Cable In The Classroom

Antietam Cable Television is pleased to offer Cable In The Classroom to schools in Washington County, MD.

Here's how it works. Antietam Cable Television provides FREE cable hook-ups and FREE monthly service to the schools in Washington County, Maryland. The national cable networks, such as CNN, Discovery, The Learning Channel, Nickelodeon, Arts and Entertainment, and many more, provide educational, interesting programming for teachers to use in their classrooms. All programming is commercial-free and copyright cleared, so schools can videotape the shows and begin to build their own video libraries for use in years to come. The shows cover a wide range of topics, including: science, math, biographies, the arts, history, and news from all over the world! Many of the programs are reformatted into modules that are easier to use in a classroom setting. CNN's Newsroom/World View program is produced especially for Cable in the Classroom! Teachers may use the programming any way they choose - there are no viewing requirements. And Cable in the Classroom provides curriculum-related support materials and helps expand and improve teacher resources.

It's a great way for Antietam Cable, parents, and education professionals to act as partners to harness the power of television as a positive force in our children's education. To learn more about the Cable in the Classroom public service project, visit www.ciconline.com.
