Ready To Learn Projects

RTL 2015-2020 Initiative
WFSU Public Media has been a proud Ready To Learn (RTL) station since the program’s inception two decades ago. Joining just a small group of other PBS stations around the United State, we pilot PBS RTL resources to establish best practices with content that can be used in all sorts of learning environments.

Through the Ready To Learn (RTL) Initiative, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), PBS, and local PBS stations provide free, evidence-based educational resources that help teachers, caregivers and parents build early science and literacy skills for America’s children, especially those from low-income communities. This U.S. Department of Education-funded initiative introduces children to key STEM concepts early, which better prepares them for school and boosts their long-term education opportunities.

To address this need, PBS and CPB have partnered to develop media-rich, multi-platform media in the form of videos, games and apps and hands-on activities by show, targeting students ages 2-8. For more information, please visit: https://www.cpb.org/ready-to-learn and https://florida.pbslearningmedia.org/collection/rtl2015

As we progress through the grant, new content will become available including The Cat in The Hat Knows a Lot About That! and Ready Jet Go! In addition, two new properties are being piloted and they focus on literacy and science, so stay tuned!
