WARRINGTON based children’s entertainer Lucia Davies has helped create a special “app” to help get kids off apps!
Developed by Matmi Educate ‘Lucia’s World’ is a completely revolutionary app that turnschildren’s education on its head.
Lucia’s World’s main purpose is to encourage children and their parents toexplore technology together in a mindful way and also to avoid being completely reliant on it. The app even comes with a ‘screen time alarm’!
Eighteen months of dedicated development has gone into the app. With the current pandemic seeing more mobile app downloads by kids than ever before, many parents and carers may be encountering ‘screen time guilt’ as they try to find quick alternative, constructive and creative learning opportunities for their children. Lucia’s World aims to help restore a healthy balance between digital and real world learning opportunities.
Lucia’s World feels like an interactive TV show, which encourages kids to use their creativity and develop language skills with positive lessons on mindfulness and wellbeing. It’s creation is the result of a collaboration between Matmi, winner of a variety of industry awards for educational apps, and Lucia Davies, children’s author and renowned entertainer.
Jeff Coghlan, Managing Director at Matmi explains “Technology should enhance our lives, not control them, throughout the app we continuously inspire children to explore the world around them through completing fun and educational activities.”
Lucia Davies who lives in Appleton Thorn comments “I have noticed that children are becoming more reliant on technology for problem solving, socialising and entertainment. It’s imperative that children and their families spend quality time with one another in the real world and not too often in cyberspace. Finding a healthier balance has never been more important as it is today. Jeff and the wonderful Matmi team however, have great ideas on how to regain that healthy balance. The narrative in Lucia’s World has a strong driving force to achieve this.”
