Education Resources at the College of Education
The College of Education has developed or hosts the following educational resources suitable for parents and teachers:
Annenberg/CPB Online Video Library
The College of Education has partnered with Annenberg/CPB in its efforts to provide online, on-demand
access to its enormous catalog of top-quality educational programming. Annenberg/CPB has digitized and made freely available
a significant portion of its vast collection of teaching and professional development resources,
including almost 1000 hours of video. The Learning Technology Center in the College of Education hosts a mirror site containing all of Annenberg/CPB’s video on demand resources.
Books R4 Teens
This site features in-depth reviews and teaching ideas for recently published books in young adult literature.
Elementary School Math Club
This site provides five plans for group activities that may be used by teachers or parents. The objective of the Elementary School Math Club is to stimulate children's mathematical curiosity. Hopefully, experiencing the wonders of math will result in a positive attitude toward the subject that will serve them well throughout their formal education and beyond.
Longhorn Legacy: 100 Years of Football Programs
This online exhibit of over 100 game programs is a collaborative effort between the University of Texas' Department of Intercollegiate Athletics, the H.J. Lutcher Stark Center for Physical Culture and Sports in the Department of Kinesiology and Health Education and the Center for American History. The site is designed to be used interactively with the wealth of historical images and written materials on the official UT football site. Be sure to click the links as you go through the web site so you can learn more about players, coaches and the traditions of UT football.
The Presidential Timeline
The Presidential Timeline provides a single point of access to an ever-growing selection of digitized assets from the collections of the twelve Presidential Libraries of the National Archives. Among these assets you’ll find documents, photographs, audio recordings, and video relating to the events of the presidents’ lives. The goal of the project is to make these resources readily and freely available to students, educators, and adult learners throughout the world. The Presidential Timeline was designed and developed by the Learning Technology Center in The University of Texas at Austin College of Education, in conjunction with the Presidential Libraries and Terra Incognita Productions.
