New Free Resource: Wide Open School

Common Sense has launched a brand-new, free online resource to support families and educators who are transitioning to remote learning as a result of the coronavirus: WideOpenSchool.org. In partnership with groups such as Sesame Workshop, Khan Academy, PBS, and Google, Wide Open School features a free collection of the best learning experiences and activities for kids, organized by grade band and subject. 

As always, we must ensure that all kids — regardless of zip code or background — have access to the opportunities technology can offer. Common Sense is committed to getting students and families connected and closing the digital divide — now and for good. 

Curated and coordinated by the experts at Common Sense, Wide Open School is the result of a collaboration among leading publishers, nonprofits, and education and technology companies. Wide Open School features a free collection of the best learning experiences and activities for kids, organized by grade band and subject. You will also find daily schedules with creative breaks and recommendations to keep kids engaged and exploring, one day (or one hour) at a time.

Wide Open School can only fulfill its mission if all kids and families can access it; Common Sense is committed to ensuring connectivity now. And, as always, they will continue to offer guidance and support as you navigate privacy and safety in all you do online.

Common Sense, along with their partners, are proud to bring you this new offering to support kids during this critical period. Visit Wide Open School to take advantage of the best resources available for kids right now.
