Technology skills can be acquired early through play.
Now, with its new app, a Dutch startup is supporting an important area of education in schools.
The goal: to make reading attractive for children and young people.
Being able to read isn’t just important, it also promotes concentration, reduces stress, develops language skills and fosters our sense of imagination.
Teachers create class-specific online libraries which can be accessed by students. Anyone who reads a book posts a short video comment in the app.
As well as highlighting readers’ progress, these vlogs promote the idea of a common reading experience and are a great source of fun.
In the Republic of Congo, meanwhile, affordable ‘digital libraries’ are already providing potentially life-changing knowledge.
