SmartKids, the 'Netflix' of learning apps

SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 13, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- SmartKids is the newest Yogome release, which will revolutionize the world of educational applications for children. The application was designed to facilitate parents involvement with child's learning through an enjoyable experience.

Navigation in the platform is one of the most important features of this new interface. Parents can browse categories easily, select from more than 1000 mini games, and create custom playlists with targeted topics and activities. They will maximize their children learning experience through challenges in complicated topics.

Children will be able to discover new games based on their playing history, and if they like a game, they can highlight their favorites to have direct access anytime. Likewise, they will be able to customize and collect characters, spaceships, hats, stars and more rewards to increase motivation. Along these new features, SmartKids allows users to replay already completed games without an internet connection.

Educational value in SmartKids is based on a global curriculum with 8 subjects for children ages 4 to 11, which includes: Mathematics, Science, Coding, Language, Sustainability, Health, Geography and Creativity. The app is available in 4 languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese and Chinese. With only 20 minutes a day, SmartKids wll improve your child's development from Kindergarten to 5th grade.

Manolo Diaz, Yogome co-founder, stated, "When talking with parents, we found a main concern: How can I help my child academically? Our answer is this application. Parents will be more involved in their child's learning. Also, they will be able to practice their knowledge and experience what their children play daily to support them actively."

SmartKids is connected to the Yogome Dashboard to track a child's progress, usage history, and more. This tool will help parents to create successful learning strategies by focusing in their child's challenges.

A recent study by the Play2Prevent Lab, at Yale University, showed that, after playing with Yogome games, 8 out of 10 children increase their motivation for learning. More than 70% of children improved their academic skills. The study also showed that the benefits of the games are higher for students with lower achievements.
