A free kid-friendly, colorful, and interactive dictionary encyclopedia for visual learners has arrived online. Dorling Kindersley DK Publishing has taken the amazing graphics they have become known for from the page to the screen. DKfindout! Launched in January, 2015 and is currently in a fully functional BETA mode. Since that time, teachers, parents, and students have discovered a fun, new way to learn.
Students use it to learn, but don’t tell them they’re actually learning as they explore sights and sounds of education. Teachers use it for lesson planning. Parents use it to connect with their children and to help with homework. Homeschoolers use it for all of the above.
It is an image-based encyclopedia that covers subjects like math, English, science, geography, the human body, and history. Is intended to be a safe environment where children ages 7 to 11 years old are free to explore. A huge additional perk is that this online learning site is free.
DKfindout! Was announced in January at the American Library Association’s Midwinter Conference in Chicago, and is currently in BETA form. The intent is to stay on top of development, based upon user feedback, throughout 2015.
