A Maneno Insight
Our goal is quite simple; to encourage all children to love reading.
Maneno is an educational app aimed at children between 5 and 10 years old. It is focused around the idea that 15 minutes a day of reading can not only increase a child’s literacy level, but also their ability to learn.
It is a unique reading tool that was developed in conjunction with teachers, parents and children to build a solution that motivates them to learn and progress in a fun, engaging and interactive way.
And the theory is backed by research and best practice too.
Maneno’s framework is built around four key components for learning and development; motivation, comprehension, aided assistance, progress and feedback. These core principles are cleverly brought to life through audio and visual features giving children a reason to read every day.
