Junganew, LLC develops the most technologically advanced and interactive educational apps for children ages 4+.
Junganew: A Herd of Sounds is an interactive speech and language adventure series of apps where our main character, Theo the Tree Frog travels through the land of Junganew, with the help of his friends, to learn his sounds. Each app focuses entirely on one sound of the English language. The characters and their habitats represent the target sound, inspiring children with fun-filled, language immersive activities.
The activities within the app inspire children to move through familiar outdoor games such as Hide and Seek and popping balloons at a carnival. Therefore, children learn that their sound is alive in all people and all places. It creates a sound experience so that children begin recognizing their sound wherever they are or whatever they are doing. Junganew is more than just teaching a specific sound. It is a metalinguistic approach, where a story comes to life; giving children the opportunity to learn through music, play, and movement.
-Pre-academic and academic skills.
-Auditory discrimination skills.
-Turn taking skills.
-Comparative learning of the target sound vs. the errored sound.
The characters in Junganew were inspired by a love for animals and their unique features which capture the production of a specific sound. The name Junganew was derived from Carl Jung, a psychologist who taught the works of empowerment. It is our mission here at Junganew to empower all children with fun, educational apps to learn and play. Fred Rogers said it best…”Play is really the work of childhood.”
We love that we can provide this foundation that kids can use to move forward as better speakers and functional communicators in a social environment.
