The Indiana DOE purchased a license allowing all Indiana educators access to NBC Learn – a new interactive site full of engaging content and video clips 3-6 minutes long tied to Indiana State and Common Core Standards.
“For more than 80 years, NBC News has been documenting the people, places, and events that shape our world. NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, is dedicated to making these historic stories, images and primary source documents available on-demand to teachers, students, and parents.
NBC Learn has already digitized more than 12,000 stories from the NBC News archives — one of the largest news archives in the world, dating back to the 1920s. In addition, collections are updated with current events every day, Monday through Friday, with stories from such celebrated programs as NBC Nightly News, the TODAY show, Meet the Press, Dateline NBC, as well as the networks of MSNBC, CNBC, and Telemundo. “-http://www.nbclearn.com/portal/site/learn/about
