Teacher Overview

One Globe Kids - children's stories from around the world app really helps children see what it is like to live in other countries through the perspective of native children. A day in my life stories from kids with relatable, diverse experiences around the world create a highly engaging learning experience and make the kids understand global cultures through audio and videos based stories.

Teacher Review

Kids choose a story, then listen to and read it by swiping through each page to turn to the next page. If you want to choose different approaches to the story, choose "Adventure" or choose "Start to Finish!" to read from beginning to end. Tap "Conversations" and press the red button to record audio of your own voice telling your story (which isn't shared publicly). Tap the language option to hear and practice speaking some vocabulary words in another language. Beautiful photos and high-quality audio add to this cultural and social learning experience.
 
Parents can try speaking and recording some words in the languages of the featured kids with your kid. Learning and remembering just a few words in different languages at a young age can spark kids' long-term interest in and confidence about learning more languages. 
 
One Globe Kids includes several titles:
  • Gabou in Haiti
  • Floor in The Netherlands
  • Lars in The Netherlands
  • Aji in Indonesia
  • Jenissa in Burundi
  • Luna in New York City
  • Lucian in New York city

SAFE! i.e. NOT A SOCIAL NETWORK! 
Cool Mom Tech explained it best: "Rest assured One Globe Kids is not a social network--there's no way to communicate through the app, but it will still feel that way to your kids, which they'll think is cool. So as a parent I can let my kids freely explore the globe and learn to appreciate and respect people who live differently than we do."

One Globe Kids is kidSafe certified. We follow the “Know What’s Inside” best practices for kid’s apps.

This app: 
• Does NOT collect any personal information from users. Users can upload their own image, record their own voice (counting to 10 in Kirundi, for example!), and put themselves on the globe within the app, but this data stays on the device and is NEVER transmitted. 
• Has NO advertisements in it.
• Does NOT include any social media links or plug ins.
• Does NOT link to other websites. 
• DOES have optional in-app purchases.
• Has a positive view of the world, regardless the race, nationality, education level, gender, or socio-economic background.
• Believes diversity is beautiful and essential.
