The Wordworks App.
Users receive activity related messages from Monday to Thursday and an inspirational message on Fridays. The resource section contains short instructional videos as well as stories, rhymes and songs for young children. The app can be used by individuals, groups of parents, caregivers or preschool teachers. A tracking and sharing functionality allows users to see how they are progressing through the learning journey and to share activities or ideas with other users.
To address the cost of data, the app runs in offline mode after it has been downloaded, and there is no cost to access the content once it has been downloaded. The cost of download depends on whether Wifi or mobile data is used, but even on an expensive mobile data package, download costs should be less than R10 (USD 0.70.)
