What is Thinkfinity?
Thinkfinity is the cornerstone of Verizon Foundation's Literacy, Education and Technology initiatives. This free, comprehensive digital learning platform is built upon the merger of two highly-acclaimed programs well-known to educators Verizon MarcoPolo and the Thinkfinity Literacy Network. Thinkfinity is designed to improve learning in traditional settings and beyond the classroom by providing high-caliber content and professional development needed to improve student achievement anytime, anywhere, at no cost. The Thinkfinity.org comprehensive website contains thousands of educational resources, including standards-based, grade-specific, K-12 lesson plans, student interactive tools, and reference materials, all searchable by content area, grade level, standards, or partner organization.

All of Thinkfinity.org's 55,000 standards-based K-12 lesson plans, student materials, interactive tools and reference materials are reviewed by the nation's leading education organizations to ensure that content is accurate, up-to-date, unbiased and appropriate for students.
At Thinkfinity.org, you'll find primary source materials, interactive student resources and grade-specific research lists to help you tailor materials to meet your needs. Start exploring now!
Thinkfinity has developed a powerful search engine that allows educators to search Thinkfinity content based using a variety of factors, such as grade level, discipline, standards, and key word.
A comprehensive professional development program prepares educators to incorporate Thinkfinity's rich resources into their instructional settings for maximum impact. In New Hampshire, we will integrate Thinkfinity professional development into our NH e-Learning for Educators program, which offers online professional development courses for our NH educators through OPEN NH project (www.opennh.org). OPEN NH online facilitators and other interested NH educators will become Thinkfinity field trainers and will be available to deliver training and professional development in the use of the free Thinkfinity resources across the state. If you are interested in becoming a New Hampshire Thinkfinity field trainer, please contact the NH Thinkfinity Training Coordinator at the Office of Educational Technology. Thinkifinity also offers free onine webinars and online Thinkfinity training. Read more -->
