Education App Developers at Lounge Lizard Celebrate the Launch of Siraj
Education is invaluable because it not only broadens your thinking and expands what you are able to do, but it is also something that can’t be taken away from you. For those reasons alone the Education App Developers at Lounge Lizard are celebrating the launch of Siraj, an educational app that is designed to improve children’s literacy skill sets in the Arabic language.
There are certain projects developers are lucky to be a part of and the Education App Developers were excited to see a project focused around language, literacy and helping maintain culture while encouraging creativity.
The Siraj App
The Qatar Foundation created a 3D animated TV series titled ‘Siraj’ in November of 2016. The concept behind the series is to take children ages 2 to 8 on a journey of discovery and exploration while providing an educational component for learning the Arabic language at an early age.
Each episode of the series is based around a specific letter of the Arabic alphabet. Rashid and his older sister, Noura, along with friends go on adventures that combine entertainment, education, creativity and innovation with a backdrop of Qatari landmarks.
The Siraj App is an extension of the TV series allowing for fun and interactivity on the OS platform for iPad users. At its core the app is a multifunctional educational tool, designed to follow the story of Siraj while also using content that parents and teachers can make use of in furthering the language skills of children.
Like many educational apps, Siraj utilizes animated characters that have to accomplish specific step-related goals during their adventures. Positive reinforcement and encouragement are utilized along with familiar markings from the show to help with emersion and focus. Designed for iOS 5.1.1 or later, this iPad app is free and available Lounge Lizard.Share Article
