SCRAPPY RELEASES EDUCATIONAL APP FOR CHILDREN
Soca artist, Gavin ‘Scrappy’ Johnson, has teamed up with Brazilian app designer Nicole Dantas to produce an app for his charity R.E.A.D (Reward Education And Determination). The app is a brain training game to help develop children’s memory through play. It allows you to test your memory by matching cards and gives your short term memory a good developmental workout, all while having fun. The app features Oliver Oriole, R.E.A.D’s mascot; a friendly Oriole who teaches children fundamental literacy and numeracy skills.
“Right now I am really focused on establishing my charity”, expressed Mr. Johnson. “I know in this day and age, we have a lot of access to tech stuff and I think that if we can give our kids something that they can relate to and still educate themselves then we are future-proofing our generations to come. I am a firm believer in knowledge being power, so I am aiming to contribute to the educational development of our youths.”
The app, which launched on October 31st 2016, is available for free download on all android devices for a limited time.
