The Digits – Stories, Apps, and Toys that Engage and Educate Your Children #makereducation
The Digits make learning fun, while having fun. They have a whole cast of characters that explain science and math concepts in a super playful way. We’ve included a couple of our favorite videos on this post (see below) but we encourage you to check out the complete collection here!
They also have an interactive site here with more information.
The Digits is a live action narrative comedy that uses interactive gameplay to introduce math concepts to children. It is an immersive storytelling universe that creates an entertaining and educational experience. By combining interactive gameplay seamlessly into the narrative, the outcome of the game directly affects the outcome of the story. The Digits turns viewers into players and players into learners! The Digits offers the best of both worlds as it delivers fun, engagement and excitement to children and an educational opportunity to parents.
