Welcome Educators!

Use VizuVizu In Your Early Childhood Classroom

Independent Play

Nurture children’s shape and color skills, and foster visual-spatial reasoning through independent practice with VizuVizu apps. Consider children’s prior knowledge as you determine individual goals and monitor progress within the Grown-Ups Area. Encourage children to replay levels according to their skill needs or classroom curriculum.

Paired Learning

Provide opportunities for children to play and learn together, facilitated by the multi-touch interface and bilateral game design. Children can work on one side of the screen or takes turns, communicating and collaborating as they solve puzzles and create pictures.

Center Time

Make VizuVizu apps available in a variety of learning centers, including your math and technology centers. Support children’s developing visual-spatial skills by extending the apps into a variety of other learning centers for open-ended play and exploration.

Small Group Instruction

Supplement your math and science curriculum by using VizuVizu apps with small groups of children. Reinforce shape constancy, sorting, color mixing, observation, experimentation, and collaborative problem solving as children play and learn together.
