Public media supports at-home learning
January 18, 2021
California educators are facing new and unprecedented challenges this school year, and public media stations across the state have teamed up to provide free, high-quality educational services to all regions. KQED, the California County Superintendents Educational Services Association, PBS SoCal and eight other public media stations have joined together to create the California Public Media Education Service.
Now, regardless of what geographical region they’re in, educators can take advantage of free digital resources and online events offered by public media from across the state, all collected in one, easy-to-navigate place.
The California Public Media Education Service puts the educational resources from multiple California public media stations all in one place for teachers to easily browse and use. The service is hosted on the PBS LearningMedia platform and features resources for all educators serving children from 2 years old through 12th grade. Additionally, KQED and partner stations are broadcasting educational television programs to help create a bridge to learning for those without reliable internet access at home.
Classroom teachers can access professional development, standards-aligned classroom resources and online events and training specifically geared toward distance learning and project-based learning.
Many of the resources focus on media literacy, civic engagement, student voice and media creation (for teachers and students). The service also includes a digital collection for home learning that teachers can share with their students’ families. Visit to browse the collection. School and district leaders looking for further support can contact KQED education staff at
