Cora’s Cottage is excited to announce a new addition to our curriculum: The Animal Island Learning Adventures Sit & Play device.
AILA Sit & Play is intended for parents and caregivers with toddlers who can sit and play, and engage with multimedia content. The built-in content comes from the Animal Island Learning Adventure original series, which is designed for toddlers from 12 to 36 months in age. The curriculum will prepare children for preschool and start a love for life-long learning.
AILA’s innovative cognitive artificial intelligence platform delivers content that adapts in real-time to a child’s interest based on their physical and emotional reactions. Designed as 10-15 minute sessions or learning modules, keeping within the guidelines recommended by the World Health Organization of no more than one hour per day, the videos focus on one key concept per session using a variety of multimodal experiences. Multimodal experiences teach concepts using multiple modes. Modes are ways of communicating information in some way, including, but not limited to pictures, audio, speech, music, movement, gestures, and colors.
Each session of AILA includes curated songs, stories, an introduction to key concepts such as letters, numbers, shapes, or colors and engaging gameplay. AILA ensures a child-centered, engaging experience through its original characters, songs, and scenarios that illustrate positive interactions and behavior.
The device automatically tracks the interest of the child to offer individualized and personalized learning and to ensure active screen time engagement. AILA informs parents and caregivers about specific activities to follow up on to make a real-world connection to learning for their children.
