In response to area school closings due to the coronavirus, WXXI-TV will begin broadcasting a “Learn At Home” schedule in support of families, educators, and students.
This new schedule, posted at WXXI.org/tv/schedules, will air from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays beginning Monday, March 23rd. WXXI Kids 24/7 channel will remain the same with PBS KIDS favorites for the youngest viewers.
WXXI’s Education team has also pulled together resources in support of this effort, which will be shared on WXXI.org/education and on WXXI Kids, WXXI Education, and WXXI Rochester social media channels. These resources include videos and activities for educators and families, as well as a link to PBS LearningMedia’s free online service.
WXXI’s Education Department delivers educational services to the community through educational programming, Ready To Learn, resources to preK-12, adult education and out of school learning organizations, on-demand educational video, online resources, social media offerings for parents and educators, informal family learning events, youth media film festival, in-person outreach initiatives and local educational productions.
Professional development offerings includes training workshops for educators, caregivers and parents offered by WXXI education staff.
