We founded iSikhna to create a development and testing platform for applications for literacy and numeracy, focusing initially on young children in a classroom context and in self learning and game processes. We try to find a balance between meeting childrens’ formal learning needs in language and numeracy and also for it to be engaging and, well why not, fun.
Our objectives also focus on the promotion of culture and creativity in our Apps design with particular attention to different cultures, languages and stories.
We are committed to User Centred Design. We constantly test and get feedback from children and teachers which then loops into the design process.
We are also working a reading, writing and pronunciation application for young children in the iSikhna AppLab, in English, French, Japanese, Berber and Hindi.
