With more and more research showing the importance of proper education in the formative years of adolescence, early education providers have focused on increasing the technology used in their classrooms. High schools and universities rely on technology-driven curriculums, so why shouldn’t early education providers, as well?
KinderReader is one such offering that wants to bring pre-schools and similar education providers into the tech age. Through the device-based program, students aged four to seven will learn to read through 80 lessons. KinderReader will utilize assessment tools and communication platforms for teachers and parents to monitor a child’s development and remain on the same page. The device will also be programmable for foreign languages, like Spanish and Chinese, for secondary language education or international distribution.
All-in-one devices that leverage the communicative and analytical power of today’s technology for educational purposes are not unique. SMART Boards and other devices and software have contributed to higher education over the past decade. It is only recently that this approach to education has translated to early education.
As companies use data mining to better tailor their products or services to their customers, early educational tools should benefit from the same approach. With the biggest opportunity for mental development occurring in the preschool years, it makes sense for the education community to focus their technology into providing the best service possible. KinderReader addresses this need through their comprehensive solution.
KinderReader was a showcased startup at our Tech Cocktail Kansas City mixer.
