WGBH has launched First 8 Studios at WGBH, a digital-first educational production team. The new unit uses original, iterative research to develop digital and tablet-based content and off-screen supplemental materials for preschoolers and early learners.
The unit’s content leverages the benefits of established and emerging technology and reinforces interactive and social learning.
As part of the launch, First 8 Studios at WGBH debuted Thursday its first Early Math with Gracie and Friends app in the Apple App Store.
“Gracie & Friends Birthday Café”, is the first of eight learning apps in the series to be released over the next several months.
WGBH Boston is America’s preeminent public broadcaster and producer of PBS content for TV and the Web.
