Wide Open School
With all the online learning activities available now for kids learning from home, how do you choose? Which ones are educational? Which ones are engaging? Are they free? Common Sense Media helps answer these questions with Wide Open School.
More than 25 organizations have partnered to create a free collection of the best online learning experiences, curated by the editors at Common Sense. It’s designed to inspire kids, support teachers, and relieve families.
There are plenty of resources and they’re organized in a way that makes them easy to find. The inclusion of ‘life skills’, ‘emotional well-being’ and ‘get moving’ sections is a plus.
There is recognition that not all students have access to home broadband and/or computers. Some resources can be completed offline or on a smartphone.
If you’re a teacher or parent looking for online learning activities, visit Wide Open School more than once. The content and features are constantly updating.
