A new show on Maine’s public TV network is aiming to help remote learners, especially those who don’t have access to the internet, while schools around the state remain closed.
“The Learning Space,” which premiered Monday on Maine Public, will feature teachers from around the state giving lessons for third-, fourth- and fifth-graders in a variety of subjects. It’s a partnership between the network, the Maine Department of Education, and Educate Maine. The project is made possible by support from Dead River Company, FAME, John T. Gorman Foundation, Kennebunk Savings, Maine Community Foundation, MEA, and UMA with help from these valued partners:
One of the show’s goals is to provide learning opportunities for some of the 30,000 or more Maine students who do not have access to their schools’ remote learning programs because of problems accessing broadband internet, said Mark Vogelzang, Maine Public’s president and chief executive officer.
