PBS LearningMedia™: Connecting Educators & Students with Empowering Content and Cool Tech Tools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

PBS LearningMedia™, a digital media curriculum service, offers over 100,000 classroom-ready, standards-aligned resources including short video clips largely drawn from national broadcasts such as NOVA, American Experience, PBS NewsHour, Between the Lions, Curious George and Masterpiece. In addition, interactive activities, lesson plans, audio files, images, self-paced lessons and professional development can be searched, saved and shared to connect students and colleagues with high-interest, effective resources.

We’ll take a deep dive into the site’s user-friendly functionality and recently launched tools that empower teachers to integrate digital media into instruction through personalized learning experiences for students. After viewing new, meaningful content and a sneak peak at what’s coming, educators will have time to explore the site for specific areas of interest and leave inspired to connect students and colleagues with PBS digital resources shown to impact student knowledge, engagement, and higher order thinking skills and to improve teaching. One lucky participant will also win a prize of PBS related treats.
