Florida PBS LearningMedia
Florida’s public broadcasting stations have launched Florida PBS LearningMedia. The free and innovative digital education service developed to support curriculum-based teaching and learning from pre-K through college. In addition to providing unprecedented access to a comprehensive library of high quality programming resources from PBS and other public media producers, this next-generation platform features open source technologies that enable customization to curriculum needs at classroom, school district and state education agency levels.
All public television stations in Florida are working collaboratively on this project through FPBS.
Here's an example of how learning media helps kids absorb knowledge in a way that sticks:
PBS LearningMedia currently deploys more than 100,000 digital learning objects selected by teams of content experts, curriculum specialists and classroom teachers to address the challenges and opportunities of education in the 21st century. Resources are aligned to Florida, national and Common Core standards, and presented within hierarchies of commonly taught topical areas. The content collection features video footage, audio clips, interactive, photographs, animations, interviews and graphics derived from such television programs as NOVA, PSB NewsHour and Between the Lions, as well as rich-media content from trusted sources as NPR, the National Archives and the Library of Congress.
