At-Home Learning Resources During the COVID-19 PandemicAt-Home Learning Resources During the COVID-19 Pandemic

KQED is offering an at-home learning response to school closures for all children and youth in California. This response includes a new educational schedule for broadcast on KQED Plus in the Bay Area as well as free corresponding digital learning media and activities for at-home learning. KQED is also providing  support for teachers and parents in navigating this new learning landscape throughout the state. These At-Home Learning educational resources are made possible through an unprecedented collaboration between KQED and PBS SoCal/KCET in Southern California.

Educational Programming on KQED Plus

KQED is broadcasting a California state standards-aligned educational television schedule, created by PBS SoCal/KCET and the Los Angeles Unified School District. This TV schedule was developed to help schools and districts bridge the digital divide and provide equitable access to learning for all students at home, regardless of access to internet or computers. Educational programming aligned with state standards runs each weekday starting Monday, March 16, on KQED Plus. The programming is time blocked for different ages and grade levels: TK-3rd grade from 6:00 - 8:00 am, 4th-8th grades from 8:00 am - 1:00 pm, and 9th-12grades from 1:00 pm - 6:00 pm.

Digital Learning Resources for PreK-12

To help teachers rapidly adapt, KQED has developed collections of free digital learning resources that can be used with these TV broadcasts or on their own.  These resources are hosted on PBS LearningMedia and include videos and lesson plans. All of our resources for teachers are collected in this post: How Teachers Can Navigate School Closures Due to the Coronavirus, which includes links to

  • PBS LearningMedia collections
  • TV programming and digital resource alignment by grade and subject
  • Teacher training webinars
  • Tips for getting started  with remote learning tools
