PBS Kids Digital Series OH NOAH! Launches video games to introduce kids to Spanish
The PBS KIDS digital series OH NOAH! is expanding its offerings with new animated videos and games that introduce Spanish in an entertaining way. The app launched on April 30 – a day to honor and celebrate children known as “El Día de los Niños” – new OH NOAH! content will include an immersive language learning game, “Lost and Found,” and a new 11-minute video, “Making a Splash.” In addition, starting on April 30 all OH NOAH! content will be accessible on mobile and tablet devices via pbskids.org/noah. “Many parents are looking for tools to help their kids learn a second language, and research shows that developing a second language at a young age can have significant cognitive benefits; PBS KIDS is excited to offer families new content from OH NOAH! to help meet this need,”
said Lesli Rotenberg, General Manager, Children’s Media, PBS. “Digital properties like OH NOAH! are among PBS KIDS’ many resources that further our commitment to helping children learn and grow through curriculum-based media across platforms.” WNET is partnering with a variety of organizations to extend the reach of OH NOAH!. Through a new partnership, the national steward organization for “El Día de los Niños,” the National Latino Children’s Institute, will help leverage OH NOAH! content in key communities across the country at events on April 30. And, as part of a partnership with the National Council of La Raza, OH NOAH! will participate in NCLR’s Annual Conference and National Latino Family Expo in Kansas City July 11-14.
