EdNC. Essential education news. Important stories. Your voice.


From our colleagues at PBS:

For Phase II of At-Home Learning, PBS North Carolina will collaborate with NC DPI and the Friday Institute to broadcast math and literacy-focused lessons and activities for students in Pre-K through third grade, as part of a new programing block, Classroom Connection 


Classroom Connection will feature PBS KIDS favorites alongside North Carolina educators. This short-form learning series will deliver engaging math and literacy lessons with North Carolina teachers, aimed at Pre-K through third grade students to support their at-home learning. The Classroom Connection programming block will be available over the air on PBS NC’s main channel beginning February 1 and streamed online at Lessons will also be made available on the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction Digital Teaching and Learning YouTube channel and the #GoOpenNC digital repository.  


Phase II will also include the launch of Teacher Time, a series of short-form STEM activities for early learners presented by North Carolina teachers. Teacher Time is supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund and will debut on UNC-TV and its Rootle PBS KIDS channel beginning this winter.
