A new tech tool developed at the CMU Create Lab is now in all Pittsburgh Public School preschool programs, and it’s helping kids connect outside the classroom. The program, called Message from Me, uses an iPad to help kids connect directly with their family and friends while they’re at preschool. Since the kids can’t read yet, programmers created a way for them to do it on their own.
The CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University has developed an app that is enabling area preschoolers to digitally share their days with loved ones at home.
Several school districts in the Ohio Valley recently welcomed a new app that allows students to connect with their families throughout the day. The “Message from Me” app fosters an excitement for education and builds a stronger connection between home and school.
