EDC will serve as a sub-award, with WGBH as the prime, for an Innovations in Development project for "Aha! Island: Digital Media and Parent/Child Engagement Resources to Increase Preschool Computational Thinking". As a research partner, EDC will collaborate with WGBH on a design-based research process with children and their parents. Moving through cycles of implementation, observation, analysis, and revision over the course of three years, EDC will work closely with families and WGBH's development team to determine how children learn the fundamentals of CT, how certain learning tasks can demonstrate what children understand, how to stimulate interest in hands-on activities, and the necessary scaffolds to support parental involvement in the development of children's CT.
