Next Generation Preschool Math

Work continues with our Next Generation Preschool Math project, It’s a 4-year, $3.5m research project for which WGBH (in partnership with research scientists from the Center on Children and Technology at EDC and SRI International) is designing a blended learning suite with eight iPad apps for preschool math learning. The apps will be complemented by non-digital materials designed to integrate with the rhythms and spaces that make a preschool classroom tick – learning centers, snack time, circle time, and playground time.

The NGPM team is Christine, Jillian, Dan, Kevin, Jolin, Bharat, Caz, Frank, Chi-Yun, Jeff, Mary, Sonja, & Ayelet.
