Soon we’ll be adding a new Music Room that will feature streaming music from PBS KIDS TV series. While some music videos are already available in the TV Room, such as from Super Why, music requires far less bandwidth and many of the songs we’ll be releasing are unavailable as video clips. Kids will simply click an icon on the virtual MP3 player, shown below, and a song will start playing. We will launch with about 20 to 25 tracks and expand from there.
Why music? It’s been shown in studies spanning the past several decades to improve memory and retention of new concepts. Our videos will feature important topics such as social-emotional development and nutrition. Stay tuned for more information coming soon!
