The world may be a great big place, but technology continues to make it smaller and smaller. Now, it can fit on your iPad thanks to the release of the Barefoot World Atlas. This fun app is a great way to teach kids all about the world in which they live, and may even provide a few fun facts for grownups as well.
Navigating the atlas is as simple as dragging a finger across the screen and using the pinch zoom to get a close look at places of interest. As you fly down into the countries and regions you can tap on icons that teach you all about the people, places and animals that make up the area, and get a better sense of what’s beyond your front door.
The atlas was created and narrated by BBC Presenter Nick Crane, in conjunction with Touch Press and England’s Royal Geographic Society. It’s a beautiful, entertaining way to start teaching kids how to think globally and learn all they can in an increasingly interconnected world.
