Byju’s launches learning app for children in partnership with Disney
MUMBAI: Learning app Byju’s has launched Disney.Byju’s Early Learn app, available only in India. Created for young children aged between 6 to 8 years old (classes 1- 3), this app offers personalised learning programs while entertaining them with Disney’s timeless stories and characters from Disney Princess, Frozen, Cars, Toy Story franchises and more.
Features of the Disney.BYJU’S Early Learn App includes thousands of animated videos, games, stories and interactive quizzes, digital worksheets to ensure hands-on learning and real-time feedback, state-of-the-art parental reporting system, and contextual and foundational learning experiences.
Kids can choose their journey of quests and practice what they have learned through games. To enrich the engagement and enhance the experience, the app maps each character to a particular concept, based on the character’s true nature and original story. For example, Belle from “Beauty and the Beast” loves reading, so her narrative is built around concepts like letters and sounds.
“Byju’s pedagogy and content expertise are enhanced by the compelling storytelling of Disney in this app and will give a strong head start to the way young children learn their first concepts in India,” said Byju’s founder & CEO Byju Raveendran.
“Disney stories continue to entertain and inspire kids and families in unique ways. With Byju’s, we are excited to offer another unique way for kids in India to interact with Disney characters on a platform they value,” said Disney Publishing APAC Regional Director Veronica Cabalina.
Disney.Byju’s Early Learn App will offer a first-of-its-kind integration of offline to online learning experience through Byju’s recently acquired Osmo platform. The app is currently available in India on Google Play Store and will soon be available on the Apple App Store.
