107 Indiana Libraries to Unveil New AWE Computers
Congratulations to the 107 Indiana libraries that took advantage of the multi-state group special for both the Early Literacy Station™ and AfterSchool Edge™. These libraries also received an additional $499 per unit subsidy from the Indiana State Library, which brought the net cost down to just $2,000 per unit.
The Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) is a dynamic all-in-one digital learning solution for early learners, ages 2-8. It is available in English and Bilingual Spanish. The AfterSchool Edge™ is designed for students 6-12 years old. The educational programs, which are correlated to Common Core and state standards, span all seven curricular areas. The educational titles are pre-loaded on the computer as part of a complete solution that features engaging graphics, intuitive menus, usage tracking, and administrative functions. No Internet connection is required to use either of these products.
