WGBH and Shared Studios present a special opportunity just for educators

WGBH Education welcomes educators to a unique open house event featuring the Shared Studios Portal. Educators will have the opportunity to step inside the portal and virtually meet, collaborate and share experiences with educators from Afghanistan, Mexico City and Los Angeles. This is a wonderful opportunity to explore how the portal can be used to enhance student experiences and your curriculum. Students and children are welcome to join you in these sessions, except for Mexico City which is educators only.

After you select your Portal Session, you can add on an optional Portal Information Presentation or a WGBH Studio Tour. Portal sessions are held in the WGBH Studios guest parking lot, where the portal is located. All other events are in the WGBH Studios Atrium at One Guest Street.
