A new digital service is making it easier for K–12 students to access one of the most respected news sources in the world.
On Thursday, The New York Times announced an in-school digital subscription model for K–12 schools. The service allows students to access NYTimes.com through any device without logging in, if they connect through their school's network.
The news outlet began offering the digital model to select schools in the U.S. over the summer. The recent announcement opens the doors to the service worldwide.
“With this new in-school offering available at affordable rates, schools can access even more news, opinion and analysis from The New York Times on any device, in addition to the award-winning video, photography and infographics only available on NYTimes.com," said Yasmin Namini, senior vice president and chief consumer officer of the company, in a news release.
Subscribers to the service also can access The Times' archive. However, access is limited to articles published between 1851 and1922 and those from 1981 to the present. The release didn't disclose pricing options.
The publication’s website also features, The Learning Network, a blog with lesson plans for teachers. The blog incorporates content from The Times' articles in ways that can be applied to Common Core State Standards-aligned subject matter.
