LITTLE SMART PLANET

little-smart-planet-1-638After school it is difficult to sit your kid in front of the workbook, isn’t it? What if they could use your (so desirable) tablet, to review their lessons? Wouldn’t be a win-win situation? Little Smart Planet has been designed to help kids practice the key subjects in school: Maths and Language (English and Spanish available), while parents keep a track of the progress. Developed according to the Spanish Education regulations, Little Smart Planet follows the rhythm of the class avoiding frustration when facing new exercises.

Tablets are not parent’s enemies, they could be a powerful ally in children’s learning making homework more engaging and equally valuable. And, let’s face it: Haven’t you abandoned paper books for eReaders?

GOMINS

Gomins_SpaceshipWe all know our kid’s grades in school but, what about socialization? Are they feeling ok? Do they have problems interacting with other kids? Expressing their opinions? Nervous? Shy? Sad? How  do they handle frustration? Sometimes kids behave in a different way inside and outside their homes. But how can parents track that without waiting for the tutor to call?

Gomins helps parents follow their kid’s emotional intelligence development through games. While kids have fun with Gomins’ activities, parents and teachers can follow their performance through a tracking platform and be aware of any problem. Gomin helps parents detect the issue and suggests possible activities to handle it. But the last step is in parent’s hands! These activities or ‘missions’ are real-world activities, designed to make families work together. Gomins is not a tool to teach kids emotional intelligence, is a tool to guide parents to help their children grow happy and healthy. Because no one said being a parent was easy!
