By Dr. Tammy Lynn Woody Interim Dean, School of Education at American Public University A colleague recently brought it to my attention that there is a national “digital learning day” in March. Intrigued, I visited the website to learn more about this event and how it came into existence. As the interim Dean of the APU School of Education, I’m always on the lookout for free resources that could be used by our faculty and candidates as they prepare to work with K-12 students.

And now, online preschool classes. Really.

It was only a matter of time. Online school classes for toddlers and preschoolers are here.

VINCI Education is offering what it calls a “groundbreaking virtual school” for youngsters, which was featured by by Dr. Gadget, the nationally recognized TV and radio personality, on CBS’s “The Talk” late last month.

VINCI Education, according to its Web site,”is a pioneer in providing Blended Learning Curriculum, Assessment Tools and Data Analytics for the Early Childhood Education.” It operates preschools and day-care centers in Los Angeles, Ottawa and Beijing, which use technology and blended learning strategies to, the Web site says, “strengthen the main developmental areas of a child’s mind.” The company won the CODiE 2014 award (given by the software industry) for Best Game-Based Curriculum.
