About the ERC

The WGTE Public Broadcasting Educational Resource Center (ERC) provides educators with instructional resources to promote the creation of highly interactive K-12 learning environments.  The ERC Media Library offers instructional television, copies of PBS and other educational programs, CD-ROMs, DVDs, computer hardware and software, cooperative learning kits, and lesson planning guides.  With 10,000+ items in the collection, the Media Library has been helping teachers enhance classroom instruction for over 50 years.  Additionally, ERC professional development opportunities are held throughout the year, assisting educators in integrating effective, research-based practices and technology within their curriculum.  Our workshops cover a diverse range of topics, including the use of video resources in the classroom, building web sites, evaluating Internet resources, integrating software applications, and writing across the curriculum.  Your WGTE Memberships affords you the opportunity to become a part of this NW Ohio and SE Michigan learning community!
