327 Common Core Aligned Playlists from MentorMob & LearnZillion

MentorMob and LearnZillion have teamed up to create a comprehensive collection of Common Core aligned learning playlists perfect for providing students with easy access to guided learning experiences. Currently there are 327 Common Core aligned playlists ready and available for free on the MentorMob site.




MentorMob playlists are displayed in a step-by-step format that allow users to interact with live web content right on the page, keeping students on track without getting lost in a stream of open tabs and new pages. As students progress through a playlist at their own pace, MentorMob keeps track of completed steps. Flexibility to move within a playlist is provided by a preview that's always accessible on the side of the screen, allowing users to jump to different steps as needed for  reteaching and challenge.

The newly added LearnZillion Common Core aligned lessons focus on the use of narrated video for instruction. The pause button allows students to tackle the learning at their own pace, while built in learning supports make this an instructional tool that addresses a variety of learning needs. A Coach's Commentary on the side of each playlists provides teachers with additional information and support. Most of the math lessons provide guided practice opportunities and some of these playlists are also available in spanish. 


Here are a few playlists to test drive.

  • Try the Flipped Classroom by assigning learning playlists as homework and applying the learning during class time.
  • Use playlists as a resource for parents to provide them with the tools needed to support students at home.
  • Publish playlists on a website, blog or wiki for easy access, 24/7.

Coming Soon!
MentorMob Beta will be organizing all of the Common Core Content into one place in the months to come. In the meantime, perhaps the easiest way to find the playlists you need is to click on the link below and then use the drop-down menu to sort by alphabetical order.

  1. This is a perfect example of beginning to break down the artificial wall that's been put up between formal and informal learning--Common Core aligned work that students can complete outside of class for free!

  2. I love seeing the artificial wall that's been built between formal and informal learning beginning to come down. Now kids can learn from a Common Core aligned lesson on their own, outside of class, for free!
