Watch a collection of 2012 education reports from John Merrow and Learning Matters Below is every piece we produced for PBS NewsHour in 2012. We also produced other videos directly for the web in 2012; you can watch those here. Our relationship with NewsHour dates back many years, and while we produce documentaries and other content for different sources (such as The Education of Michelle Rhee for Frontline on January 8, 2013), year-over-year the primary distributor of our education reporting is PBS’ award-winning nightly news show. These pieces are listed in chronological order from the beginning of the year to the end of the year. Our work is made possible, as is all PBS reporting, by generous support from viewers like you.

PBS Kids Cyberchase - Dozens of Math Activities PBS Kids Cyberchase offers dozens of online and offline mathematics games and activities for students. The collection of more than forty online games are designed to make students think about patterns and use logic to solve challenges. The offline activities use the same model, but are designed for hands-on offline learning. The highlight of the Cyberchase online activities are the "quest" activities in which students have to solve problems as along a journey as they work toward a goal. For example, in Mission Motherboard students have to solve problems to earn money that they then use to buy parts to fix a motherboard.

I loved read the stories about news from other parts of the world (I guess I was destined to become a social studies teacher).
