Just released: New interactive report on early childhood technology landscape and opportunities
We are excited to share our interactive report Enabling Smart Early Childhood Technology in Public Systems: Where We Are and What Comes Next.
The report explores the critical ways that technology can and should be used across early childhood settings to support high-quality adult-child interactions, enhance program and service operations, and streamline and coordinate systems level data.
With generous support from the Omidyar Network, we partnered with three leading early childhood organizations, Early Edge California, the Ounce of Prevention Fund, and Texans Care for Children, to examine current tech adoption and public funding in each organizations’ respective home state: California, Illinois, and Texas.
With this report, we aim to empower the growing number of early childhood technology entrepreneurs with a better understanding of the playing field and to give program implementers, government and systems leaders, and funders concrete strategies to better support tech adoption.
We hope our analysis spurs discussion and action around how we can leverage technology to strengthen our collective impact for young children and their families. In 2020, we will be hosting a conversation about our findings and where we go from here along with our report partners. Please stay tuned for a webinar invitation after the start of the new year.
