Imagine the change when students take an active role as researchers, collaborators, data analysts, communicators, and creators... when teachers guide and coach students as their work progresses.
It’s a far different experience from the typical assignment that asks students to answer someone else’s questions and then report and restate someone else’s findings.
KQED Learn is for educators who value student inquiry and students who want to participate in real-world research, making original content and collaborating with peers in and beyond their classrooms, It’s a platform that empowers students to make their voices heard, share their perspectives and learn from others’ points of view.
- KQED Learn is free for schools and students. It’s a safe environment that protects student and teacher privacy.
- It’s flexible by design, so teachers can use it in the ways that enrich their curriculum and instructional needs, whether they use the continually updated topics developed by the KQED Education team or build their own.
- KQED Learn was developed by educators and leverages KQED’s trusted multimedia resources. Teachers who participated in the platform’s development emphasize these important instructional advantages:
"I got the best projects I’ve ever gotten!"
That’s a direct quote from a high school science teacher who participated in our pilot of KQED Learn.
