First-Ever, Educator-Centered Web Portal; A Free Professional
Development Tool for Teachers.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, June 18, 2000- Teachnology, Inc. today announced
the launch of TeAch-nology.com (www.teach-nology.com), the
first-ever, free web portal specifically designed for educators.
The intended audience for this web site is Pre-K through grade 12
teachers; school administrators; higher education, specifically
teacher educators; and school support staff.
TeAch-nology.com will offer educators over 75,000+
professionally reviewed web sites and access to
educational literature. Among its many features, the site also
offers free e-mail, 50 megabytes of free Internet hard drive
space, access to weekly downloads, and a free newsletter.
TeAch-nology.com is designed to offer professional development for
educators through its multitude of links to current trends and
practice, through tutorials on "hot topics", and through message
boards that offer a means to collaborate with other educators.
In addition, an area is provided in which users can ask both an
educational expert and/or a technology expert questions related to the
On July 1, 2000 TeAch-nology.com will begin to offer a
"Monthly Motivator." These motivators are multimedia-driven
"Flash Productions" that are designed to provide teachers with
reflective themes in educational practice. The goal of the
monthly productions is to inspire teachers to consider various
teaching modalities in their quest to meet the many challenges of
the 21st Century learner.
CEO and co-founder of Teachnology, Inc., Lucy DiPaola, Ph.D.,
envisioned the concept of "Teach-nology" as a vehicle to
encourage teachers to use technology in their teaching. DiPaola
recently stated, "It's as simple as adding an "A" to technology...that's
how close we are to the future of teaching."
Paul Mckee, V.P. of World-Wide Operations recently stated, "
We started TeAch-nology.com because, as educators, we have found
the Internet and computers to be overwhelming. Busy teachers have
little time to devote to conquering the multifaceted world of
technology. Unfortunately, the people that could adequately
assist teachers in developing the necessary skills find higher
paying jobs in industry.
As a FREE service, TeAch-nology.com offers guidance and support
to help alleviate the barriers that can prevent teachers
from using technology effectively."
There is no doubt that there is an impetus for using
technology in the classroom. In response to this ever-growing challenge,
Teachnology, Inc. teamed up with a staff of professional web
developers and created a business model that offers
unlimited staff development for FREE!
Dare to enter into a new millennium of teaching with technology.
TeAchnology.com (www.teach-nology.com) truly represents the
"art and science of teaching with technology."
