HEC-TV is announcing an eclectic and exciting slate of HEC-TV Live! programs for the 2013/14 school year.
Each program will have its own website page, built in advance, with materials for teachers, students, and any interested audience members. Once the program has aired live, its archive and program materials will be available at hectv.org for on-demand FREE viewing.
The continuing series are Constitution Day, Inside the Artist’s Studio, The Science Behind, and History in the First Person. This year, HEC-TV Live! is introducing a new series, Explore!, a half-hour program targeted to grades 3 through 6.
“Explore! is a new interactive 30 minute educational program that engages kids to explore their world with face-to-face discussions with real life explorers, historians and experts in their field,” said Producer Jacqui Poor.
For the new school year, the program has added more video elements to its pre and post show activities. Promos of upcoming shows are also posted on the HEC-TV web site to help teachers be aware of future educational opportunities.
“We decided to add more video to the program as we were reviewing the 2012/13 school year to see what improvements we could make,” said Helen Headrick, Educational Opportunities Coordinator. “Tim Gore (HEC-TV Live! host) and I looked over last years’ programs and selected video clips to add to our site.”

Are you curious about the benefits of flip teaching, and how it is improving student outcomes around the world? If you’ve considered flip teaching but think it might be too difficult, CSD and CrazyForEducation are offering workshops this fall that will help teachers and administrators understand exactly what flip teaching is and how it can benefit your students.
Our Flip Teaching sessions will help you learn the best strategies for flipping your classroom, what to include (and not to include) in lessons and how to fill up the extra class time that every flip teacher experiences. Attendees will hear from flip teachers from across the country who will explain why they flipped their classrooms and the successes they’ve achieved.
