“WJCT” (a Florida public media partnership) delivers at-home
learning online resources and a new television schedule of educational
programming for First Coast Teachers and Families.
As many schools and districts across Florida shift to online and at-home
learning in an effort to lessen the spread of COVID-19, WJCT Public Media, in
partnership with public media organizations across the state, has launched a
new, weekday television schedule of educational programs aligned with state
standards. The new programming begins
Monday, March 30, 2020 at 11 a.m. on TV Channel 7.1 (Comcast 8 and 440). WJCT will also offer a suite of free digital
learning resources accessible from home. The service has been developed over the past
two weeks in consultation with educators, including Duval County Public
“These school closures bring challenges for parents and teachers in keeping
students engaged and learning,” says WJCT President and CEO, David McGowan.
“We are really pleased to be able to
create this service and to restructure our educational offerings in ways that
make them most useful to educators, parents, and children as we all confront
schools being closed. As Jacksonville’s
public media organization, we have education in our DNA, so this is a natural
way for us to help make a bad situation a little bit better.”
WJCT will dedicate its daytime weekday schedule on channel 7.1 (Comcast 8 and
440) to Florida standards-aligned educational programming. The new schedule, airing from 11 a.m. to 6
p.m., follows WJCT’s current block of programming for early learners (PreK
through third grade) from 6 to 11 a.m., and includes specific blocks of time
for high school content (11 a.m. to 3 p.m.) and middle school content (3 to 6
p.m.). These new blocks will cover
topics such as English language arts, social studies, science and math. Programs can be incorporated into lesson plans
for teachers, while providing parents and caregivers with quality, educational
content to supplement their child’s academic studies. More information on the schedule and available
resources can be found HERE.
Each week’s program schedule will be shared with teachers across the First
Coast, who can follow up with discussion questions, worksheets or hands-on
projects and experiments when they communicate with their students. Resources will also be integrated into the Duval
County Public Schools’ Parent Academy.
“Duval County Public Schools’ Parent Academy, a free family resource
traditionally offering face-to-face classes, has now moved to virtual courses,
and soon can add television to our educational offerings,” said Regan
Copeland, Parent Academy Supervisor with Duval County Public Schools. “We are thrilled to have this opportunity to
partner with WJCT in providing our families with additional enrichment
opportunities as a supplement to our Homeroom environment.”
This new programming builds upon WJCT’s education-focused initiatives,
including the region’s pre-eminent professional development conference for
teachers (TEACH, scheduled for Saturday, November 7, 2020) the PBS Kids Writing
Contest, and additional resources available to educators and parents, such as:
Florida PBS Learning Media: WJCT and PBS have curated free,
standards-aligned videos, interactives, lesson plans and more for all Florida
educators. Collections include videos, lesson plans and activities, sorted by
grade level (PreK through high school), subject area and state standard.
WJCT Kids Connect Newsletter: WJCT’s new weekly e-newsletter provides
engaging educational activities every Monday morning, with fun family learning
ideas from sources such as PBS, The Fred Rogers Company and other local
educational community partners.
WJCT World: Effective March 30, 2020, the public media WORLD Channel
(WJCT 7.4, Comcast 212) will provide a five-hour At-Home Learning Service for
students in grades 6-12 every weekday. Programs will highlight topics such as
science, history and English language arts.
Support for Teachers: Through PBS LearningMedia, teachers can access
webinars from PBS master trainers and educators about how to create engaging
and effective distance learning plans.
WJCT-TV (Comcast 8 and 440): WJCT’s main PBS channel will continue
broadcasting standards-aligned programs like: Nova, SciGirls, History
Detectives, American Masters, Breakthrough: The Ideas That Changed The World and
Africa’s Great Civilizations weekdays from 11 a.m. through 6 p.m.
Many public media organizations across the country are providing enhanced
at-home learning resources and revised programming schedules in response to the
widespread school closures which have resulted from the Coronavirus pandemic. More information on those initiatives can be
The Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens has
decided to postpone its reopening, which was previously planned for April 4,
Out of an abundance of caution and in the best interest of its members,
visitors, volunteers and team, the Museum will stay closed to the public until
further notice. The Museum will continue
to monitor the situation. Plans for the
Museum’s reopening will be shared once government and health officials deem it
is safe and appropriate.
During this period of closure, members of the community are invited to explore
the many digital resources the Cummer has to offer, including: a resource guide, a guide to art making at home, downloadable coloring sheets, and an online gallery of works from the Museum’s permanent collection. The Chef’s Garden Catering and Events, the
business that operates the Cummer Café, is offering meal delivery
services and virtual cooking classes.
