US Spanish-language TV network HITN has been named a finalist for the 2017 Kids Imagination Awards for its educational app, dubbed Pocoyo PlaySet: Let’s Move.

pocoyo 16 aug 2017Pocoyo PlaySet: Let’s Move is part of HITN Learning division’s suite of products that help pre-schoolers develop English-language skills needed for a successful start in kindergarten. It hones pre-schoolers’ learning abilities through body movements and pedagogical games and activities, while encouraging kids to be physically active, following Pocoyo’s lead. They also build fluency in spoken English and expand their English vocabulary learning words, while sharpening their listening skills and ability to follow directions.”

The app is a creation of the Early Learning Collaborative (ELC), and was brought to life through the Pocoyo characters, beloved preschool characters in the Spanish-speaking world, and through the support of a $30 million Ready-to-Learn grant funded by the US Department of Education.

“We have collaborated with the industry’s best partners to develop this application, and are grateful that the judges were impressed with the richness and power of the learning experiences in the Pocoyo PlaySet: Let’s Move app,” said David Rust, GM for HITN Learning. “These integrated suites of educational resources have been proven effective through studies and pilot implementations in US and Puerto Rico.”
