Dear Families and Educators,

Harvard Graduate School of Education have compiled a database of quality resources for children to continue learning at home. We hope these lessons can be useful for you and your children as we incorporate virtual learning to the system.

Below you will find a list of all of the key resources in the database. These are a mix of lessons designed by HGSE students and selected activities available online. You can search by age group, subject, topic and time or resources needed for the lesson.

To do this, click on "Data" from the menu above --> then click on "filter views" --> then click on "create new temporary filter view" or click on the tabs by age group. Every tab links directly to each lesson.  

The list is continuously being updated:

“The Imaginarium Education Programme aims to build a creative, collaborative community connecting educators, learners, students, artists and researchers to foster discovery and innovation in education through art. Our gift to you during this challenging time is a free download of our game, Solve It! We hope it will bring a new level of enjoyment to learning and encourage a generation of creative, critical thinking problem solvers. Have fun and keep us updated on any exciting innovations you come up with!”
