THE STORY:

RAR is working on developing and building out a digital RAR model to reach individual families where they are. RAR has enlisted the support of outside counsel to begin designing and creating the digital platform that will build on 15 years of validated success with the program on the ground. RAR must be diligent in its quest to incorporate innovative technologies that will have the greatest impact on children and families while maintaining program integrity. RAR continues to explore how a digital program extension will utilize best practices and research to provide parents with the tools needed to engage in digital co-viewing to create 21st century learners.

Our early focus is in curating and testing key digital elements through our affiliate model. The first test project is through the creation of an adapted summer program in key markets to be launched in summer 2015. Through this summer pilot, RAR will engage “RAR Alumni” to test the suite of hosted video and alternative print media. The goal is to determine the impact of combining digital enhancements with RAR’s core program on family literacy behaviors. The RAR summer pilot will be launched at Blue Library Bag events, which will take place at each of the participating sites. The primary components are; books for home libraries during kick-off event; parent training videos (in English or Spanish); high quality print materials (magazines sent home); site support; and evaluation.
