The marketing giant with a search engine as its best product, Google on Wednesday, has rolled out a tutoring app for kids in India.
Observing the gradual increase in smartphone usage, Google finds out a way to educate and help kids to learn basics in a fun way.
Google’s Bolo Helps Indian Rural Kids To Learn Basics In a Fun Way
Naming it as “Bolo“, Google wants to help kids of rural areas and others who don’t have access to quality primary education.
With Hindi and English languages as current learning options, Google plans out to add more Indic languages soon. The company is in talks with other child welfare organizations to partner with.
Google has already tested this app in Unnao district of UP with fewer participants in October 2018 to January 2019. In which it found the outcome to be positive and effective. That further encouraged the company to release officially to the entire country.
Making it easy, this app doesn’t require much of handy operations and can rather be accessed or configured by voice commands mostly.
Diya is everywhere!
Google embedded a playful voice assistant in the app called Diya. She will be present on every screen guiding and encouraging the kid in every activity he/she is performing. Diya reads out the poem/story aloud and prompts to join. Upon completion of any task, Diya congratulates and prompts for the next level. This could be a fun way of learning something when you have a companion encouraging you all the way.
Sized about 47MB, this app has about 16 preloaded stories to start with and currently available in beta version from Playstore.
