National Geographic Education: Beta of Redesigned Resources Site For Students, Educators, Others

From a News Release:

National Geographic Education today announces the beta phase of its newly redesigned website, NatGeoEd.org, inviting user feedback from all interested K-12 teachers, informal educators and families.

NatGeoEd.org delivers an expanded and updated library of the National Geographic Society’s popular education content, combining National Geographic’s iconic media and expert resources with materials specifically developed to align with national education standards. The site includes a wide range of free educational resources to bring geography, science and social studies to life for educators, learners and their families. The redesign was guided by extensive research conducted in collaboration with the Education Development Center and designed and developed with the expertise of Blenderbox, a New York Web design firm. Research on the design of the site will continue throughout the beta phase, and users have the opportunity to provide feedback through easy-to-use tools that are available on every page.

The site is designed to meet the specific needs of different audiences, including K-12 classroom teachers, educators in informal settings, families and students. Audience views cater to the needs of specific users — including teachers, families, students and kids — and an enhanced search tool allows users to find content tailored to their needs. Features include multimedia activities and a growing reference library — with a glossary, encyclopedia and downloadable media — to support student research and homework. Connections to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube support community interaction among educators and learners.
