LPB partners with the Louisiana Department of Education to launch “At-Home Learning”


Louisiana Public Broadcasting (LPB) officially launched “At-Home Learning” in partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education (LDE) to help teachers, parents and students make at home time more educational and productive amid coronavirus closures.

According to LPB, the site offers free videos, apps and games for children, LPB’s broadcast schedules, the free Bright by Text parenting tip messaging service, access to LPB LearningMedia and Discovery Education for educators, and links to award-winning PBS Digital Studios videos like “Crash Course,” “Deep Look,” “It’s OK to Be Smart.”

LPB will also dedicate weekday programming between noon and 5 p.m. to educational programs designed in collaboration with LDE and national kids partners.

LPB’s main LPB-HD channel will continue children’s programming from 5 a.m. to noon.

Children’s programming will still be available 24/7 on the LPB2 PBS KIDS channel.

Information will be provided for educators from LDE about grade level assignments and resources.
