Learning Journeys: Companion App

Miko’s Companion App is introducing “Reading Adventures” to engage children in becoming better readers through stories accompanied by breathtaking visuals.

In a Scholastic study, 74% of kids said that reading fiction and nonfiction is a way to help them understand the world; 88% of parents say the same. More than half of kids (53%) and parents (55%) agree a book has helped them/ their child through a difficult time.

Reading is directly connected to intelligence, creativity and high intellect when done from a young age. Reading along with or to children is practised by cultures because it provides emotional support and transfers knowledge and understanding.

However, a 2023 study by the National Literacy Trust (UK) has discovered that there has been a 26% decrease in the number of children and young people aged 8 to 18 who read daily in their free time since 2005 (decreasing from 38.1% to 28.0%). Fewer children and young people who receive FSMs said they read daily compared with those who don't (24.1% vs. 28.9%).

With Miko’s Learning Journeys, we want to cultivate a love for reading and all the intellectual and therapeutic advantages it brings to young readers.

Unlock New Stories: 

From easy to hard to challenging, children slowly build reading skills by engaging in the As children progress through their personalized adventure, they unlock a new treasure of stories only after successfully finishing one, ensuring they meet all learning goals!

Active and Passive Reading:

Active Reading: Children are prompted to read stories aloud actively. They get real-time feedback on pronunciation, which helps with retention, and the interactive nature of the app keeps them engaged.

Passive Reading: For days when children prefer to listen, sit back and listen to the stories and answer the questions that follow! A good mix of both types of reading strengthens reading and pronunciation skills.

Customized Learning Journeys:

All children learn at a different pace and our ‘Learning Journeys’ allow parents to tailor it to their child’s needs. Every step is carefully designed to cater to the unique needs and abilities of the young reader. This individualized approach ensures that children remain motivated and find joy in learning to read.
