This past weekend at the 2015 American Library Association (ALA) Annual Conference we launched a major expansion to our ABCmouse for LibrariesTM product, which gives children visiting public libraries free access to ABCmouse Early Learning Academy—the leading and most comprehensive online early learning resource for children ages 2–7+. The enhanced product now includes support for iPad and Android tablets, an all-new 1st grade curriculum that will include thousands of new learning activities, and added tools to improve librarians’ and patrons’ experience using ABCmouse. The already popular ABCmouse for Libraries will now help more young children learn, and better strengthen the library-school-home connection.
At our ALA conference booth, award-winning science author and Age of Learning Science Advisor Steve Tomecek demonstrated the new ABCmouse for Libraries features and content to a large and enthusiastic audience of librarians. Steve shared some of the new learning activities and culminated with a simple hands-on science activity that got the crowd engaged.
