about the innovation

Free Video Library for Educators

Rick Steves Classroom Europe™ is a free online resource for teachers and students that is packed with more than 400 video clips curated from Rick Steves' Europe TV episodes. Teachers can search the video database, select any number of short clips, and build playlists to enhance their lesson plans. It's fast, fun, easy…and totally free.

For Rick Steves Classroom Europe, Rick personally selected his most teachable moments. These short video clips (mostly three to five minutes) cover a vast range of topics: From touring the ancient Roman Forum to learning why people in Barcelona speak Catalan, to visiting a vibrant market in the south of France, to pondering why pilgrims trek 30 days across northern Spain to Santiago de Compostela. This ad-free site contains hundreds of such short and engaging clips.

Rick says, "I appreciate the passion teachers have for inspiring their students to learn. This project is a joy for me to offer and my small way of saying thank you."

 All are welcome to visit — and enjoy!
