A Smartphone is an important part of our life these days. Be it booking a cab, a movie ticket, watching the latest viral videos, listening to your favorite tracks, or playing an addicting strategy game. A smartphone does it all for you. As parents, we don’t want our kids to be addicted to smartphones just like us. Hard to accept, but it’s true that 80% of smartphone users are addicted to their devices.
Recent studies suggest that tech companies are working hard to make their apps more engaging so that users cannot stop themselves from using their apps. To keep a perfect balance of using smartphones for a limited time & learning in the due course is by using StartAR Smartbooks.
Kids are already using phones and tablets.
In this paragraph, I’ll be discussing how kids are affected by the over-usage of phones & tablets.
Firstly, kids love to watch their favorite cartoons on Youtube, even if they can’t understand the words of the character, they pay their full attention to the TV or mobile screen. They don’t like books because books don’t interact, make sounds or play music.
Secondly, they are fully engaged in the video content which is not adding much to their development and is quite irrelevant.
Being a technology company, we build a solution for schools, kids, and parents. StartAR Smartbooks is an Augmented Reality smartphone-based learning platform. It engages kids with books using the same Smartphone, which kids use for watching cartoons and playing games. Watching cartoons doesn’t help kids in mental development. With StartAR kids gain general knowledge, also boost their attention, imagination, and creativity, and help them in self-learning. Using StartAR smartbooks kids can see an Elephant come alive on the top of their book.
Now the question arises “How StartAR Smartbooks cuts your kid’s smartphone addiction.”
No kid is ever addicted to his books because books seem to be a boring method of learning.
70% of kids are affected by smartphones. This made us develop a concept having the fun of gadgets and values of traditional books.
StartAR application works offline on any Android device, it doesn’t require an internet connection to operate.
For instance, on Youtube and other video-based learning platforms, there is no barrier & time constraint on watching videos. StartAR app only works with books. It makes kids get attracted to books and diverts them from other games and apps. Each content is of limited time duration.
Moreover, Youtube is seamless and you never know what possible suggestions your kid can have on screen.
Most importantly, StartAR Smartbooks app is full of engaging and selected content which is appropriate for kids and helps them improve their concentration.
In conclusion, many parents don’t want their kids to use smartphones. Gone are the days when humans used to write on banana leaves. To be progressive we need to adopt new methods of learning. As a result of which the kids will be more future-ready. Have a look at Kyrascope’s StartAR review video.
