Louisiana Public Broadcasting wins grant for Educational programming
Louisiana Public Broadcasting has won a federal grant totaling $113,000 to share its educational programming focused on literacy and math with children at three Head Start locations and three public schools, all in north Baton Rouge.
LPB’s educational staff and volunteers will work to train parents and teachers in using digital-media learning applications related to PBS Kids programming, through the use of computers, I-Pads, I phones and other newer technology platforms, according to LPB President Beth Courtney.
This is not simply a promotional activity for a television show,” Courtney said. “This is actual learning taking place that can be measured, quantified and integrated into early childhood.
