Time is precious for families, so the CPB-PBS Ready To Learn Initiative has developed an innovative model to bring together kids and the caring adults in their lives for fun and engaging learning experiences: PBS KIDS Family & Community Learning (FCL). Inspired by the Family Creative Learning Model developed by Ricarose Roque, PhD, PBS KIDS FCL strives to better engage families with diverse curriculum areas (coding, physical science) through digital content (apps, videos) and hands on learning. Attendees will be introduced to the FCL model before participating in a rapid ideation and prototyping of their own FCL series that can be used to address the myriad learning needs of families. The workshop will close with a guided discussion on how to meaningfully engage kids and adults together in playful learning and how the Connected Learning model can be used to develop FCLs with local partners to support community learning goals. This session will be moderated by engagement staff from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, PBS, and PBS SoCal, who have been deeply engaged in the development, testing, iteration, and distribution of the PBS KIDS FCL model at the local and national levels.
