Usiku Games, a Kenyan mobile games company, has unveiled edutainment games to help primary school-aged children improve on their learning skills especially in Math and English languages.
The mobile web-based platform dubbed “Tizi Games” are designed to be fun and entertaining as they help educate the pupils. Each game is designed around a particular subject based on the new Competency-Based Curriculum (CBC) developed by the KICD.
According to Jay Shapiro, CEO of Usiku Games, Tizi Games help improve children’s skills in memory, concentration, and development of knowledge:
“At Usiku Games, we create, design, and produce edutainment content to help today’s children to learn in ways that are fun and resonate with them. We’ve specialized in developing games that will improve skills, focus and cognitive reasoning. Our games are designed to be easy to learn, but still challenging and fun.”
Targeting the 8 million primary school pupils in Kenya, Tizi Games mirror the new CBC curriculum, which encourages imagination, creativity and critical thinking among children. Tizi’s interactive games create opportunities for problem-solving, reinforcing the cognitive abilities of the student.
