NBC Learn, the educational arm of NBC News, announced today that it will donate licenses to its “NBC Learn K-12” resource to all Delaware High Schools for the 2011-2012 school year. This gift matches a grant that the Honda Foundation launched last year, which funds the “NBC Learn K-12” resource to all Delaware middle schools—including teachers, students and their parents—for two years.

Subscriptions to “NBC Learn K-12” include:

  • More than 11,000 short, searchable and downloadable videos from the NBC News Archives and other content partners
  • K-12 videos aligned to Delaware State Standards
  • Current events updated daily
  • Award-winning original series such as Science of the Winter Olympic Games, Science of NFL Football, Chemistry Now, and Changing Planet
  • 24/7 access, from school, library or home· Individual accounts for all teachers, all students, and all parents

“NBC Learn's approach will make critical information more relevant, realistic and readily available to our state’s students. NBC News has played an important role in documenting so much of our nation’s recent history. Access to that information will help today’s students become tomorrow’s economic success stories,” said Delaware Governor Jack Markell, who co-chairs the National Common Core Standards initiative. “NBC Learn’s dynamic learning videos and content help Delaware classrooms come alive,” said Dr. Lillian Lowery, Delaware's Secretary of Education. “We’re delighted that our high school students can now access these engaging resources.”

"I am already making plans to use NBC Learn in my classes this fall. I love the "Chemistry of..." series, which will help my students see the connections between class topics normal things in their lives. I also look forward to accessing files of current science events," said Sue Gleason, a high school teacher in Appoquinimink School District. “What a great resource to keep students aware of the world around them.”
