"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the first." - Albert Einstein
The Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) is an independent source of information and news. It maintains its independence by means of financial support from individual citizens like you and me. It's programming, in my opinion, is superior to that of commercial media and the program embedded below is a prime example.
You may agree or disagree with the ideas presented in The Revisionaries but I am certain you will be more informed about the issue. Isn't that the true value of programs like Independent Lens?
There are many ways you can view PBS programs on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and/or Mac. One of the best is to visit their website http://www.pbs.org/. Or if you prefer you can install the PBS app from the Apple App Store. I usually choose to view programming from the site because more programming is available there. Either way, it watching online provides quality programming on demand. Anytime. Anywhere. All I need is an Internet connection.
Give it a try. Watch The Revisionaries on iPhone Life and see if it doesn't inspire you. Perhaps we can prove Einstein wrong?
This issue may be a good one to use in engaging your students in higher order thinking! See The Mobile Learning Studio to learn more.
BTW, this isn't limited to just Apple users. PC and Android users can access PBS Online too!
You will find your favorite documentaries at PBS Online. Be sure to watch The American Experience's latest series entitled The Abolitionists to learn more about American History.
You can take your favorite PBS programs with you wherever you go when you watch on your iOS device.
