It works with iOS and Android tablets and connects with Square Panda’s library of learning games, all of which are grounded in research. Square Panda takes a multisensory approach by engaging different senses (sight, touch and sound), which research has proven to be the most impactful way to help kids learn to read. The playset interacts with 45 physical smart letters, all of which are recognized within each game in the Square Panda learning library. Incorporating smart letters is a way to draw the child’s attention away from the tablet screen momentarily, engaging their physical senses and encouraging them to learn letter shapes as they play through its learning games. Square Panda has a new version of its Home Edition. This new version is a sleeker and more compact design, which was improved thanks to input from parents and teachers. It also encompasses improved data technology capabilities. This new system is launching alongside Square Panda’s new world of play called SquareLand.
