Wide Open School is a new destination for families and educators that debuted in March 2020 in response to the pandemic and nationwide shift to distance learning. The mission of Wide Open School is to collect, curate, and disseminate the best online and offline learning activities from leaders in education, as recommended by Common Sense's expert editors , who rate and review media and technology based on age-appropriateness, quality, and learning potential.

What resources will you find?

These are just some of the activities families will find on Wide Open School to keep kids active and learning all summer long:
  • Virtual field trips to remarkable places like the Canadian tundra with Discovery Education.
  • Custom workouts from basketball players like the Detroit Pistons' Langston Galloway with the Jr. NBA.
  • Civic engagement activities, like building a presidential campaign to "Win the White House" with iCivics.
