PUHSD Community Gains Free Access to NBC Learn

Phoenix Union teachers, students and parents can now benefit from an online multi-media collection of over 12,000 videos, documents and images from NBC Learn, the education arm of NBC News. These resources, which include historic primary-source newscasts, the latest current events and original education video from NBC Learn, are aligned to curriculum and state standards.  As part of NBC’s Education Nation Los Angeles events in May, NBC News and the University of Phoenix donated 250 middle and high school site licenses for NBC Learn K-12, and Phoenix Union received the two-year subscription, plus free training and professional development sessions.  NBC Learn is accessible from the Phoenix Union website at www.phoenixunion.org/nbclearn

 Said NBC news anchor Brian Williams of this new educational feature, “If all these words and pictures were locked in a vault on aging film and video tape, and never used for learning purposes, that would be a genuine tragedy.”
