Game play description: Child chooses a puppy from a choice of 3: Poochi the Pug, Sheppie the German Shepherd, and Rhubarb the Shetland Sheepdog. Guided by instructions from the adult dog, Shadow, the child follows the puppy to the dog house around the shape of a number. The child receives feedback if they go outside the lines. The child has four tries at tracing the number correctly. Upon success, an animation plays of the puppy meeting Shadow at the dog house. The numbers are from 0 to 20. Upon reaching 10, there is a mid-way celebration screen. At successfully completing up to 20, there is a second celebration before the child helps the puppy to choose a toy to put near the kennel.

Bron and Alex with Jazzy, Raven and Louie

I have always had a passion for teaching young, and not so young, children. During high school, I taught swimming and the trombone to numerous children and carried that passion on into adulthood through conducting, teaching or tutoring children from two to 20. Now, I am the proud mother of an amazing four year old boy (and pack leader to two lovable Shelties) , and I have become fascinated by the ever advancing world of mobile learning. As I watch my child engage in learning apps for children on the tablet, I have become aware of how crucial it is that these are quality learning experiences, not just babysitting for parents. So, taking her years of educational knowledge and unwavering commitment to quality, I have joined with my friend, colleague and the equally dedicated Adi to produce fantastic apps supported by sound learning principles.

Adi And Mieke

Growing up as an only child, my sister was a rascally German Shepherd called Lottie—together we played in the backyard, went for walks and generally explored the neighbourhood. These days as an adult, I still love Germans Shepherds—known as Sheppies—and have Mieke as part of my family.  What better then to combine my yearning for learning (Yes, I did read the dictionary and a world atlas as a kid...) and the borderline obsession for Sheppies into a way of fuelling the flame of learning in children. This gig also gives me a creative outlet seeing as the Bachelor of Industrial Design (think cutlery, chairs and cars) and then the post-grad professional writing diploma don’t always get used in the day job of software training for adults.  Bron and I agree it’s a lot more satisfying to watch kids using our apps, smiling, laughing and wow, actually learning something along the way. Bringing learning to life sure is empowering!
