Mobile Education Resources: NPT
Nashville Public Television is developing a mobile lab to bring public media educational resources to children and families in the Nashville metropolitan area. Persistent educational gaps have led the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce to recommend a dramatic intervention for all students reading below grade level, and the local school district has responded with a new literacy initiative in partnership with Nashville Public Television. NPT's mobile lab includes tablet computers, headsets and related technology accessories, and offers a space for children, parents and the community to explore, learn and engage with educational content and resources from public media. The station is implementing the lab in partnership with local schools, the local housing authority, libraries and family service organizations.
