The app is based on Aesop’s classic fable “The Tortoise and the Hare”
Children venture into a world of dreams and animation, discovering the fable in a personalised way through a drawing they have coloured in. The drawing comes alive and the children become the protagonists, taking part in the action and the story.
They become part of the story and what they do teaches themimportant lessons about life:
-Don’t make fun of others
-Identify your own strengths and limitations and those of others
-Identify competitive advantages
-Don’t let laziness and arrogance stop you from reaching an objective
-Remember that speed is not always the key to success
-Develop your skills
-Create attainable goals
-Work with and help others as a team
The app assists the child’s development, encouraging them to analyse situations, make decisions and follow instructions. It also teachesthe values of responsibility, determination, perseverance, respect for others and nature, positive thinking, creativity, imagination and originality.
The app combines traditional schoolwork with new technologies. The child creates the image – the pupil’s hand gives the story colour.
With this app they can develop their manual skills, drawing ability, sense of direction, muscle tone, hand-eye coordination, spatial orientation, laterality and motor skills, attention skills, the understanding and following of orders, etc.
