For many years, Netflix has allowed teachers to screen documentaries in their classrooms. However, this isn’t possible with schools closed in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. In response to the situation, Netflix has made a selection of their documentary features and series available for free on the Netflix US YouTube channel.
Each title also has educational resources available, which can be used by both students and teachers and Netflix will be doing Q&As with some of the creators behind these projects so that students can hear from them firsthand.
Netflix hopes this will, in a small way, help teachers around the world.
Note these documentaries are currently available in English. Subtitles in more than a dozen languages will be available soon. Also if you are a parent or teacher, please check the ratings so that you can make informed choices for your students and children.
