Every Hour Counts is an outreach partner for the Ready To Learn initiative–supported by the United States Department of Education, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and Public Broadcasting System (PBS)–which develops hands-on and engaging educational content proven to build math and literacy skills in young children, especially those living in poverty. In an effort to identify promising practices in the integration of CPB-PBS Ready To Learn transmedia resources in expanded learning programs, we conducted interviews and reviewed progress reports with staff from a selection of Ready To Learn demonstration stations. This brief offers guidance to local public media stations looking to enrich learning experiences for young people in their communities by building new partnerships with expanded learning programs, offering professional development, and sharing technology.
