KAMU and PBS are helping support educators, parents and caregivers with a variety of free high-quality, accessible educational media resources. The PBS KIDS 24/7 channel (for young learners ages 2-8) and At-Home Learning Service (for learners grades 6-12) are available to more than 97 percent of the country through over-the-air television access, featuring broadcast programming linked to at-home learning resources that can be used by educators to supplement distance learning plans, or by parents to provide added enrichment and support for children’s educational needs. Full episodes, clips, games and more educational tools for kids 2-8 can be accessed via pbskids.org and the PBS KIDS Video App.
Many in our communities lack access to fast and reliable broadband internet. PBS has the ability to reach a majority of these households with free, over-the-air station broadcast and a deep trove of digital resources (PBS LearningMedia, pbskids.org, PBS KIDS for Parents and more) designed to support both in-school and at-home learning for students, which was critical at the end of the 2019-20 school year.
