PBS Launches LearningMedia, a New Digital Repository for Educational Content
PBS is launching a new repository of digital resources for educators today. PBS LearningMedia offers free access to thousands of pieces of digital content, including videos, interactive media, and support materials. That material comes not just from PBS, but from over 30 local member stations, as well as from other publicly funded organizations including the National Archives, NASA, and the Library of Congress.
The LearningMedia content covers all subject areas, and despite the association of PBS (well, Sesame Street) with early learners, the materials cover all age groups as well. In fact about 40% of the content on the site is targeted at grades 9 thru 12. The site is easily searchable, and lets teachers save, share and organize materials.
