HITN Early Learning Collaborative


The Hispanic Information and Telecommunications Network Early Learning Collaborative (HITN/ELC) is funded through a federal Ready to Learn grant and designed to leverage the power of technology and transmedia content to help ensure three-to-five-year-old children are fully prepared to succeed in Kindergarten and beyond. The ELC is creating a wide range of digital and non-digital learning resources known as PlayGrounds to develop young children’s English language skills, support early literacy and promote emerging math skills. The ELC is creating and distributing educational outreach materials to enable parents, teachers, and caregivers to interact with the child around the PlayGround content. ELC believes that this interaction is crucial for purposeful and meaningful educational experiences. Having been proven effective through rigorous summative studies, the PlayGround materials are now in the hands of children, parents and teachers across the United States and in Puerto Rico.
