This may be the best-ever educational app to cross our iPad in months. PBS Students takes literally tens of thousands of videos, photos, articles and games on almost any school topic you can think of — science, math, language arts, social studies — and serves up a top-notch mix of media. Think videos by Jim Henson Company, NOVA, National Archives, NASA, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhoods, Curious George, Wild Kratts, Dinosaur Train and Ken Burns. (Yes, you may want to watch some of this yourself.)
PBS Students is like YouTube for learning, getting help on homework and having fun in an extremely safe, commercial free environment that unites all of PBS’s content into an easy-to-you tool. For teachers and homeschoolers, there are lesson plans that accompany many of the videos.
Designed for students in grades K-12.
