Emeryville, California (EastBayDaily) — Kabongo has partnered with The Old Schoolhouse (a online resource for homeschoolers) to provide potential users of Kabongo’s online educational games with reviews from real kids and parents who tried the games and wrote about their experiences.
These reviews are available starting April 4, 2011, and are designed to give parents and teachers useful, practical details about Kabongo’s learning games for kids.
Homeschoolers play-tested Kabongo’s online reading games with their children for usability, engagement, and educational content, offering an unbiased opinion on their blog sites. The reviews are highlighted at Kabongo.com, as well as being posted on each individual tester’s blog site. The reviews were overwhelmingly positive.
Here’s what a few of TOS’s homeschool bloggers said about GoGo Kabongo:
“I’m very passionate that any sort of video gaming my kids have access to on a regular basis have a learning benefit. GoGo Kabongo is a perfect fit for our family. It’s educational, colorful, interactive and fun.” – lafrancefamily.blogspot.com
“I truly believe that GoGo Kabongo can please both the parent and the child. The child will have fun playing while the parent can be assured the games are worthwhile.” – underthegoldenappletree.com
“(GoGo Kabongo)… is a deceptively educational site. I say “deceptive” because my kiddos really were having too much fun “playing” the games to realize that they were LEARNING something…” – thefantasticfive-hockmana.blogspot.com
Reviewers also raved about Kabongo’s new interactive Parent Center, which keeps parents informed about their child’s progress and activity on the site.
“We’re thrilled that the homeschoolers liked our product! These reviews bring even more validation to both the science we’re using and the industry awards we’re accumulating,” says Teri Rousseau, CMO of Kabongo.
