The Ida Rupp Public Library and Erie Islands Library recently received a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the State of Ohio. This money is met by funding from the Friends of the Ida Rupp Public Library and enables the purchase of three AWE’s Early Literacy Stations.
AWE’s Early Literacy Stations are the premiere All-in-One digital learning center for children ages 2-10. They are designed to optimize educational effectiveness while making learning exciting. Content is multimedia and educational, and it has all been evaluated by early childhood specialists, educators and family focus groups using the latest developmental models.
The content is selected from the highest rated age-appropriate learning programs across seven curricular areas. The resulting combination of 50 superb software titles has been correlated to show how strongly it supports national and state educational standards.
The ELS has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Children simply touch the interactive screen and discover all of the exciting programs and activities. They don’t know they are learning because they are so busy having fun.
