Western Reserve Public Media’s Department of Educational Services is funded by the state of Ohio through the Ohio Department of Education. It serves K-12 students and educators in 10 Ohio counties, which includes more than 100 public school districts, 150 nonpublic schools, 300,000 students and 24,000 educators.
Since 1973, Educational Services has helped teachers to learn about the latest educational technologies. Educators also use the station’s instructional television programming; our locally produced multimedia curriculum projects to help students prepare for and pass Ohio’s proficiency tests; and our in-school technology and instructional television consultation services.
Western Reserve Public Media’s Department of Educational Services is part of a statewide network of educational technology agencies that provides collaborative training to all educators across the state.
Between 2013 and 2015, Educational Services developed and offered more than 250 courses (online and face-to-face) to area educators. Our educational technology consultants delivered more than 70 technology workshops to 1,300 educators for over 2,400 contact hours.
Our professional development team possesses certification in many areas including Google Certified Training, INFOhio iCoach training and Microsoft Innovative Educator training, and is also part of the Microsoft Partners in Learning Network.
