT students to produce short videos teaching basic concepts in science and engineering.
The videos — aimed at students in grades from kindergarten through high school — are now accessible through a dedicated MIT website and YouTube channel.
Under MIT+K12, MIT students produce 5-10-minutes-long videos on topics of their choosing. In the three dozen videos posted so far, students have focused on topics ranging from flying robots to basic chemistry to Earth’s rotation.
