Educational Resources: PBS LearningMedia to Offer Schools Initial Access to U.S. Department of Education’s Learning Registry
In a move that brings vast digital educational resources together for teachers to use in the classroom, content shared through the U.S. Department of Education’s Learning Registry will be accessible for free through PBS LearningMedia. An expansive collection of resources, including photos, video, and audio files from federal organizations like NASA, the Library of Congress, and the National Archives, will now be easier to find, access and integrate into educational environments.
PBS LearningMedia, which features a robust content library with over 16,000 digital assets, includes lesson plans, background essays, and discussion questions for PreK-12 educators that are designed and aligned to core standards. PBS’ online media-on-demand service combines links to resources from the Learning Registry with original content from public broadcasting producers and programs like WGBH, NOVA, FRONTLINE, AMERICAN EXPERIENCE, SID THE SCIENCE KID, and THE ELECTRIC COMPANY, all in one place and free. PBS LearningMedia’s growing library of curriculum-based assets is designed to support classroom and student achievement across math, science, reading/language arts, social studies, health/physical education, as well as world languages.
