Content is fresh and updated frequently, and the community that they're working to create with the Do Now activity is exciting. However, the content could be better organized. Clicking on various links often takes you to the same place, and the main page is a bit convoluted. It's hard to know where to look for teacher resources as opposed to content directed toward kids. However, this problem may exist because there's just so much to look at here, including five separate blogs, all about education. The Early Learning section could be more substantial; it basically just links out to other PBS assets.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
