March 10, 2016 Case Study: Using Early Learning Technology to Prepare Head Start Families for Kindergarten

1 Billion and Counting

I am delighted to share my thoughts about a major milestone that we recently celebrated at Age of Learning, when a five-year-old boy in Tennessee completed a mathematics learning activity on called Ring It Up.

That’s a big number, but what’s most important is what it represents. Ever since we launched, our goal has been to help children learn. More specifically, we set out to “help children build a strong foundation for future academic success.” And our commitment to that goal is stronger than ever—we are hard at work expanding our curriculum and creating new ways to “Bring Learning to Life” for children throughout the U.S. and around the world.
