Northwest AEA has licensed TrueFLIX for its schools beginning November 1. TrueFLIX is an online product from Scholastic that pairs short non-fiction videos with related non-fiction books. The license is for simultaneous access, meaning many may view the same video or read the same ebook title at the same time. All the ebooks have the read-aloud feature.

Your students can access TrueFLIX anywhere there is an Internet connection –at school and at home! The username and password used to access TrueFLIX will be the same one currently used to access Iowa AEA Online resources. The URL is: http://trueflix.scholastic.com  You can also access TrueFLIX from Northwest AEA’s web page by following this path: Programs and Services >>>Media and Technology>>>Northwest AEA Online Resources.

TrueFLIX is targeted for students in grades three through five, but all PreK-12 students will have access. Special education teachers may find this a valuable resource. Please share this information with teachers and students in your school or building. If you have questions, please contact Pam Buysman, educational media consultant/instructional coach at Northwest AEA.
