Project AIM (Adding Interactive Media to Early Childhood Education) is an initiative aimed at showing parents, and teachers how to use the PBS Raising Readers and PBS Kids Island site to motivate young children to read. The emphasis on both sites is to weave interactive games and multimedia into teaching.
Through Project AIM, Raising Readers Games have been aligned to Georgia Pre-K Standards and Head Start Child Outcomes.
If you are interested in using the Raising Readers/PBS Kids Island site and need more specific information, please contact Meghan Welch email@example.com.

About Project AIM:
PROJECT AIM, funded by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, was successful in training teachers and parents across the state in how to use Raising Readers/PBS Kids Island – a site full of fun early literacy games for early childhood.
GPB Education, Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning, the Georgia Department of Education, and Georgia State University planned and implemented the project. During the project, AIM team members aligned the games featured on the Raising Readers and PBS Kids sites to Georgia Pre-K standards and Head Start standards.
Parents and teachers were trained on how to effectively use the multimedia resources.
