School TV reloaded

"NRK School", NRK
Every broadcaster has a strongroom called archive. For decades programmes, many of which broadcast a single time in history, have been archived and locked away from the public who actually owns them.

Out of the basement and right into the classroom: The Norvegian broadcasting company decided not just to open its archives, but to launch a new educational platform where archive content is properly categorized, tagged and linked to learning targets. "NRK School" (NRK) features about 5000 clips of free radio and TV content, adapted for teachers and students in primary, secondary and upper secondary school. Of course students can create and submit their own content as well.

Public broadcasting reloaded: "NRK School" is an interesting mix of online archive and blended learning.
