The Annenberg Learner

"As part of its mission to advance excellent teaching in American schools, Annenberg Learner funds and distributes educational video programs – with coordinated online and print materials – for the professional development of K-12 teachers. Many programs are also intended for students in the classroom and viewers at home, with videos that exemplify excellent teaching. Annenberg Learner also partners with impactful organizations to provide other means of achieving this goal. As part of the Annenberg Foundation, Learner supports the Foundation’s mission to encourage the development of more effective ways to share ideas and knowledge."


Earlier this year my son was studying for his Statistics DSST it was suggested to us to use The Annenberg Learner site for additional content and help with some of the statistics concepts. We watched the videos and I found them to be very digestible and interesting. For the statistics class, called "Against All Odds," there are 32 videos that range in length from 6-14 minutes. There are also Faculty Guide Sets that have a lot of helpful practice and questions.


In addition to the statistics instruction, there are also history and economics classes that we've browsed and enjoyed. Be aware: Some of the videos on this site are dated, like REALLY dated. The Spanish and French classes look like they were recorded in the late 70's. The Spanish class is more like watching a soap opera.


One of the best things about the site are the interactives for the younger ages/grades. There are story-telling interactives and map interactives that we have browsed and found fun to use.
