[prMac.com] Sao Paulo, Brazil - Shine On, a series of books for English language teaching for kids (for Elementary School), recently launched in our country by Oxford University Press, has found a powerful ally in the new app for smartphones and tablets, created and published by the Brazilian company Ø1 Digital. Megabyte is a virtual pet created by language specialists to combine English language learning and fun. It uses game mechanics to develop curiosity and the will for learning in kids.
Following the same procedures as the old Tamagochis, kids have to feed, care, and play with the virtual pet Megabyte by means of activities and funny and challenging mini-games which stimulate the frequent practice of the English language. Besides the game mechanics, the app uses speech recognition technology in order to help kids improve their pronunciation. Parents can also monitor their kids' improvement through daily reports in the app.
"We matched Oxford's quality and content with unique technologies and gamified concepts so that kids can learn by playing", said Roberto Icizuca, marketing director of Ø1 Digital.
