Mochilas Digitales Para Niños

El equipo de educación de PBS SoCal ha diseñado mochilas digitales para las familias con materiales educativos y actividades para niños en un formato fácil de descargar, y que pueden acceder más tarde. Las actividades compartidas en la mochila son divertidas, educativas, fáciles de implementar, y requieren materiales comúnmente encontrados en casa. Los materiales también son útiles para los educadores que buscan compartir recursos con sus familias. Cada mochila digital tiene un tema central diferente, como la ciencia y el aprendizaje social-emocional.

Como las familias pasan más tiempo en casa que nunca debido a la pandemia, queremos hacer que el aprendizaje en casa sea divertido, interesante y fácil de incorporar en sus rutinas diarias. Nuestras mochilas ayudan tanto a los educadores como a los padres a crear oportunidades que apoyen una "experiencia escolar" en casa. Sobre todo, queremos que las familias se den cuenta de que la oportunidad de participar en un aprendizaje de alta calidad está a nuestro alrededor y esperamos empoderar a los padres para que busquen oportunidades de aprendizaje dentro de nuestra mochila y más allá.
