Amsterdam (PRWEB) January 11, 2013
Winning the prestigious KAPi Award “Best Younger Children’s App 2013” confirms what Boreaal Publishers has known for some time: its LetterSchool app fills a significant need for high-quality educational apps for young children. The KAPi Awards were presented on January 10, 2013 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES®). This is the cherry atop an impressive stack of awards and accolades the app has received in its first year. In the past few weeks LetterSchool has appeared on several “best of 2012” lists, and earlier in 2012 the app was crowned “Best Educational Game” in the Best App Ever Awards, “Best Educational App” and “Best Mobile App for Homeschoolers” in the About.com Reader’s Choice Awards and “Editor's Choice Award” in the Children's Technology Review—and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Everyone is impressed by the game’s innovative approach to handwriting instruction, its outstanding quality and its high replay value. A non-exhaustive list of the app’s awards and experts’ reviews is available at LetterSchool.com.
Collaboratively organized and produced by Living in Digital Times and Children’s Technology Review, the fourth annual KAPi Kids at Play Awards honor the best of the best in children’s technology. This year’s KAPi Award winners were selected from a pool of 712 apps, video games, toys and other commercial digital products designed for children, as well as individuals who have made their mark in the world of children’s tech. Of the 10 awards, only two went to apps—one of them LetterSchool. The KAPi Awards panel of judges consisted of 13 journalists and experts in children’s interactive media.
LetterSchool has already been introduced into many homes, schools and therapy practices all over the world. The game’s greatest achievement is that it creates a very stimulating learning environment, offering children a truly compelling gaming experience. The wide variety of entertaining games captures the attention and keeps players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. By doing so, children are practicing the complicated art of handwriting without even noticing it’s difficult. That is the likely source of the app’s success with not only children but also parents, teachers and therapists. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and the most frequent comment is a desire for the sequel. The continuous highly positive response underscores LetterSchool’s important role as an innovator in handwriting instruction.
