    Participate in Research: Watch 1 VLC video clip and provide comments

    The VLC team has partnered with researchers from the University of Illinois to improve your experience on the VLC. Your input as a VLC member is invaluable and will inform how the VLC can be improved to support teacher learning from video and from other teachers.

    If you are willing to watch one video clip, provide comments on this clip, answer a short survey, and earn $25 for participating, please register here.

    After registering, you will be taken to a page where you will participate in the study. After completion of the study, you will be taken to a page where you can enter in the information needed to compensate you for your participation.

    Our partners are Michelle Perry, Ph.D. (University of Illinois, Department of Educational Psychology) and Joseph Robinson-Cimpian, Ph.D. (University of Illinois, Department of Educational Psychology) and the research project is called Understanding and Improving Learning from Online Mathematics Classroom Videos. This study is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

    Earn Points on the VLC!

    The VLC is best when teachers participate--by uploading resources, answering each other's questions on the Groups page, commenting on videos and other resources, and recommending each other's posts.

    To encourage these kinds of participation, we've started giving points for participating in the VLC. You can see your total points on MyPage.

    If you earn a lot of points over time, you will earn a bronze, silver, or gold badge! And if you earn the most points in a given month, you will be honored on the Home page as the User of the Month.

    We hope you enjoy this new addition to the VLC!

    EM4 Classroom Resource Package Module

    We are excited to announce a new online professional development resource for teachers using Everyday Mathematics 4. The Everyday Mathematics 4 Classroom Resource Package (CRP) learning module is now available free of charge. This module acquaints you with the contents of the CRP, your instructional tools for using Everyday Mathematics. This module serves as a great resource for new staff members and veteran teachers who would like a refresher on the EM4 features. It also serves as a great ongoing resource for teachers to refer to throughout the school year. All participants receive a certificate of completion once the module is completed.

    Check out the new resource here.
