ConheÇa o Apprendendo!
On December 9, Laboratório de Educação will release Apprendendo, a mobile app developed with technical assistance from IBM Brazil and through workshops at Ashoka’s Grow2Impact social business program. Divided between spaces inside and outside of the home, the app provides parents with simple suggestions on how to transform ordinary situations, whether at home or out and about, into meaningful learning opportunities for their children.
The activities are designed for children ages 1 through 10, but can be adapted to families with multiple children. Our content team will also periodically update Apprendendo with new activity spaces.
Given that a child’s learning process requires repeated opportunities to ponder and engage with their surroundings, our app emphasizes quality over quantity by giving adults the tools to integrate certain activities into the daily routine. That way, each moment can serve as an opportunity to learn something new!
App users can also create photo albums for a given activity in order to document their child’s learning trajectory as they make new discoveries.
Apprendendo will be available as a free download on Google Play and the App Store.
Laboratório de Educação is a non-governmental organization whose mission is to serve as a platform for the production of applicable knowledge, bridging research and practice to strengthen educational processes, both inside and outside of school.
We believe that student learning should be at the forefront of policy-making and of efforts to improve public education. For this reason, our goal is to contribute to creating the necessary conditions so that every child, every youth, every person can learn throughout their life.
The guidelines were created by a yearlong working group comprised of 10 international leaders, including Beatriz Cardoso, President of Laboratório de Educação.READ MORE
