eThemes Saves Time, Lowers Cost, and Improves Student Learning


The eMINTS National Center and the School of Information Science & Learning Technologies provide eThemes—a free, online database of carefully selected, child-safe learning materials, bringing media-rich content to classrooms across the country. eThemes includes thousands of websites grouped into over 2,500 thematic areas ranging from “advertising” to “zoos”. Aligned with the educational standards of Missouri and eight other states, teachers use eThemes materials because they are age appropriate and up-to-date. By saving teachers from the time-intensive task of finding high-quality instructional websites and reducing the need for expensive print materials, conservative estimates are that eThemes lowers the annual cost of K–12 education by millions. The eThemes website receives over 6,000,000 hits annually.
