This is a new TAL offering for Mazaam, a game for children.
Mazaam is a musical game that supports the cognitive development of children from 4 to 6 years old. Originally developed as an app for consumers, the vendor is now offering this game for libraries as a subscription.
This is a newer product and the company is based out of Quebec.
April 28/01: The TAL discount increased from 20% to 30%. Webinar details have been added.
From the vendor:
The Mazaam edutainment app contributes to the global development of children ages 4 to 6 through the use of classical music. Mazaam’s pedagogical approach is based on several years of scientific research led by the Canada Research Chair in Music and Learning.
PARENTS magazine named Mazaam the Best Learning app in 2020 in the musical basics category.
It is a bilingual resource.
This was originally developed as an app but the web based subscription version is now available to libraries and still works on mobile devices.
