The Catholic Telemedia Network (CTN) has been serving the educational and spiritual needs of the children in the diocesan schools of Brooklyn and Queens for almost 50 years.
CTN’s core mission is to provide quality instructional media resources aligned to the common core curriculum at no cost to schools. Our initiatives fall into three main categories. First, providing content for Catholic school classrooms in Brooklyn and Queens. Second, offering professional development for teachers. Third, bringing technology in the form of 4G broadband connectivity, hardware and networking to schools.
Current content initiatives include Learn360, a learning library of more than 70,000 digital resources; EducationCity, a leading provider of digital resources including online learning for Pre-K to 6th grades; and Mathletics, an adaptive online math curriculum that uses a gaming format that students love.
Professional development for teachers includes webinars and faculty workshops on the best practices of digital learning.
CTN services assist teachers in meeting national technology standards established by the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and the Common Core State Standards, enabling students to collaborate with the world around them.
