Learning Goals

The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.

Kidly supports the active role of users: children get to influence their own reading progress by exploring different stories and by picking books they like. Kidly’s user interface is well-designed and suitable for the age group encouraging children to use Kidly. The stories are colourful and have interesting titles that inspire children to read further. The badges and characters are fun and can motivate kids to read more stories and keep using the app.
Learning happens through reading or listening stories. Children acquire new knowledge by immersing in the world of imagination. This is a lovely way to teach children about the world and about themselves. Learning can be seen as a byproduct of exploring interesting stories.
One of the biggest strengths of Kidly is that it gives users a lot of freedom. Children can pick the stories they like the best but Kidly also suggests new books based on the books you have read. Children are able to decide where, when, what and how often they read (with the parent’s permission). They can keep reading the stories they enjoy over and over again or find new interesting content. This is a nice way to motivate children develop good reading habits.
In Kidly, the learning process is fairly individual which suits the purpose. Children are allowed to create their own reading journeys. Because there is no interaction between other users, Kidly is very safe for children to use. From a parents’ point of view this is a big advantage.
