Sound, Noise, and Hearing
An interactive educational app for preschoolers, teaching them through fun animations, interactives, voice-overs and text what makes a healthy hearing system.
What is Noise?
Noise is any unwanted or disturbing sound, while sounds often surround us, noises can annoy and even cause adverse health effects. Teaching children to identify the difference between sounds and noises, can help them learn when and how they can protect their ears.
This app teaches children the importance of a healthy hearing system, the basics of how our hearing works, the difference between sound and noises. What unpleasant noises and pleasant sounds are and how important it is to have a healthy hearing system.
Through interactive animations, virtual reality explanation of sounds, and explainer videos, children can discover the who, what, where, when and whys of hearing.
What is W5Go?
Our goal is to create an extensive collection of immersive educational applications that are available to everyone. Throughout the applications, we aim to help children learn English, by teaching 20+ words in every application. The best way to learn a language is through immersion, we introduce English through voice-over, graphics, and text. All of our applications are free to download, free from advertisements, no internet required and do not have any in-app purchases.
All of our episodes are geared towards children aged 4-12. With bright colors and graphics, we want children to learn English and simples concepts such as proper hygiene, through a fun interactive environment. We want to encourage children to use their imagination, explore and have fun while learning!
We believe that any topic can be taught to a child, by simply breaking it down into the five W’s (Who, What, Where, When and Why). We want to encourage children to always ask the five W’s. When they question how things work and ask “why not” or “what if” they are continually learning and embracing creativity. In all of our episodes, we go through the five W’s and let the child guess what the answers could be before explaining.
Why AR/ VR Technology?
W5Go focuses on creating virtual environments for children to learn, explore and use their imagination in the safety of their own home. With so many advancements in technology is it essential for children to have an even balance of traditional learning and new mobile learning.
Our applications are VR (Virtual Reality), and AR (Augmented Reality) enabled. Since this technology is becoming such a large part of everyday life, experiencing this technology from a young age is very beneficial, and our applications are meant to complement a child’s traditional education. They feature augmented and virtual reality scenes that are fun, interactive and safe for children. They are based on anchored points and do not require a headset. Which means your child will not have to move around to experience it and will have full visibility at all times.
What advantages does W5GO™ offer?
Resourcefulness – it is a properly researched selection of essential information on important topics for the upbringing of a child
Availability – the information and learning materials are readily available to the child on demand with the use of a Smartphone
Evolution – W5Go Project subscribes to the Wiki notion for collaborative development. Teachers and specialists in child education are invited to give us feedback and to contribute to the development of W5Go Project.
Currently, we have 14 applications available across several platforms. All are free to download, free from advertisements, no internet required and have no in-app purchases. Our vision is to create 100 episodes “Chapters” of W5Go so that children everywhere have the chance to learn English and experience AR/VR technology.
