Upcoming changes to some Ready To Learn programs will focus on creating Community Collaboratives for Early Learning & Media to enhance community relationships and transform educational programming, using the PBS Kids Family Creative Learning model. This model, a learning format originally developed at MIT, involves a series of sessions that engage families in project-based creative learning. Designed for families with kids ages 5-8 (and younger/older siblings), the sessions use creative play and exploration to introduce kids and grown-ups to digital and tangible tools that can be used to develop science and engineering knowledge, practices, and perspectives. Through child-led projects, the sessions aim to foster collaboration, communication, and problem-solving skills among family members while empowering them to explore, create, and express themselves with media and technology.

We will share more information about the availability of these sessions, soon as it becomes available. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please contact us at: education@prairiepublic.org.
