Construct
The product provides three different sets for different aged learners. The content is made personal for each and every child by putting child's own character to the stories and materials. That will create an emotional engagement with the product and aims to keep the child interested throughout the learning experience.
Linear
Non-linear/Creative
PlayKids Explorer promotes free exploration of the content. The story gives an outline and a theme for the package but it is up to the child and the family to decide what and when they want to read and play.
Individual
Collaborative
The learning process is individual for each child/family and it's not meant to compete or compare anything with other learners. Especially with children who are not able to read on their own yet, the PlayKids Explorer is meant to be used together with a parent.
