At Home Learning

 

 

WETA, MPT and WHUT have announced a partnership to support the education needs of families whose children are learning from home during the coronavirus public health emergency.

The At-Home Learning initiative is a coordinated schedule of educational programs selected by the stations and available weekdays to viewers free over the air, through cable and satellite providers and, in the case of MPT, on a livestream at mpt.org/livestream.

The special broadcast schedule across the three stations consists of 11 daytime hours of educational programs, beginning at 7 a.m. on MPT and continuing throughout the day on all three channels, ending at 6 p.m. on WHUT. The weekly slate of programs is structured to supplement curriculums in three segments, specifically Early Learners (Pre-K through 3rd grade), Middle Grades (4th through 8th grades), and High School (9th through 12 grade).

The region’s At-Home Learning service will be continued until students in the greater Maryland, Northern Virginia, and the Washington, D.C. metro area have returned to their classrooms when the coronavirus distancing precautions are relaxed.
