WILL-TV Ready To Learn Award Will Support Early Childhood Learning

Additional funding from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and PBS will help WILL-TV work with several community partners to extend resources to help families support early math and literacy for kids in Champaign County.  In September, the staff of Children's Services learned that The UFL will be one of the partners that will receive training on how to use Ready to Learn (RTL) multiplatform content, which is designed to engage children in math and literacy activities.  The RTL Initiative uses multiplatform media and other learning tools, such as hands-on activities, games, mobile apps, and television programs.

You can read about the Ready to Learn Award in the August edition of Patterns magazine (page 20).
