    PBS to Broadcast Educational Content for Pre-K Through 12th Grade

    All nine public television stations in New York are providing “Learn-at-Home” enrichment for students through their broadcast stations and increased online educational resources.

    Pre-K and young learners can still watch familiar shows like Sesame Street. Elementary student broadcast schedules include trusted programs like Wild Kratts, Peg + Cat, and Cyberchase. Middle school and high school programming include shows like Nova, History Detectives, and Shakespeare Uncovered. As always, many additional programs are also available to stream on the free PBS Video and PBS KIDS Video apps.

    Since every PBS station in New York has multiple digital channels, programming will be available for young children (PreK to 4th Grade) and older children (5th to 12th Grade) on different digital channels. They can be viewed for free over-the-air with a television antenna or on cable.

    “PBS ensures that its content is not only engaging, but aligned to state and national learning standards, so parents can feel comfortable knowing it’s going to reinforce what has been taught,” said Rachel Friedman, a Suffolk County teacher. “I am so glad that PBS is providing this so quickly in this crisis.”

    Parents and educators should check local listings for their local public television stations for additional information on schedules and channel lineup. You can find your local PBS station by using the PBS Station Finder.

    Local stations will also provide more specific educational information and resources developed in conjunction with local school districts, BOCES, parents, and teachers.

    New York’s educators and parents can continue to access free educational resources that supplement and augment learning on the website, PBSLearningMedia.org.  PBS LearningMedia provides original digital content and supplemental viewing guides for on-air programming that assist in learning. New special collections have been created for each grade level to make it easy for parents and teachers to select appropriate content if they are new to using the service. Webinars and online support materials have already been taking place and will continue to help educators make use of PBS LearningMedia as a distance learning tool.
