  • Reading Rainbow Kickstarter

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...-child-everywh

    "Of course, when Reading Rainbow began in 1983, we were using television to bring books to kids, meeting them where they wanted to be. In 2014, TV is not that place anymore. Now, we’re trying to reach a new generation of digital natives.

    That’s why, two years ago, I launched the Reading Rainbow App for tablets. Building on the basics of the television series, we put hundreds of quality books – and educational video field trips – right in a child’s hands.

    But despite this progress, there are big challenges left to face.

    First, not all families have access to tablets. Our goal is to cultivate a love of reading in all children, not just those that have tablets. To reach kids everywhere, we need to be everywhere: we need to be on the web, on mobile devices, on game consoles and on connected televisions.

    Second, a resounding number of teachers have told me that they want Reading Rainbow in their classrooms, where they know it can make a difference. We will provide it, along with the tools that teachers need, including teacher guides, leveling, and dashboards. And with your help, we'll provide it to thousands of disadvantaged classrooms for FREE."

      I would send in some money if Gates mCfadden would read "Failure is not an Option" to me.

                They fixed him in the last STTNG movie(s) He hasn't needed the visor for the last 10 years at least.

                  On a somewhat related note, TNG Season 8 on twitter is hilarious.

                  Picard suspects a terraforming company is instigating planetary wars. Data & Geordi have to spray a dolphin every 30 minutes or it'll die.
                  Riker infiltrates a saboteur cult in the Neutral Zone. Worf demands an honorable death when the crew learns his middle name is Ashley.
                  Troi's secret agent past catches up with her. It's clear to the rest of the crew that Geordi & Data are hiding a panda in their quarters.

                          oh, well that solves that. maybe it's better late than never that they got around to closing that Reading Rainbow plot hole.
