3 Easy Ways to Find Educational Resources

Did you know that NYLearns has hundreds, no, thousands of free educational resources available to use in your classroom right now? Not only that, but our content specialists update the featured content weekly to reflect current events and seasonal trends.

That means you can stop wasting your valuable time sifting through thousands of potentially unusable search engine results for classroom activities, and start using NYLearns’ standards-aligned educational resources to build curriculum that reflects the state standards and performance indicators you need to teach.

Here are three ways you can quickly find educational resources and instructional content aligned to NYS standards:

1. Search by Keyword, Grade Level, or Subject Area

This one seems pretty straightforward, but did you know that you can also narrow your search results to include specific types of materials and resources?

Click on the check box in front of the content type to search for Lesson Plans, Learning Experience/Units, E-Books, Interactive Maps, Web-based Practices, and more.


2. Search by Content Provider

All of our educational resources come from reputable content providers like Karpeles, LearnZillion, and the New York State Education Department – just to name a few.

You can narrow your searches to only include resources from a specific content provider. We’ve compiled a list of unique keywords that allow you to browse specific collections of content providers within NYLearns based on your own interests.


3. Search Featured Content and the Featured Content Archive

New instructional content and educational resources are featured every week to our community of users in the NYLearns Featured Content section.


The featured content archive is arranged by Elementary, Intermediate, and Commencement level as well as by Activity, Learning Experience, Lesson Plan, Rubric, and more.


Plus, NYLearns subscribers can save all of their favorite educational resources in their ePortfolios to add to curriculum maps, build formative assessments, create planbooks, and add to their teacher websites.
