National Geographic has launched a new Digital Hub, called [email protected], to give families and educators trying to fill the learning gap, an innovative way to enhance learning for kids and students. This digital hub, which is available for free, combines the educational resources of National Geographic Society with the informational aspects of National Geographic Kids which equals a hub that allows those exploring it to learn about many facets of the world. Some of the offerings include games and brain busters, as well as videos and live talks from National Geographic Explorers.
 
“National Geographic has a long-standing legacy of using the power of storytelling to make a difference,” said Gary Knell in a National Geographic press release, chairman of National Geographic Partners. “As we have watched this global pandemic unfold, we have felt compelled to do just that- make a difference through the science-based journalism and content development for which we are so well known. We developed [email protected] to support and inspire some of the heroes that have emerged from this crisis—parents and teachers—even if school is not in session. Working in tandem with our partners at the National Geographic Society and Disney gives us the ability to deliver the full scope of our brand to homes all over the world.”
 
[email protected] also offers access to National Geographic Society’s Learn at Home portal and advice from experts is given to families trying to get through the trying times, such as National Geographic’s reporting on the virus.
 
"To support educators and families, we’ve curated K-12 resources designed to spark curiosity, engage learners, and ignite the spirit of exploration by bringing the wonder of the world to students," said Dr. Vicki Phillips in the same press release, executive vice president and chief education officer at the National Geographic Society.
 
This new hub is also a part of Disney’s #DisneyMagicMoments, which is a website where families experience content from all of Disney’s properties.
 
This hub, according to the National Geographic press release, was developed by education and science journalists.
 
"Juggling your work life and your kid's school life is hard enough. When those two worlds collide, as they have for so many families, it adds so many layers of challenges,” said Rachel Buchholz in the press release, editor in chief and vice president of National Geographic Kids. “That's why our goal here is to keep kids of all ages educated, entertained, and inspired, helping them become global stewards of the future.”
