We are delighted with the response to Skoolbo 2.0 which has launched on both the web and PC. Already over 50,000 Snazzimals (the reward for completing a Daily Challenge) have been achieved.
Skoolbo 2.0 represents a major expansion with the inclusion of step-by-step lessons as well as new content in Writing, Languages, Science, Geography, Art, Music, Financial Literacy and Brain Games. We are especially excited about the Skoolbo voice analyzer which decodes what children are saying when reading or completing speech and vocabulary activities.
There is still much to launch over the coming weeks as Skoolbo 2.0 fully releases for students, teachers and parents. We appreciate your understanding while these enhancements come into place. We can’t wait for everyone to enjoy the great new materials!
Please be aware that once the iOS, Android and Mac versions are fully released we will be shutting down the older versions of Skoolbo. This will require homes and schools to upgrade across to the newest version of Skoolbo.
Look out for some great new additions to Skoolbo in September when we release Skoolbo 2.0!
Early Readers: The inclusion of over 500 levelled early reader eBooks ideal for taking beginning readers through to being able to read chapter books. Teachers and parents will be able to list back to the child’s reading to help give further guidance and see improvement over time.
Narrated Lessons: Hundreds of narrated lessons helping teach fundamental concepts.
Content for Preschoolers: The inclusion of a wide range of new learning materials specifically designed for 3 to 5 year olds. There is a special focus on vocabulary development.
Expansion of Languages: The inclusion of hundreds of lessons and songs to aid the learning of Spanish and Mandarin.
Snazzimals– New Reward Structure Centred Around Daily Quests: The addition of the wonderfully cute Snazzimals which students will collect as a reward for completing a daily learning quest.
Learning Songs and Brain Breaks: Hundred of songs specifically designed to aid learning and promote activity.
Brain Games: The addition of purpose built cognitive games designed to aid logic, spatial reasoning, pattern recognition, concentration and memory skills for young children.
Web Browser: A revamped web browser experience which is especially important for the nearly 40% of students who access Skoolbo via the web. The browser and app experience will be fully integrated.
Free for Schools: We are delighted to confirm Skoolbo will remain free for schools. There will however be the addition of inexpensive family accounts (approximately $6 per month) for home use.
The Skoolbo team are super excited about the launch of Skoolbo 2.0 and we can’t wait to share the many wonderful new learning materials with everyone come September!
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Skoolbo Learnathon – an innovative and exciting way to improve educational outcomes for learners while, at the same time, raising extra funds for their classroom!
Students are challenged to answer 1,000 reading and maths questions. Family and friends can pledge their support and 100% of funds raised go towards teaching resources. There is no administration for teachers involved and all donations are handled safely via Skoolbo – it could not be simpler!
All funds raised will be given to participating children’s teachers as credit in the new Skoolbo shop. Just take a look at some of the outstanding providers we have teamed up with!
And we have added a little extra motivation for players too! The Skoolbo team have created some exciting digital rewards that students can earn during the Learnathon. For example, answering I,000 questions will be rewarded with a fabulous hypersonic jet!
