The mission of our early childhood literacy programs is to train adults through community-based workshops to regularly use and enhance the value of PBS television and on-line content with children ages 0-8; particularly those who may be at risk of educational failure because of poverty, geographic location, limited English proficiency, disability and/or community conditions.
School Workshops for parents
Presentations and trainings are scheduled on an as needed basis in schools for APS Title 1 Parent Involvement, Pre-K and Even Start programs. We have conducted workshops in Kit Carson, Carlos Rey, Edward Gonzales, Atrisco, Los Padillas Elementary.
What is PBS KIDS Lab?
PBS KIDS is always working on something new—and usually several “somethings” at once! Whether it’s new apps focusing on math or an augmented reality game using camera phones, you’ll be able to find the latest and greatest right here at PBS KIDS Lab. This is where we debut our newest games—including some that are in development in beta testing mode—and show early research results, behind-the-scenes features, and more. Be among the very first to see what’s new with beloved characters like Curious George, the Cat in the Hat, Buddy from Dinosaur Train, Sid the Science Kid and more.
The PBS KIDS Lab is built on the belief that every new technology is an opportunity for learning. We work closely with researchers and advisers every step of the way, from building curriculum frameworks to ensure that all of our content aligns to state and national standards, to testing early prototypes with kids. We also spend a lot of time with parents and educators, learning more about the devices that are available at homes and in schools, what supplemental resources work best, and how we can make learning fun for the whole family.
Powered by a Ready To Learn Grant -The New Mexico PBS Ready To Learn Service provided PBS Camp staff with iPads along with other resources to support the use of quality PBSKids Transmedia content for Out of School Time Learning. Summer camp learning and fun with media was had by all!
The Ready To Learn initiative is a cooperative agreement of the U.S. Department of Education, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB), PBS, and the Ready To Learn Partnership (RTLP). PBS member public television stations nationwide are important partners in the Ready To Learn initiative.
