New digital resource center aims to inspire student innovation

New resources from PBS keep digital learning in the spotlight all year long

digital-resources-studentIn celebration of the third annual Digital Learning Day earlier this month, PBS LearningMedia, an on-demand media service for educators, has released a collection of free resources called “Be Inspired. Be an Innovator.

The digital collection includes dozens of videos, documentaries, and lesson plans that explore the creative and critical skills needed to develop products and processes that affect daily life.

These materials cover a range of topics for digital learning, including green technology, the role of science in the economy, and inventions—from Galileo’s telescope to the electric car. In addition, PBS LearningMedia has created a special video and infographic as reference guides to introduce and encourage digital innovation skills.

“More than ever before, educators are turning to digital technology and media to engage students and fuel learning,” said Vice President Alicia Levi. “PBS LearningMedia is thrilled to showcase a robust collection of resources and events to inspire students to become 21st-century innovators.”

More than 1.4 million educators reportedly have registered to use the PBS LearningMedia service, which is available nationwide and is aligned with national and Common Core standards.
