Ruby commented on Learning through STEAM Storybook Kits

Thanks for asking, Dahlia! This is a good question. One of the many goals If the product is to be inclusive. The idea should be adaptable. We would need to do more future explorations to learn more about the specific disabilities and needs are. Perhaps there is a series for children in hospitals or for special care in the future. We intend to include accessibility feature on the mobile app as well. Our initial plan is to start out small. We appreciate your comments.

Thank you for the feedback, Katie. I would love to get this into the classrooms and libraries.

Ruby commented on Learning through STEAM Storybook Kits

Hi Victoria,

Thanks for your feedback. I come from old school where I think children should learn concepts and foundations before going into screens. Screens are powerful tools and can consume us. Having a 3D kit allows children to experience the materials, how the real world works. The app is secondary, to accompany the kit. We cannot steer them away completely but give good guidance. Technology is readily available in first world countries, in more affluent communities but technology is not available in all parts of the world still. The concept should reach communities globally on different levels.
