With schools across Indiana closed in response to the COVID-19 virus, IPBS
member television stations and the Indiana Department of Education (DOE) have partnered to offer
at-home learning experiences for students in grades K-12 that align with Indiana curriculum
The eight IPBS television stations have published programming schedules and corresponding
curriculum resource materials focusing on math, science, social studies, literacy, and other subjects.
The curriculum resources from PBS LearningMedia are a free online service of thousands of
educational tools. Television program schedules have been augmented with information about
grade-level appropriateness, subject area focus, and learning objectives. Programming schedules
may be found by visiting the DOE website or by going to the website of the IPBS TV station
nearest you. IPBS TV stations are located in Bloomington, Evansville, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis,
Merrillville, Muncie, South Bend, and Vincennes.
The PBS LearningMedia resources were developed with the input of educators. They are
contextualized for educational use and align with Indiana curriculum standards. The resources
include grab-and-go activities, lesson plans, interactive lessons, and media that illustrate specific
topics or themes and support materials across subjects.
With offerings such as the PBS KIDS 24/7 channel, the WORLD Channel, and programs such as
NOVA and Into the Outdoors, IPBS member stations are committed to ensuring that their
educational programming and resources are widely accessible to students in Indiana.
