Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Power My Learning is a free website that contains high-quality educational activities and more for kids in grades K-12. The site doesn't create its own content; rather, it has education experts search other websites to find the best material, which they make accessible by putting it on Power My Learning. The site is easy to use and versatile, and its promises about quality are true -- nearly everything here is from a trustworthy source, such as PBS. This site is a super-safe and smart choice as an afterschool learning resource.

What's it about?

POWER MY LEARNING is a website that brings together free, curated educational content and activities from all over the Web. You can find academic games, videos, and interactive content aligned to the Common Core State Standards and across a range of subjects such as language arts, math, science, social studies, and technology. Activities are tagged by subject, grade, Common Core State Standards, and type (such as video or interactive). Scroll over an activity such as Slinkyball, and the intended grade level will appear (6-8), as will the category and subcategory (such as \"science/physics\"), any technical requirements, the Common Core standards, and a brief description. Parents and teachers can create a playlist that features various activities related to a particular subject and then can assign that list to kids.

Is it any good?

QUALITY

The site has done an excellent job of picking and choosing the best educational content from all over the Web. Sources like TedEd, Annenberg, and PBS (among others) truly are the cream of the crop, and it's handy to have them in one place. Everything is well organized, and the design is both kid-friendly and detailed enough for adults to navigate. Although it's ultimately a content aggregator, this is one of those sites that feels like a gift from the heavens: it's great, it's free, and it makes everyone's life a bit easier. One note: once you click a link, you're taken to that site, where the full range of content isn't guaranteed to be as high-quality as the recommended link.

Families can talk about...

  • Give your kids free rein to pick the content they explore on Power My Learning; there's so much good stuff there, they're sure to learn something.

  • Families can talk about study plans and the benefits of putting in extra time after school.
