The Impact of America’s Largest Classroom on Learning

Full Description: 

This report highlights three recent investigations into how PBS content influences learning, the effectiveness of PBS content in improving student achievement, and the readiness of PBS to connect with the next generation of educators and learners. The second section of the report presents results from an impact study conducted by EDC (led by PI Babette Moeller) that examined the impact of PBS LearningMedia content on student performance when integrated into curricula. Our study found significant increases in student achievement and deeper learning across four subject areas; significant gains in students' critical thinking skills; and significant shifts in teachers' practice.
