This term Die Sterreweg is taking on a very exciting new venture. We have partnered with Leap to Know, to pilot their pre-literacy learning application (app).
This app, which is available in English, Afrikaans and Swahili (soon to be available in Setswana and Sepedi), works offline on android devices. As the child plays they move between various levels with the help of stories and interactive activities. On each level they learn basic building block concepts such as colours, numbers, shapes and letters. These concepts are the essential foundation to learning.
We have been fortunate to have had 2 tablets loaded with the Leap to know software donated to Die Sterreweg. Over the next 3 months we will be testing the learning app on our children to see what possibilities it holds for unlocking the potential of children with disabilities.
This week, 2 of our children have started playing and are already loving it.
