As educators, we provide knowledge by sharing stories. But the process of teaching yields some of the greatest stories of all. We'd like to invite you to share your story about how public media has had a positive impact in the classroom.

I use PBS LearningMedia to engage my students in learning. My children get very excited when they see videos of children explaining science topics and hands-on science experiments. My children love the ZOOM activities and they’re quick, they’re easy, and they’re usually materials that I don’t need to really go out searching/looking for.

My students loved the ZOOM activity where they created hover boards, where they used old CDs and balloons. I used this activity with 5th grade because we were studying variables and my children had done balloon airplanes and this was a cool way– they said it was kind of high tech and futuristic– and the kids really enjoyed it and it was very cheap activity and the kids, right away, were so excited to share it with the other grades and the other students in the class. I also give the printout of the activity for kids and they are able to do it and replicate the activity at home.
