A new website called Illinois Edition provides more than 10,000 video clips, audio clips, and images free of charge for teachers to use in their classrooms.
Listen to the WUIS news story for more details.
At the Illinois Edition website, teachers can access 3 resources right out of the box with no hassle. After that, they are prompted to create a free account. The site is searchable by grade level, subject area, media or resource type. While the bulk of the resources are available in English, a few are also offered in Spanish.
Several of the videos also link to ready-made lesson plan ideas with supporting documents, which can be tailored to fit individual classroom needs. Resources for grades K-12 can be found throughout the site, not matter the content area.
…and it’s all FREE!
Many thanks to Rick Lawsha, Galesburg (IL) CUSD #205 District Technology Director for the tip on this resource!
