At-Home Learning: Where Children Matter
KPBS Distance Learning
San Diego County Office of Education, San Diego Unified School District and KPBS are collaborating to make at-home learning options available for educators, parents, and students. The partnership includes a broadcast component with standards-aligned programming in blocks by grade level and a digital component with access to an online library of free educational resources.
The initiative has two components:
- Broadcast - Beginning Monday, March 16, KPBS 2 will broadcast 12 hours of programming selected to meet the TK-12 California educational standards. The programming will be from 6a - 6p in blocks by grade level, TK-3; 4-8 and 9-12.
- Digital - California students and educators have immediate access to an online library of free educational resources from PBS LearningMedia, including videos, associated lesson plans, hosted training sessions and self-guided how-to resources for teachers, that accompany PBS’s trusted programs and align with current classroom standards. The URL is ca.PBSlearningmedia.org.
KPBS will air 12 hours of programming on KPBS 2 beginning Monday, March 16. End date is unknown because of the evolving situation. We will work in concert with school closures.
The programming will preempt normal KPBS 2 programming from 6a - 6p. The schedule is in blocks by grade level:
6 a.m. - 8 a.m. - Grades: TK-3
8 a.m. - 1 p.m. - Grades: 4-8
1 p.m. - 6 p.m. - Grades: 9-12
A copy of the schedule will be provided to SDCOE and SD Unified by Monday morning, March 16.
KQED holds 15-minute educator and parent trainings twice a day at 7:30am and 3:30pm regarding how to use PBSLearningMedia.org. We will direct our audience to these trainings.
