Thank you Playing Forward for sponsoring this post about Lizzy’s World and the NYC Weekend Getaway Giveaway.
Have you heard of Lizzy’s World?
As a teacher, I love all things STEAM related and this app fits the bill. In addition to using augmented reality, Lizzy’s World also support kids’ social-emotional development through entertaining storytelling. As a mom, I look for engaging apps that my girls will enjoy and learn something too. Not only is this a great app, I also wanted to share that Playing Forward Lizzy’s World is having an AMAZING Giveaway going on. It ends 11:59 PM October 1 so act quickly as not to miss out. Read below for all the details.
Just like Lizzy, my daughter is interested in all things STEAM related too.
I love when brands focus on the overall well-being of the child. Playing Forward is a transformational technology studio that creates digital experiences that ignite children’s imaginations.
Playing Forward apps are specifically designed to , movie-quality visual effects, and the use of Augmented Reality.
According to studies, social emotional development is key to success in school and in life. Playing Forward’s name comes from the fact that the company is “playing it forward” to give every child the very best shot at a happy childhood and a successful adulthood.
I have to agree with the studies. Teaching the overall child is key for well being and growth. To make sure that the app was moving in the right direction, Playing Forward based its app designs on extensive research in the field of social-emotional learning and beta-tested its apps with over 300 children in 18 classrooms across the United States and Canada.
What is Lizzy’s World all about?
Lizzy’s World can be experienced in two ways: as a ‘bedtime story’ that can be read along with in 3D, and as a much more active ‘exploration’ in augmented reality, encouraging the reader to move around and experience the story from multiple perspectives.
Lizzy’s World follows Lizzy, a boisterous and relatable redhead, as she experiences school and everything that comes with it for the very first time.
The app reflects a young child’s emotional development, using 3D and augmented reality to create an engaging setting for kids to explore and find new ways to express their feelings.
STEAM-powered story: Lizzy discovers the delights of math and science, along with reading and art.
