Ohio Learns 360

Home » Kids/Education » Ohio Learns 360

Ohio’s PBS stations, through a partnership with the Ohio Department of Education, are working with families and out-of-school time programs to address disruptions to learning caused during the COVID-19 pandemic. WBGU-PBS is excited to be part of this initiative!

Called Ohio Learns 360, this new initiative will provide families and out-of-school time professionals with PBS resources including standards-based curriculum and materials, virtual field trips, interactive video programs and community events. All are designed to accelerate student learning and support learners in kindergarten through fifth grade.

Closing The Learning Gap – Register

Educators, administrators and parents worked tirelessly to keep students engaged over the past two-and-a-half school years. And now we are discovering larger-than-normal gaps in learning. How will schools close these learning gaps and what can parents do to help?

Camp-in-a-Box Training

Camp-in-a-Box trainings are free professional development trainings for after-school professionals. Each after-school teacher who attends will receive a large box that includes FREE resources for a week-long camp, including books, PBS videos, a standards-based curriculum, and materials for hands-on activities! Trainings will be offered starting in October. Contact Kelly Pheneger at for more information.
