The Game Creators today released EduGuru Maths – the first in a series of Apps specifically aimed at the Educational Games market.
EduGuru is a series of educational apps, developed and built to fully support the UK National Curriculum. EduGuru Maths for 3-5 year olds was released today and EduGuru English, Science and Art Apps for 3-5 year olds will be available shortly.
Lee Bamber, CEO of The Game Creators said today, “EduGuru Apps are all designed and built to help children learn outside of the classroom, stimulate their imagination and make learning an open-ended fun activity. Further apps for 5-7, 7-9 and 9-11 age groups are now in development and will all closely follow and support the four key UK national curriculum subjects of Maths, English, Science & Technology and Art & Music.”
EduGuru has been designed in close collaboration with teachers and schools, and follows and fully supports the UK National Curriculum. Cute and basic animations guide children through the key topics in the Early Years Foundation Stage, which sets the standards for the learning, development and care of pre-school children in England; the Foundation Phase in Wales; and the Early Years Foundation in Scotland.
The 8 games in EduGuru Maths cover the key curriculum mathematical concepts and skills including:
· Counting 1-10-20 (Cosmic Counting, Meadow Maths)
· Number recognition and ordering (Cosmic Counting)
· Addition and subtraction (Meadow Maths)
· Matching, doubling, halving and sharing (Space Solver)
· UK/English coins, money and values (Money Pig)
· Minutes and hours (Captain Clock)
· Telling the time (Captain Clock)
· Patterns, shapes and sequences (Cosmic Counting, Shape Sort, Shape Up)
· Colours (Shape Sort, Shape Up)
· Size, weight, distance and position (Fishing Fun, Shape Up)
EduGuru’s Apps contain no third party links or advertising so allow children to learn and explore in a safe and secure environment, and importantly, as children progress through the games, they are rewarded, and motivated to continue learning, with trophies and medals. This means that parents can be sure that children playing EduGuru Apps are experiencing, and practising, learning skills in accordance with the recommendations of early childhood experts.
Lee Bamber, CEO of The Game Creators, said, “We are building on the expertise and knowledge we gained in producing the highly successful Fun School, Art Attack and Klik n Play in the 90’s. Whilst the technology now makes games much more readily accessible, the fundamentals of learning while you play remain and are an important part of the mix in a child’s education.”
