It’s an historic day for Detroit Public TV and for every public television station across our great state.
Teachers, parents and all caregivers now have a new partner in the education of our children
In cooperation with the state’s other public television stations, for the first time we will be making instructional content available to every home and school in Michigan, to enrich the lives and education of all our children.
In Southeast Michigan, the MLC will be broadcast starting Monday (January 4, 2021) on Channel 56.5. Public television stations across Michigan are expected to broadcast the Michigan Learning Channel within a few days.
At the same time, the channel – as well as a wealth of other education resources – is available at MichiganLearning.org. We have purposefully made the MLC accessible on an array of platforms, understanding the diverse needs and individual situations of educators, parents and students.
The Michigan Learning Channel has commissioned new lessons in math, social-emotional learning and health and fitness, all of which are available now. A team of literacy education professionals selected the English Language Arts (ELA) and English Language Learner (ELL) content being broadcast at launch and is hard at work on a series of new literacy programs featuring Michigan teachers, which will arrive by mid-March.
Sample some upcoming program for Pre-K to 3rd grade at MichiganLearning.org:
- Ages 3-8 (Let’s Learn from WNET)
- Kindergarten Math (from Math Mights)
- First Grade ELA (from Colorado Classroom)
- Second Grade ELL (from Colorado Classroom)
- Third Grade Math (From Math Mights)
In addition to the initial Pre-K to 3rd grade schedule, supplemental content will be available at launch for grades 4-12. Evening and overnight programming also will be available for older students in grades 6-12. Weekends will feature a variety of programming from Michigan sources in social studies and science, as well as documentaries with educational resources.
For all the details and to help you plan, check out the MLC’s January schedule.
From its earliest days, public television has been intrinsically linked to the education of children. We believe the Michigan Learning Channel is the next crucial step in our commitment to ensuring the right of all students to an education that prepares them for a meaningful, productive and happy life.
