We are extremely pleased to announce that Q-files, the online encyclopedia designed for children, and African Storybook stories, a collection of stories specially created for African children, have been added to the iMlango learning platform. The online encyclopedia and collection of stories are available to all 195 iMlango schools and is accessible via the school PC equipment.
The addition of Q-files brings further engaging and dynamic learning content to the learning platform, as well as enabling students to source information in an exploratory way. The online encyclopedia is home to many intriguing and important subjects such as: history, science, geography, culture and technology. The content is constantly updated by education professionals and includes pictures and videos that enhance the delivery of the content for students. The pages in Q-files have been written by specialist children's writers, working alongside an experienced editorial team, and every page has been submitted to the detailed scrutiny of the team, ensuring high standards of accuracy and reliability.
Access to engaging learning content is imperative to improving learning outcomes and in particular, literacy. African Storybook stories provides students with access to literature when books are not available. The stories can be accessed in either English or Swahili, promoting multilingual development and are presented with beautiful illustrations. The African Storybook Project is an initiative of Saide, a registered Non-Profit Organisation based in Johannesburg, South Africa. Their vision is for all African children to have enough stories in a language familiar to them to practise reading, and to learn to love reading.
The addition of Q-files and African Storybook stories has been extremely well received by the schools and their students.
Until next time,
The iMlango team
