iLookOut is a multi-media, online learning program that prepares childcare providers (CCPs) to meet their professional, ethical, and legal responsibilities as mandated reporters of suspected child abuse.
Using an interactive video-based storyline, iLookOut engages learners through real-life scenarios that raise concern about possible child abuse. As events unfold through video and narrative, interactive learning activities help CCPs acquire and operationalize knowledge that can help protect real children from harm.
Data show that iLookOut increases knowledge, changes attitudes, and is well accepted by CCPs.
