Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Channel- The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

MULTICAST DIGITAL CHANNEL-On the Spot was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas, now in its seventh successful season of national syndication. Last year, the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers released the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Channel- Lazy Town promotes fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world." The lead character, Stephanie, guides the audience through the story. She and her best friends, a group of "human" puppets reside in Lazy Town, where her uncle is the Mayor Milford Meanswell. The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Multicast Digital Channel-The New Adventures of Nanoboy is an action-comedy about a boy who transforms into the world's smallest superhero to fight microscopic villains too small for the naked eye! In the micro-cosmos, the tiny world of cells, molecules and atoms, a battle of good versus evil rages as each week Nanoboy, tinier than the average cell, takes on bad-to-the-bone-bacteria-while trying to survive the biggest challenge of all - being a 10-year-old! Each episode takes place in two worlds: In the human world Oscar tries to live the life of a normal 9 year old, always keeping his identity as Nanoboy a secret, Oscar solves conflicts like peer pressure, and exam stress. In the micro-cosmos, Oscar/Nanoboy encounters bigger-than-life problems-Deranged proteins and Amazonian Amoebas, and with the help of his Nano-team reforms a flu virus and a goofy brain cell. In resolving these crimes in the micro-world, Nanoboy encounters solutions that he can bring back to solve human world problems. On an episode by episode basis, Oscar, in the role of his alterego, Nanoboy, harnesses and uses the power of science and technology to save his world from the meanest and ugliest villains around. In doing so, he teaches target viewers the elements of science and enticingly demonstrates how knowledge can be used to solve difficult problems and meet important aims. This learning becomes all the more impactful because young viewers can readily relate to Oscar. He's bright and fun-loving, and like all kids, he's not perfect. Oscar is small for his age, athletically challenged, and perhaps even a bit nerdy. But when Oscar and his friends are faced with peril, Oscar magically transforms from "everykid" into amazing Nanoboy. Through observation, viewers gain the motivation to use learning, knowledge, and action to transform themselves to meet challenges in their own lives.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Channel -- AWESOME ADVENTURES is a syndicated adventure travel show for tweens and teens that highlights topics like sports, animals, and music. Accompanied by host Anthony Montgomery (Star Trek: Enterprise), in each episode a pair of teens hike, bike, parasail, and even sometimes raft through exotic locales like Costa Rica, Iceland, and Belize. Using these beautiful countries as a backdrop, Awesome Adventures educates viewers about geography, zoology, history, and world culture through fun action-adventure segments. The overall tone of the show is very light and quite silly at times, but that's usually due to Montgomery's goofball antics. Kids who are interested in traveling and learning about new cultures will also enjoy the show's focus on world culture. Whether it's food, music, customs, or local entertainment, Montgomery and his guests will be there to explain the wonders of each country they visit.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Main Digital Channel In each episode, Tom (live-acted) comes out of his house's back door, puts on a power belt, and runs across his lawn into a woodland. In there is the tree with Treetopolis on, protected by a magic shield. Using the power belt he jumps up, shrinks to insect size as he flies into the tree, and enters the world of Treetopolis, where he has adventures. He is skilled in that world's magic, and often gets characters out of scrapes. The tree's sap is shown as a glowing orange magic liquid. Sometimes he has to call on "the big world" for magical help: he tells the audience to make particular magical moves and then say particular words to "send the magic to me". The magic is shown as orange stuff appearing from around the camera and flying at Tom, who collects it in his arms in a ball, and uses it for whatever he needs it for. The movements which the audience are called on to make, are particularly beneficial for the development of children with dyspraxia. The scenario includes magical hoverboards (called "leafboards"). At the end he flies up, and out of the tree's magic field, reverts to full human boy size, lands, runs out of the wood and across his back lawn, jumping over a bicycle lying on the lawn, and in through his back door. The series' two main voice actors each previously played major roles in Doctor Who; Sophie Aldred (who voices the animated Tom) as Seventh Doctor companion Ace and David Tennant (who voices Twigs) as the Tenth Doctor. The actor who plays Tom in the live action opening and closing sections of the show, Adam Henderson, is Sophie Aldred's son. The series was developed in conjunction with the Dyspraxia Foundation with the aim of promoting movement. Foundation specialists Sally Payne and Dr Lydia Foulder-Hughes worked with the series creators to develop the movements Tree Fu Tom uses to create magic. Five percent of children have dyspraxia, and these movements are similar to those used by occupational therapists to help child development. It is also hoped that the spells will help get exercise into the lives of young children.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. MULTICAST DIGITAL CHANNEL-On the Spot was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas, now in its seventh successful season of national syndication. Last year, the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers released the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.
