Arizona PBS LearningMedia and PBS Kids

The COVID-19 crisis has resulted in the closure of many schools and has temporarily hindered in-person education for children all around the world.

Arizona PBS has deployed At Home Learning multimedia educational assets, including broadcast and online to help children and families who are experiencing disruptions to their learning. Arizona PBS is a department within the Cronkite School of Journalism, a community service of Arizona State University.
