PBS Students: Educational Resources at Your Fingertips

PBS Students is a new app designed for students and teachers created by PBS LearningMedia.  Students now have access on their iPads to educational videos, quizzes, games, images, and articles that can be tied in with district curriculum.  The app correlates with PBS LearningMedia Student Portal which is web based and was launched earlier this year. It is designed for students in grades K-12 so they have safe and trusted access to resources in all subject areas. 





In math, we have been working on division. A quick search of content brings up resources for students to use so concepts can be reinforced or enhanced. Students can also use it to help them with questions about their homework.


It is a great learning tool to use to help enrich and enhance the curriculum.  A quick search for Veteran's Day, which is Wednesday brought up several great resources.



PBS LearningMedia is designed for educators so they can incorporate digital media into their lessons.  A rich library of digital resources are available in all curricular areas. It is a great learning tool to use for primary sources, lesson ideas, and interactive content. Educators can create personalized learning for students by using the Productivity Tools for Teachers. After teachers create a quiz or assignment students have easy access by entering a code provided by their teacher. 

Educators also have access to professional development though PBS LearningMedia Professional Development.

I would love to hear how other educators are using PBS LearningMedia resources in their classroom.
