Transmedia Classroom

For teachers, capturing the attention of small children to teach them math and reading has always been a challenge. In today's technology-driven world the challenge is greater as they are being conditioned to process information from the many screens that surround them. WFSU-TV has partnered with Astoria Park Elementary to test PBS Kids Lab with increasingly advanced classroom equipment. Kindergarten teachers Atricia Goode and Kim Sherman use games featuring popular PBS Kids characters to reinforce their lesson plans. They have also reached out to parents to let them know that those many screens their children interact with can be filled with something beneficial to their child's development.

See the games for yourself!  Visit the PBS Kids Lab.
