In response to the need for at-home learning resources while Kentucky students are utilizing non-traditional instruction due to the COVID-19 outbreak, Kentucky Educational Television (KET) has created an online toolkit for families and educators. The toolkit provides families with free, high-quality educational resources for students at all grade levels.
Educators also can visit the site to find helpful tips for making learning from home successful and to be directed to the thousands of instructional resources available through PBS LearningMedia.
The easy-to-use instructional resources are grouped into collections for grades preK-3, 4-8 and 9-12:
- The collection for grades preK-3 features learning resources from PBS KIDS, including information on all the ways families can access the 24/7 KET PBS Kids channel on air and online. There’s also information on the many free apps and games that facilitate learning alongside each PBS Kids program. In addition, the collection provides resources for specific grade and subject levels.
- The collections for grades 4-8 and 9-12 include information and resources from PBS LearningMedia, a free repository of classroom resources used by Kentucky educators. KET is encouraging parents to also use this free resource, which organizes lessons, video clips and activities by grade level and subject area in an easy-to-use website that doesn’t require registration.
Visit KET’s website to access the online toolkit.
In addition, beginning March 30, the weekday program lineup that airs on the main KET channel from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET will be replaced with a special lineup containing programming specific to at-home learning for grades preK-3, 4-8 and 9-12. More information about thais schedule change will be announced later this week.
