|Advancement in technology has not only influenced adults, but children are equally tech-savvy from a very young age. EdWorkz, a Sydney based enterprise, has integrated this interest to enhance the maths learning experience of children. They have partnered with English Premier League champions Chelsea FC to launch the Chelsea FC Maths for Kids app. The application will be launched in a number of international markets that include the UK, USA, India, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Australia and China.
Chelsea boasts over 500 million fans globally, including many young supporters across the world. The Chelsea FC Maths for Kids app provides the perfect platform to engage these supporters, and enhance their multiplication skills.
According to the OECD PISA Survey 2012, performances of students in mathematics have greatly declined over the past 10 years, especially in countries like the United States, United Kingdom and Australia. This inspired EdWorkz to delve on mobile technology and create an app that can be used actively across every platform such as smartphones and tablets by both Android as well as iOS users.
Since its inception in 2014, the company has taken an initiative to develop and deliver a broad range of mobile-friendly educational tools and resources. These are intended to make learning fun for children. The innovative maths learning app of EdWorkz meets all necessary attributes, targeting children within the age group 7-12 years who are learning their mathematics multiplication tables.
‘Empowering Young Minds’, EdWorkz follows this notion by providing information via latest technology and giving every child a chance to excel in their education through interactive and engaging content. The Chelsea FC Maths for Kids app is available in six languages and can communicate both vocally and visually. This easy-to-follow application gives kids the opportunity to take up challenges through quizzes and grow their ability to understand various challenges of mathematics.
“Children are extremely tech savvy. EdWorkz thought of developing something that is educational as well as engaging, and tie it to a cool brand. So, multiplication tables app is our contribution to gear up their knowledge and make them realize how interesting mathematics is. Additionally, we are extremely delighted to have one of the greatest football clubs in the world, Chelsea FC, work with us to deliver something very unique and fun to the Chelsea FC family of fans in multiple countries”, said Iggy Jovanovic, co-founder of Edworkz.
This launch sees the app available to download on android devices, with an iOS version to follow soon. The app boasts a user-friendly design, perfect for young blues, allowing them to work independently and boost their confidence. Parents can be assured that the content is safe and suitable, with no in-app purchases or third party ads.
The current Premier League champions, Chelsea were UEFA Champions League winners in 2012, following that success by lifting the UEFA Europa League trophy in 2013. Founded in 1905, Chelsea is London’s most central football club, based at the iconic 42,000-capacity Stamford Bridge stadium.
Nicknamed ‘The Blues’, Chelsea are four-time English Premier League champions and have also lifted the FA Cup seven times, the Football League Cup five times, the UEFA Cup Winners’ Cup twice, the UEFA Super Cup once and the Football League Championship once, in 1955. The Europa League triumph saw Chelsea become the first English club to win all three major UEFA competitions, and the first club ever to hold both the Champions League and Europa League at the same time.
In addition to possessing some of the world’s most recognisable players, Chelsea is coached by Jose Mourinho, one of the most successful figures in the game.
Chelsea has also invested in its future with a state-of-the-art Academy and training centre in Cobham, Surrey. Since its opening in 2007, the club has reached six FA Youth Cup finals, lifting the trophy four times and in 2015 lifted the UEFA Youth League for the first time as well as the Youth Cup.
Additionally, the Chelsea Foundation boasts one of the most extensive community initiatives in sport, working in 30 countries around the world, helping improve the lives of more than 900,000 children and young people each year.
