Stuff.co.nz about Junior Learning: Playful advance in toy market
What they say: “Kiwi educational games company Junior Learning is making a play in the highly competitive US toy market, aiming to become the “next Fisher-Price” for children aged three to seven.
As US schools move increasingly towards teaching children via digital media (the LA school district recently purchased iPads for every student), the Auckland company’s husband and wife team, Anna Kirschberg and Dr Duncan Milne, have plans to dominate the emerging educational tech market.
While there is a plethora of teaching apps on the market, Junior Learning is carving itself a niche with Touchtronic Letters, a game that blends technology with traditional tactile reading and writing learning letters.”
Touchtronic Letters are a physical product (3D plastic letters) which is recognized by a touch screen.
Touchtronic Letters have a growing portfolio of iPad games to facilitate Literacy learning for young kids. We are proud to participate in the project from the moment of its inception and drive the technical aspects of it.
