We are proud to present UMIGO, a cross media math experience funded by a Ready to Learn Grant from the US Department of Education. UMIGO is available to you and your family through an interactive touch screen “You Make It Go” mount located in the Children’s Room. There, the world of UMIGO is yours to explore at the swipe of a screen through multi layered appisodes.
Each appisode is a multimedia experience that combines funny, character driven stories, leveled game play and music videos. As they play, users will follow the adventures and mishaps of Bit, Bean and Dizzy – 3 outrageous and adventurous best friends. Children become active participants in the story and use their math skills to solve the gang’s biggest problems.
Aligned with the Common Core Standards for Mathematics, UMIGO is a fun and engaging way to supplement learning that is already taking place in the classroom. Parents and children alike will process and master topics at a personalized pace; creating the building blocks to future learning. By presenting material in an exciting way, UMIGO builds a positive association with math and allows children to build the self efficacy and confidence necessary to become effective problem solvers. Best of all new appisodes are being released every few months, ensuring fresh and interesting content for both kids and parents to enjoy.
