New York, NY (PRWEB) October 15, 2013
Kid Toc®, an Ed-Tech (Educational Technology) start-up founded by a group of children along with a seasoned entrepreneur, is a revolutionary new online method of learning English. This week, the company announced the launch of its free Read-Along video portal.
With more students enrolling in online courses, the Internet has become a viable way for people to learn English. According to Internet World Statistics there is over 565 million English users on the Internet, a large market for English learning products like Kid Toc ®.
Children are also utilizing digital tools when studying various subjects. This especially applies to learning English, the world’s most common communication platform. According to the British Council “Speakers of English as a second language probably outnumber those who speak it as a first language.”
As a leader in peer-to-peer learning and winner of the 2013 TED award, Professor Sugata Mitra’s experimental "Hole in the Wall" project demonstrates, “even in the absence of any direct input from a teacher, an environment that stimulates curiosity can cause learning through self-instruction and peer-shared knowledge.” This type of environment is exactly what Kid Toc ® provides - kids learning from each other - making it easier to focus and learn.

“Being a teacher and speaking four languages, I found Kid Toc® to be such an easy and entertaining way for kids to learn a language. It’s a completely new concept compared to the traditional ways of teaching, and I just love it! Kid Toc® retains the children’s attention, which is usually the hardest thing to do when trying to teach a language. What I enjoyed most about Kid Toc® were the lessons! They are so easy to follow and have been designed like a game, so that kids can enjoy while they learn. I recommend it!”
-Angela Funes, Professor - Junta De Andalucia – Government of Spain
Spanning over two decades in private business and holding an MBA and Psychology degree, co-founder Jasmine Basha has created an entirely new business product in a demanding marketplace. However, none of it would have been possible without the 5 kids who are also co-founders of the company. They have provided critical guidance and relevant feedback on children’s user experience and story content.
The founding team claims their biggest difference compared to other English learning products is the absence of adults on their website! There are only kids. You only see and hear the kid teachers throughout the entire program – in each video, lesson, answer and question. This revolutionary approach is unique to Kid Toc®.
“Kid Toc® works for kids because it’s made by kids for kids. We know exactly what kids want, because we are kids.” - Julia – Kid Toc®.
Kid Toc® launched its complete program this year and has had an outpouring of positive response. They are currently working on an early learners app for toddlers called ‘Kiddie Toc’. Watch for Kid Toc®, as they continue to impress the ever-growing language learning marketplace.
Whether you are a child or adult native English speaker or learning English as a Second Language (ESL), Kid Toc® makes learning English easy and fun - the natural way.
