Parent Engagement App Hackathon


Over an intensive two-days in November 2016 WGBH welcomed parents, early childhood educators, librarians, pediatricians, designers, and developers to brainstorm apps that parents could use with their children. Working teams focused on apps for family health and wellness. Outcome ideas, included Lil Chef that involves children in cooking and mealtime prep, and, Arthur Out Loud that allows children to practice speaking aloud by themselves or with others using ARTHUR characters as their avatars.
