Learning at Home While Under-Connected and How Public Media Can Help
Learning at Home While Under-Connected: Lower-Income Families During the COVID-19 Pandemic follows up on 2016's Opportunity for All? Technology and Learning in Lower-Income Families, to uncover the perspectives of lower-income parents with children ages 3 to 13.

In March and April 2021, researchers Victoria Rideout and Vikki Katz led a national survey of more than 1,000 parents. The report delves into the experiences that these families had while many children were learning at home during a time when many school buildings were closed. It provides timely, pointed, and thought-provoking insights on the challenges of being under-connected when trying to support young students at home without adequate devices and internet connections.

From the earliest days of the pandemic, public media organizations around the country mobilized to address the needs of their communities. This panel will explore the local public media stations can play in diagnosing community needs and sharing learning resources for all children and families.

Confirmed speakers include Vikki Katz, Lisa Guernsey (New America), Debra Sanchez (Corporation for Public Broadcasting), Georgeann Herbert (Detroit Public Television), and Jamie Myers (PBS SoCAL) . A brief Q&A will follow the panel and presentation, and we invite you to prepare any questions you may want to discuss.
