Learning At Home

  • slidebg1

WQLN recognizes that children, families and teachers are eager to continue learning together during these uncertain times. Using a wealth of resources, WQLN can create a bridge to distance learning opportunities and engaging experiences while we are all staying safe at home.

WQLN Homeroom brings learning to life by airing lessons from several local school districts on WQLN PBS 54.1 Monday through Friday from 8am until 11:30am. These 30-minute lessons are geared toward students from preschool through 6th grade.

WHAT IS DATACASTING?
What is Datacasting?

While broadcasting refers to sending programming “over-the-air” across a geographic region that can be picked up by an antenna and played on a television, datacasting refers to using those same signals to securely transmit data that can be used by a computer. If a home can receive a television signal, it can also receive the data signal.
