McGraw-Hill Education’s Networks™, a multimedia social studies learning program for middle and high school students will be launched at the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) Annual Conference.

Available through a subscription model, Networks combines engaging print and digital resources for world history, U.S. history and civics.

Students can watch videos of inspiring speeches made by historical figures such as Martin Luther King Jr., Franklin D. Roosevelt and John F. Kennedy. They can upload audio of key moments in time such as man’s first steps on the moon, or draw inspiration from a collection of images from the Revolutionary War to the pyramids of Egypt, while taking notes in their virtual notebooks and sharing and submitting assignments online.

The system will be available nationwide starting in January 2012.
