A Note from WNED PBS

A note from our friends at WNED PBS:

In response to area school closings due to the novel coronavirus, Buffalo Toronto Public Media will begin broadcasting a “Learn at Home” schedule to support families, educators, and students on Monday, March 23. The new schedule, available at wned.org/learnathome, will air from 6 am to 6 pm on WNED PBS KIDS. WNED PBS KIDS is available from most WNY cable providers and over the air at 17.3 using a digital antenna. (The live stream of PBS KIDS from the app an on the website will not use the new schedule.)

“Education is at the core of our mission,” said Donald K. Boswell, President and CEO of Buffalo Toronto Public Media. “Families and schools can turn to their public broadcasting station for help providing young people with high quality learning opportunities while we navigate these unprecedented times.”

Blocks of time will be dedicated to different age groups. Early mornings are programmed for young learners (prek-grade 3); mid-mornings are for elementary age (grades 4-8), and afternoons are for high school students (grades 9-12). The first week showcases educational programming produced by PBS and public broadcasting stations nationwide, and subsequent weeks will include programming made by public broadcasting stations in New York State, including WNED PBS.

In addition, Buffalo Toronto Public Media has compiled educational programming, on-demand education video, online resources, and lesson plans on its website at wned.org/learnathome.
