Idaho Public Television Pilots Distance Learning Initiative

Apr 20, 2020


K-12 public school students and parents are navigating uncertain territory these days with schools still closed around Idaho. Depending on the district, schools might be better or worse equipped to teach students online. 

But now there’s a return to an older technology for teaching students: television. Idaho Public Television launched a new initiative today called “Classroom Idaho: Learn at Home.” 


Our Morning Edition host George Prentice talked with IPTV general manager Ron Pisaneschi and teacher ambassador Kari Wardle to learn more. 


As COVID-19 cases spread through the U.S. and Idaho, we’re committed to keeping you updated and informed. You can get updated info on cases, closures and how to stay healthy at any time on our Coronavirus news blog.
