CDC Watch Me! Learning Tool

As an early care and education provider, you play a critical role in the health and wellbeing of children. You are also very well positioned to help identify children who might need extra help in their development. This FREE, online training course, Watch Me! Celebrating Milestones and Sharing Concerns, helps you fulfill this role by providing tools and best practices for monitoring the development of children in your care and talking about it with their parents.

We’re proud to announce that our recent work with the CDC has launched! A few months ago we were presented with a challenging opportunity. The goal was to create an engaging, interactive experience aimed at educating early care providers about important developmental markers for children. The result: Watch Me! Celebrating Milestones and Sharing Concerns

The amount of information we needed to integrate was massive. We ended up splitting it into 4 distinct learning modules, each with its own quiz to test how much you learned.

In addition to segmenting it out into more user-friendly chunks, we knew we had to make it interactive to keep the user engaged. Videos and large imagery were just the start, though. To make the user feel like they were truly involved, we used their scrolling as a way to activate certain elements. Scrolling up or down kicks off some subtle animations and really draws the user in.
