The Paley Center's Education Department uses the collection in partnership with schools and other educational institutions to explore important themes and issues that have shaped contemporary history, as well as to develop and refine our audience's critical thinking and viewing skills. While the medium is television or radio, the subject may be advertising, animation, political campaigns, the Cold War, or many others.
