Put the World in Children’s Hands

One Globe Kids lets students meet new friends online or on their iPad or iPhone. The free Globe Smart Education app presents memorable daily-life stories from youth around the world to help children in kindergarten through grade 5 gain cultural understanding, learn about other countries, and make comparisons to their own lives. The stories reflect the lives of children in Israel, Palestine, The Netherlands, Norway, Haiti, Indonesia, New York City, Burundi, and more. Students can visit Valdo in Haiti right away and then travel the world via in-app purchases ranging from $1.99 to $15.99, per friend. Real stories from around the globe are told child to child, with full-color photographs and narration. Students can record themselves speaking and counting in their friend’s language. They can choose an “Adventure” story and decide how they want to interact with their new friends, and they can record a conversation with the “Tell me about yourself” feature. Students also learn interesting facts about each country they visit and enhance their knowledge of geography by putting themselves and their friends and family on the globe and seeing where they are in relation to their new friends. The Globe Smart Education app also includes in-depth teaching supports that will get students moving and thinking.
