On January 9, our Office of Early Childhood Development (ECD) partnered with ACF Offices and the U.S. Department of Education (ED) for the annual ED Games Expo 2020, now in its seventh year. Our partnership resulted in the first-ever Showcase on Early Childhood Development and Learning within the Expo. About 100 federal, national, state, and local leaders in early childhood, education, health and human services joined ACF leadership and 11 thought leaders and entrepreneurs who presented a series of Big Idea talks about innovation and how to scale-up good ideas. This Showcase was one part of a multi-day event sponsored by ED’s Institute of Education Science which focused on games and technology targeted at children, parents, educators, funders, and other stakeholders with more than 1000 people attending.
