Message from Me serves as a tool for young children to communicate with their families about their daily activities and learning experiences through the use of digital pictures and recorded audio messages. Message from Me aims to engage families in the educational experience and strengthen the home-school connection while enhancing a child’s communication skills, digital wellbeing, and promoting interaction.
While children are developing critical language and literacy skills at child care or in the classroom, they sometimes struggle to communicate what they did “at school” to the adults important to their lives. Message from Me serves as a platform to promote student voice while providing a developmentally appropriate and meaningful experience for children to explore open-ended digital technologies.
Message from Me is a collaboration between Trying Together and Carnegie Mellon University’s CREATE Lab, and is made possible by PNC Grow Up Great.
