SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/18/12 -- Tucoola wants you and your preschool-aged children to try a new technology platform that personalizes their skills development with free online interactive games and activities in six languages. The company today announced the official launch of its Social Learning Platform at the DEMO Spring 2012 Conference in Santa Clara, CA. Tucoola (http://www.tucoola.com/), recently launched, saw rapid growth to more than 300,000 unique users per month.
"As parents, we are constantly looking for opportunities to help our young children recognize a color, a shape, a number, and a letter. We want to help them develop math skills, language skills, reading skills, and help them get ready for school," said Tucoola founder & President, Idan Bar. "We are thrilled to unveil today a social platform that delivers skills enhancement and school readiness programs, using fun online games that we believe will excite parents and children."
Tucoola capitalizes on worldwide interest in online educational tools representing a large growing market currently estimated at 200 million users and provides next-generation capabilities through a proprietary algorithm-based technology.
"Online activities have been shown to help children improve memory skills, attention span, hand-eye coordination and other cognitive and social skills that equip them to succeed in life but most lack the critical engagement factor that inspires kids to keep coming back," said founder of the Research Center for Innovation in Learning Technologies at The Open University of Israel, Professor Yoram Eshet. "Tucoola's skills development programs are automatically modified to accommodate skill levels and maximize children's interest and engagement factor in addition to presenting kids with virtual rewards, while detailed reports provide insightful information about development progress that appeal to parents and educators."
Tucoola, developer of Social Learning Platform, delivers skills enhancement and school readiness program for preschool-aged children using interactive games embedded with patented algorithms. Tucoola offers activities and resources for children, parents and the whole family in six languages and empowers parents to give their children the foundation to be happy and successful.
