The WNET Group partnered with NYC's Department of Education to expand early learning education series Let’s Learn, and greenlit the second season of Camp TV with 28 nationwide content partners from locations like South Dakota and Denver, to institutions like Memphis Zoo and the National Dance Institute. Both productions were a unique use of public media to support and sustain learning, especially for children with limited access to broadband.
130 New Episodes;
80 Public Media Stations
New episodes of Let’s Learn were streamed with English and Spanish captions. Through a distribution partnership with the National Educational Telecommunications Association (NETA), 80 public media stations across the country began to carry Let’s Learn in December 2020.
Time Out New York recognized Let’s Learn as a “Lockdown Legend” in their New York Time In Awards which celebrated the people, organizations and institutions that “made homebound lives bearable” during the pandemic.
A+ in "Educational Value"
Common Sense Media reviewed Camp TV with high remarks, noting, “This series offers unique learning opportunities from presenters with different kinds of teaching styles and subject matter. Kids (and even some parents) will learn a lot from this well-rounded series.”
Bedtime Math, Education Through Music, Memphis Zoo, New Victory Theater, New York Botanical Garden, New York Public Library, Salvadori Center, National Dance Institute and others shared with kids dance performances, animals, botanical gardens and more.
This is an absolutely amazing program. My child (entering 1st grade) has been watching these since they began in 2020, and he has learned so much. I credit this program with teaching him to read.– Let's Learn Viewer & Parent, New York
