Articles Media


September was a BUSY month at Collaborative for Children!  Here’s a quick snapshot of what we’ve been up to in improving the lives of children in Houston.

Collaborative for Children: At the forefront of Education Technology!

Our team, driven by innovation, recently took an exciting trip to Peachtree Corners’ Curiosity Lab, just outside Atlanta, GA.

Curiosity Lab, a 5G-enabled living laboratory, is an epicenter for pioneering technology. In our pursuit of excellence, Collaborative for Children, in collaboration with our invaluable partner, T-Mobile, is at the forefront of integrating advanced technologies into early childhood education through our Centers of Excellence (COEs).

By sending our experts to Curiosity Lab, we immerse ourselves in an innovation hub where we engage with groundbreaking technologies that could soon influence and enhance learning experiences in early childhood education. These developments will create a world of opportunities for the youngest members of our community, opening doors to a lifetime of learning and success.

Here are just a few AMAZING innovations in technology:
