Shape together: interactive tablet stamp set – Educo
The Educo shape together interactive stamp set is part of the new connected learning collection which combines a physical product with a learning app on a tablet. The wooden blocks in the set work with the body’s static electricity, which makes them 100% electricity and battery-free. The sensors creating interaction with the tablet are made from flexible material, and this they are safe to be used on a tablet screen.
Shape together allows the child to learn colours and shapes. The 6 different games in the app can be played unsupervised and promote social and cooperative skills. Of the 6 games, 3 games are played together and the other 3 games are played against one another. By means of the tablet, the exercises are supported by images and sounds.
Shape together can be played on two levels as the settings offer a possibility to switch off the appearance of half of the shapes and colours, thus allowing children only to play with the 4 basic colours and shapes. After mastering the first level, the child then proceeds to work on level two which features 8 colours and shapes.
The bottom of the included wooden storage box has pictures printed on it, which allows the children to store the stamps in their right places themselves.
Shape together has been developed in collaboration with Marbotic and consists of a combination of wooden stamps and an educational app for tablets. Working with the stamps requires neither a Wi-Fi – or Bluetooth – connection nor batteries. The free app is available for all IPads (except IPad 1) and many Android tablets (Samsung, Lenovo, Asus).
The required app for this set can be downloaded for free from the App Store and from Google Play. It can be found under “Shape Together.” The app is available in English, Dutch, Flemish, German, French, Spanish and Chinese.
This material is suitable for children aged 4 years and up.
