As part of our Ready to Learn initiative, PBS SoCaL Education is providing access to technology through our PBS SoCaL Mobile Lab. The Mobile Lab, equipped with 10 iPads and 10 Google Chrome books, will offer a space for children, parents and the community to explore, learn and engage with PBS KIDS content.
In the Mobile Lab, children and parents will be able to access an assortment of PBS KIDS apps, play STEM related online games in the PBS KIDS Lab, and explore hands on learning activities from their favorite shows.
The PBS KIDS Lab offers the latest and greatest online and mobile resources for parents and teachers. Based on the idea that every new technology is an opportunity for learning, the PBS KIDS Lab makes it easy for parents and children to use technology to create a transmedia experience at home with their smart phones, tablets, and other electronic devices. PBS SoCaL will showcase the Mobile Lab in schools, at events, libraries and with partners around Southern California. We’ll be training parents and teachers on how to access the resources at home and in school. From Martha Speaks and Cyberchase apps to Dinosaur Train online games, parents and teachers can help their kids learn basic vocabulary and literacy skills or science and math concepts with PBS.
Whether you are looking to have fun and find new ways to learn with PBS KIDS content, the Mobile Lab is committed to empowering the community with technology as part of the overall learning experience.
The project is funded by a Ready to Learn grant (PR/AWARD No. U295A 100025, CFDA No. 84.295A) provided by the Department of Education to the Corporation of Public Broadcasting.
