Square Panda learning playset for tablets

Techstination feature for Friday, January 27, 2017

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.   Kids and tablets seem to go together like peanut butter and jelly.   In fact, don’t be surprised to find peanut butter or jelly on the tablet screen.    But there is good that can come out of that attraction.   Square Panda has designed an electronic playset for tablets that can give kids a real boost in learning to read.   Starting at the age of two.   CEO Andy Butler…

“The earlier you start with this process called phonemic awareness…which just means the ability to associate abstract patterns with letter sounds and then forming words, the earlier you start, the faster those connections in the brain get made and the more likely the child is to become a proficient reader.”

Square Panda initially worked only on iOS but Android is coming soon.    The Playset which connects to tablets via Bluetooth, sells for 119 dollars.  You can find us at Techstination.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin
