Education Through Exploration
- Tom Kalinske, Former CEO of Leapfrog, Mattel, & Sega
A severe lack of engagement in school is leading to 75% if kids being unprepared in the 4 core subjects: language, reading, math, and science. So we created LINK, a plush toy companion that teaches through exploration. This enables kids to use all of their senses while learning, creating more cognitive connections, making learning faster and retention stronger!
Lack of engagement is one of the largest problems kids face in school. That’s because it can happen in any educational setting. Whether kids go to a rich or poor, public or private school, or learn at home, they won’t be successful if they aren’t engaged. There is no such thing as an “auditory, visual, or kinesthetic” learner. Our brains rely heavily on all our senses to learn yet, traditional education and even modern educational apps deprive kids from using all their senses while learning.
LINK is a lovable plush toy companion doubling as a learning platform to teach language, reading, math, and science to kids in school or at home. It recognizes objects via hidden smart stickers and uses AI to create immersive, multi-sensory games like scavenger hunt, iSpy, and many others. PhD learning experts like Dr. Jeannette Vos and others, all agree explorative learning is one of the most effective ways to learn. Currently, LINK is capable of teaching language learning for kids up to 6 years of age. As we continue to develop new learning content, app updates will introduce new interactive learning to grow with a child, at his or her pace.
