Dr. Michael Robb, A02, has been working at the Fred Rogers Center to develop the online community Early Learning Environment (Ele). Ele is one of the only digital media resources created for children from birth to five years old. Using Ele, early educators and those who care for young children can find online and mobile educational activities especially designed for adults to share with children. Ele helps teachers and family members find different kinds of media to “learn about helping children improve their language and reading skills.” Dr. Robb says that “talking is teaching” and that their goal is to have people view media the same way they would view a book: as a way to spend time with and talk with a child.
