Educational Media

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.

PBS Kids

PBS KIDS (Channel 12.3 in the Brazos Valley) offers anytime access to more than 20 series aligned to curriculum goals – from science and math to literacy and life lessons. Content is available on-air via our main PBS channel (12.1) and PBS KIDS (12.3), and livestreaming is offered on the PBS KIDS video app and pbskids.org. Related parent and teacher resources are also available.

PBS Learning Media

Through PBS LearningMedia, educators can find at-home learning resources connected to current broadcast programming, professional learning support, lesson planning kits and more in the PreK-12 Resources for New School Routines collection. Educator resources in Spanish are also available.

PBS Kids for Parents

Through PBS KIDS for Parents, parents can find tips, resources, printable materials, an Activity Finder and more tools for learning at home with young children, including a special virtual event: Prepping for a Very Different School Year.

When COVID-19 shut down schools across much of the country, PBS LearningMedia, an online destination that offers free access to thousands of classroom resources, saw its users quadruple to nearly 4 million per month. Additionally, young children’s engagement with PBS KIDS content increased. For kids ages 2-8, on-air reach grew by 15 percent, streaming by nearly 20 percent and game play by 40 percent.
