Learning materials in a secure, digital form and aligned to teaching objectives and curriculum, accelerate mastery
PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 17, 2016 /CNW/ -- On Thursday, at the American Speech – Language – Hearing Association (ASHA) 2016 Convention, Mundo Pato, Inc. announced the delivery of cloud-based educational materials to its suite of solutions. In partnership with LearnMore, Inc., Mundo Pato is providing a significant step forward in the quality of digitized, cloud-based educational materials for both standard and special education needs, targeted for use by learners and educators in schools and treatment centers. The innovative materials will support teachers and therapists to achieve core learning objectives in areas such as verbal and cognitive skills, sensory skills, and reading and math skills.
Physical tools and educational materials today are time consuming and cumbersome to set up, store and don't live in digital form where the data can be immediately captured and available with a click or a touch, via tablets or smartphones. Furthermore, by designing these materials in conjunction with industry experts such as Dr. Gladys Williams at LearnMore and a team of professionals that include educators, therapists, animators, musicians, artists and software developers Mundo Pato provides a solution which ensures compliance and alignment with treatment plans, educational programs and curricula.
"The advantage of using Mundo Pato designed materials is that they free up a speech pathologist's or teacher's time to teach, and materials can be aligned to specific protocols and curriculum learning objectives with greater efficiency and accuracy," said Dr. Gladys Williams, CEO at LearnMore, Inc.
Our teaching materials include relatable theme based characters, objects, backgrounds and actions that are staged for learners to use in conjunction with their lesson plans. Our applications engage a learner's attention because it feels more like playing a game while also providing the learner with the necessary tools and skills to achieve mastery. The UnitusTI Cloud data collection and processing system distributes the materials while tracking and recording student actions and progress. This is all accomplished in real-time with ongoing results reporting and charting for each learner. This gives educators and therapists the ability to make instant, informed adjustments to learning plans thereby enhancing teaching objectives and outcomes.

"There is no comparison to the joy you experience while designing a new character and seeing the positive reactions in children's faces. From sketching the concept, to fully painting and animating each character, at Mundo Pato we use the number of smiles and sparks in children's eyes as our main quality indicator," said Cesar Pachon, Cloud Materials Architect, Mundo Pato, Inc.
Mundo Pato Inc. is dedicated to the creation of cloud solutions for the educational and treatment fields. With its publishing platform UnitusTI, tools are designed to enhance the effectiveness of treatment and education by turning data into insights and creating a seamless communication environment between learners, educators and parents.
