For busy parents, sometimes it can be quite challenging to source for suitable learning resources for their children. Recently, I was introduced to the Complete Educational Program from LearningTech, which is a holistic program for children from preschool to primary school.
One interesting feature of the program is Eltee Pen, which is an audio learning device. By tapping the icons, it would “speak” or “sing”! The children were amazed by it!
There are 3 components: Awareness – Time to Learn, Ability – A Time for Math, Attitude – Lifetime Values.
This is a set of encyclopedia with 3 sections, Living World, Explore, as well as Science & Technology. A question is used as a stimulus to trigger the curiosity in the children. In addition to the text, Eltee Pen has extra information, songs and sound effects. There are also suggested investigative activities for the children to carry out hands-on experimentation. This provides an all-rounded learning experience – visual, audio and kinesthetic.
In addition, the Children’s Atlas enhances their knowledge in Geography and different cultures. A tap of Eltee Pen on the icon would play the national anthem of the country, so interesting! The children learn new vocabulary using Children’s Dictionary. Not too worry if you are not sure how to pronounce certain words, as Eltee Pen would do a great job!
It is not meaningful to be the most knowledgeable person who does not have good character. One way to introduce positive values to the children is through storytelling. Through reading with the children or using Eltee Pen, the children learn about moral values like honesty, caring, and sharing. The colourful illustrations are attractive, and the children are engaged through the dramatisation and music from Eltee Pen.
