Florida PBS Learning Media
Florida’s public broadcasting stations have launched Florida PBS Learning Media. 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.
PBS Learning Media currently deploys more than 14,000 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 tagged by subject and grade level, aligned to 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 an 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 Archieves and the Library of Congress.
All public television stations in Florida are working collaboratively on this project.
