Are you looking for free educational videos for kids? The folks at Nepris have just given students and families free access to their library of thousands of educational videos for kids. You’ll find live discussions with experts from a variety of fields and lots of content to explore.
If you haven’t heard of Nepris before, they are a virtual learning platform used by thousands of educators. Through their platform, Nepris connects educators (and now students and families learning remotely) with videos of professionals from a variety of industries. In these videos, the experts talk about their careers and shine a light into their everyday work.
Free Educational Videos for Kids
The folks at Nepris have a library of videos that are now entirely free to families — over 9,000 archived sessions. The video library is extensive, and teachers, families, and students will find lots to choose from there. As you can see in the screenshot below, students can use a keyword search to find different types of content.
There is also an option to filter content by category. Students can search for videos based on “career clusters,” such as finance and health science. You can also use grade level filters to find content designed for specific age groups. Although there are thousands of full-length videos on Nepris’s platform, users can also search for “micro-videos” that are shorter in length and content to specific topics.
Industry Chats for College & Career Readiness
In addition to accessing all of these archived videos, Nepirs is also giving families an opportunity to join live “industry chats” with STEM experts hosted online. Now, every educator, student, and parent who wants to join in will have access to a free spot. As you can see in the screenshot below, there are lots of events on the calendar.
Of course, you don’t have to join live; you can watch a replay later, too. The industry chats are live, interactive talks with guest speakers. These talks take place online at different times of the day, and students and families can now join in. Click here to see the upcoming calendar.
Using Educational Videos for Kids
The resources from Nepris are extensive. I want to share a few ideas on how to use them with students during remote learning and classroom learning.
- Share a video for students to watch along with a discussion prompt or reflection question. They can post their response in a class forum.
- Let families know about upcoming events in a class newsletter. Encourage them to watch as a whole family or to check in with their children if they watch one on their own.
- Ask students to watch a video and then develop questions for their own expert interviews. Have them locate an expert and record their version of an expert panel.
The resources from Nepris are now free for families, students, and teachers. You can learn more by heading over to their video library homepage. Don’t forget to use the search bar and search filters as you look through these free educational videos for kids!
