Pearson Partners With NBC Learn to Provide Video Resources to Classrooms

Houston, TX (PRWEB) September 25, 2014

Pearson, the world’s leading learning company, today announced a partnership with NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBCUniversal News Group, that will provide students and teachers exclusive access to more than 17,000 premium education videos. NBC Learn’s vast video library, including original content created to align with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) standards for social studies, is now available through Pearson’s Realize, a next generation learning management system, and its Online Learning Exchange (OLE) platform, a searchable K-12 digital library of standards-based learning resources.

One of the largest news archives in the world, dating back to the 1920s, NBC Learn’s collections are updated with current events daily, featuring stories from such celebrated programs as “NBC Nightly News,” “TODAY,” “Meet the Press” and “Dateline NBC.” NBC Learn is staffed by veteran NBC News producers, who have created scores of original stories and Town Hall events around the country, in collaboration with the National Science Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation and others. The award-winning collections include Chemistry Now, Changing Planet, Science of NFL Football, Science of the Winter Olympic Games and Finishing the Dream.

“When students can see events in the making — whether current or historical — it puts them right in the center of the learning experience, allowing them to gain a deeper understanding of issues, implications and context,” said Pearson’s Managing Director for Learning Services Bethlam Forsa. “Through a shared commitment to ensuring that students and teachers have access to powerful and engaging learning resources, Pearson and NBC have forged this partnership that will provide Texas students with access to extremely-timely learning resources that are aligned to their learning goals for social studies.”

“We’re proud to team with Pearson to bring decades of history alive for students by tapping into our rich archive of news reported by our world-class journalists,” said Soraya Gage, vice president and general manager, NBC Learn. “NBC Learn is committed to growing our brand in the education market through innovative partnerships like this one.”

NBC Learn’s original videos and archival news stories are generally brief — fewer than six minutes in length — allowing teachers to engage students in a short timeframe. The videos are full stories, with a beginning, middle and end, reported by some of the most famous journalists in broadcast history, including John Chancellor, Tom Brokaw, Tim Russert and Brian Williams.

Commenting on the value of the collaboration, Janice McNeil, library resource specialist and instructional technology liaison at Cypress Lakes High School in Katy, Texas, said, “We have relied on NBC Learn as a valuable and versatile resource to put primary source materials in our students’ hands. The addition of TEKS-aligned videos to the NBC Learn library, and the new option allowing access through Pearson’s instructional platforms, provides us with powerful tools for framing history and current events in context for students, while ensuring that lessons meet and exceed state standards.”
