Press Release (ePRNews.com) - SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - Jun 14, 2017 - With all the challenges that San Bernardino has faced in the last few years, making national headlines on a few occasions, a little positive has arrived on the scene with the launch from the downtown area of a free online reading tool that works on any smart phone, tablet, iPad or computer connected to the internet, and which allows two to five-year-olds to learn their alphabet, first ten numbers, twelve basic colors, twelve basic shapes and fifty basic words.
The reading application, called 321Read, was developed over a period of nearly two years by local veterans in conjunction with the non-profit Global Education Vision, a multinational 501(c)(3) charitable organization that is dedicated to providing an affordable, quality education to the developing world.
Children today spend countless hours using their phones, tablets and computers to play mind-numbing games that replace other forms of productive activity. “It’s easy to hand your phone to your child and let them play ‘Angry Birds’ or ‘Candy Crush’ or any number of other addictive applications, but in the end, what do they really take away from that?” asks Donnie Nichols, one of the principal developers of 321Read. “Why not use the same time for something educational?”
321Read is an online tool that runs on a website, so there are no applications to download, no software updates, no push notifications and no advertising. Navigation inside the site is easy enough for a two-year-old, and there are motivations built in for congratulating a job well done.
