CARSON CITY Nev. – Vegas PBS, in partnership with the Nevada Department of Education (NDE), is providing all Nevada educators and students with high-quality instructional resources through OnePlaceNevada (OnePlaceNV). This digital portal is free of charge and available in every county. It houses hundreds of thousands of instructional media resources that are aligned with Nevada’s Academic Content Standards.
Through a grant from NDE, Vegas PBS created this statewide instructional portal with the purpose of increasing access and new avenues to learning for all Nevada students. For educators, the site offers a wide array of high-quality teaching materials and tools as well as access to professional development.
Educators and students may access the portal at oneplacenv.vegaspbs.org. For login and password information, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
As part of the OnePlaceNV launch, educators are invited to participate in
the first of a series of “Technology Tuesday” webinars. The first webinar
will be held on Tuesday, June 23, at 3:30 p.m. Educators may register here: oneplacenv.vegaspbs.org. Subsequent webinars will take place on the third Tuesday of every month starting July 21 through December 15, 2020. The first 20 educators to register and attend a webinar will receive a “thank you package” from Vegas PBS.
“We are thrilled to partner with Vegas PBS to make OnePlaceNV available to educators and students across our state,” said Jhone Ebert, State Superintendent of Public Instruction. “Providing access to multimedia resources is crucial to our ongoing efforts to expand high-quality virtual learning opportunities.”
"As the demand for distance education and at-home learning increases in Nevada, OnePlaceNV will enable educators in every county to inspire their students with easily accessible, instructional tools,” said Tom Axtell, General Manager of Vegas PBS. "We will continue to respond to educator feedback and integrate new tools to make OnePlaceNV a valued resource for teachers to find media for their instructional needs.”
The digital databases available at OnePlaceNV include: Learn360, EBSCO Host, PBS Learning Media, The Library of Congress, Khan Academy, and more. This user-friendly portal allows educators and students to search by keyword, grade level, subject, or resource type through a single platform. High-quality instructional tools include videos, interactives, audio clips, photos, lesson plans and more.
“Vegas PBS has been on the cutting edge of online educational resources, and OnePlaceNV is an exciting next step in supporting our state’s educators,” said Dr. Niki Bates, Director of Vegas PBS’ Educational Media Services. “We are grateful for our partnership with the Nevada Department of Education to make free digital resources available to every educator and student in Nevada.”
