On the 8th day of Christmas, theAsianparent gave to me…
A Pen-Pal Whizz!
Pen-Pal elevates traditional learning methods by using digital technology to create a wonderful learning experience for your child. It turns conventional printed material into interactive pages that can emit responsive voices or sounds of any languages.
It is not only a unique educational tool for kids but is interactive and fun as well. When a child uses Pen-Pal to tap on a book, a pre-loaded audio file is activated and spoken by a pre-recorded voice inside. This arouses the curiosity of the child, enabling a new learning experience through sense of touch, sight, hearing and cognitive thinking.
What are the benefits of Pen-Pal?
- Pen-Pal provides an interactive dimension to reading. In addition to holding a physical book, the child is also able to engage in visual and audio learning too.
- If a child is unsure about the meaning of anything, they can tap on characters and illustrations in the book to interact with it to develop their contextual understanding.
- With just the pen-pal and books, Learning can happen anywhere and anytime.
- Individual and group learning is possible
- Pen-pals can be customized to read any book in any language.
- Children are able to learn at their own pace, repeating the content whenever they like
- With additional audio element, children are less likely to be distracted by other external factors.
- Embedded games within the books will keep children engaged while reading.
Why use Pen-Pal?
Usually a child needs an adult’s assistance to read a book. With the Pen-Pal a child can listen to a narration of a book by themselves and at their own pace. This learning through sight and sound is also called multimodal learning, which studies have shown to be more effective than unimodal learning.
