Educators can navigate resources in three ways:

  1. Through weekly thematic bundles with specific episodes highlighted per week by content area and age-level that are available to stream on-demand. These episodes connect to specific resources on PBS LearningMedia and PBS Parents.

  2. By using the Vermont PBS content to select related programs to Incorporate PBS guides to help pick and choose specific educational series that align with content focus and age-level overtime. The content can be accessed via VOD (Video on Demand or streaming) or on broadcast for those without suitable internet connection. Note: some may not be available on-demand.

  3. By using PBS LearningMedia and PBS programming to complement project-based work.
