PBS LearningMedia LAUNCHES WITH WORLD-CLASS CONTENT FROM PUBLIC MEDIA AND ITS PARTNERS
Free Innovative Classroom-Ready Media Available to Every Teacher and Student Across the Country
International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Philadelphia, PA, June 27, 2011 – To foster classroom innovation and engagement, PBS and WGBH, and their producing partners WNET and KET, along with WTCI and 30 other PBS member stations, today launched PBS LearningMedia (pbslearningmedia.org), a free service for all teachers, students and families nationwide. In addition to a rich public media library, PBS LearningMedia has content contributed from other publicly funded organizations, including the National Archives, the Library of Congress and NPR, as well as content funded by NASA, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health and the US Department of Education, to deliver thousands of resources for use in the classroom and with home-schoolers.
“As America’s largest classroom, PBS and our local stations are helping to re-imagine classroom learning and are partnering with our producers and teachers to engage students to accelerate academic achievement,” said Paula Kerger, PBS President and CEO. “PBS LearningMedia is a key part of the solution to one of the nation’s biggest challenges – improving student progress to build our future workforce.”
Delivering unprecedented access to a robust digital library aligned to Common Core State Standards and available to all preK-16 classrooms, PBS LearningMedia is the next generation in digital media platforms with high-quality content drawn from more than 1,500 public media producers, 350 local stations, such as WGBH’s NOVA science series among many others, and a growing list of other contributors.
Beginning today, teachers and students have immediate access for their lessons and homework to more than 14,000 research-based instructional resources – including videos, interactives, images, audio files, mobile apps, lesson plans, and worksheets. Combining dynamic and engaging instructional content with professional development support, PBS LearningMedia empowers educators to create media-rich curriculum lessons that meet the needs of 21st century learners. Through PBS LearningMedia, teachers can:
- quickly and easily find relevant resources, localized to their needs, to differentiate instruction for a diverse range of learners;
- personalize the site by tagging resources and share ideas, recommendations and comments on how they’ve used media assets in their teaching with their professional learning networks via email or social media tools, such as Facebook and Twitter; and
- develop “class pages” -- curated content lists -- for student viewing, feedback and instruction on interactive white boards and school-based intranets and other networking tools.
