PBS KIDS Playful Learning for Educators: In this webinar, you will learn and play together using digital and non-digital tools. Time is provided for educators to construct and share their own understanding of how the teaching strategies and PBS KIDS resources support children’s learning and development. The goal is to empower educators with the tools, skills, and confidence to bring similar media-rich, play-based, and learner-centered experiences into their own environments and communities. Educators will leave each session with new digital resources from PBS KIDS and an action plan for how they will put their learning into practice. This professional learning opportunity is designed for educators of children ages 3-8
