This immersive learning project continued the already established Families for Forward Thinking: Partnering with Parents in the 21st Century (FFT) program that began spring semester of 2016 with Wee Wisdom Nursery School and Child Care Center in Muncie, IN. In the continuation of this project, the students generated additional ways to build school, parent, and student relations through technology. They educated Wee Wisdom staff in current technology resources including the use of iPads in the classroom. Furthermore, students created an audio series for the Wee Wisdom online parent resource center. They interviewed community members and early childhood experts in the Digital Corps recording studio. Finally, Wee Wisdom parents were invited to an evening of training focused on internet safety guidelines for young children and introducing Wee Wisdom new Technology Initiative.
