Early Learning Environment
The Early Learning Environment™, playfully referred to as Ele (pronounced Ellie), is the latest innovation at the Fred Rogers Center. Ele is a web-based support system in early language literacy and media literacy for underserved and under-resourced teachers, home-based providers, and families of children birth to age 5. Ele will advance early learning and literacy through digital media content and social networking. Just as Fred Rogers pioneered his distinctive approach to tapping the educational potential of television as the breakthrough communications technology of his day, Ele builds on his legacy by demonstrating the unique capability of today’s communications and digital media to enhance learning for adults and young children alike.
