Learnia covers Math (common core) and Spelling for grade levels 1, 2 and 3.
Learnia uses state-of-the-art graphics and modern game design ideas to make learning a lot more interesting.
Kids explore and learn in their own way and at their own pace.
The land of Learnia consists of a number of islands, each with a distinct feel. Each island contains one grade year of spelling or math. A path meanders from island to island, giving kids a sense of progress as they learn. This path is blocked by skill stones. When kids master a skill stone, it steps aside and the next segment of the path opens up.
A path meanders through the land of Learnia.
Each skill stone contains three exercises and a final challenge. The skill stone can also contain lectures. Children can attempt the challenge straight away or practice first using the exercises. This puts kids in charge of their learning and allows them to quickly work through material they already know. Skill stones can be mastered to a bronze, silver or gold level enticing kids to try hard or come back later to 'nail it.'

A friendly owl named Waddle joins kids on their journey. As children open up more of the path, Waddle will collect pick-ups along the way. Kids earn coins. Each island has animals that can be purchased as well as food for them. As they progress kids will fill up the world of Learnia with 'pets' that they will want to feed. This creates an incentive for them to pick up their tablet, feed their pets and do some learning while they are at it.
