A beautiful app for the littlies

Barefoot World Atlas If this is an example of what we really can achieve with apps when we want to – bring it on. I got my copy free from the app store at Apple because they are offering it  as part of their 5 year celebration. There is something special about this app and so it is a fitting celebratory app. Full price I believe it’s 4.99 but I’d pay that if I were teaching young children or had young children at home. From the moment it opens it is very visual. It has a spinning globe and you can navigate to or search for any place in the world. It offers real pictures as well as some good animations and cartoons. The content is clear and spoken clearly. It would be a good app for those learning English as well. I’d like to think, in time, it would be offered on different languages because it is a very good interactive learning app and the visual and kinetic appeal would make it very successful. I heard of it through the Language Resource Centres Daily, a paper.li well worth subscribing to if you are interested in languages and linguistic development. There is a review of it here on the abcnews site. The Barefoot Books site offers other information and then access to their other titles.
