Parents and K-6 students/teachers in the U.S. are already familiar with the popular math learning app, Boddle. AT&T is now announcing a partnership with the app’s developers to bring “new in-app features” and other additions, courtesy of AT&T 5G.
The carrier further announced that the newly released ‘Pet Battles’ game within the Boddle app is free to play. AT&T is also bringing a new augmented reality (AR) feature into the game. However, this is available only to customers with an AT&T 5G compatible device. The game involves characters and puzzles spread across the environment, thus encouraging kids to have some fun while learning.
“Gamified learning is ushering in the next generation of education, and keeping kids connected will be key,” said Glenn Couper, Assistant Vice President, 5G Product & Innovation, AT&T. “Boddle’s customized learning platform brings an immediate benefit for students today, making learning more interactive, interesting, accessible and fun. We’re proud to help them unlock the connected learning of tomorrow that will reshape education as we know it.”
Boddle will contribute video lessons to AT&T’s ‘The Achievery’ digital learning platform
Boddle arrived on the scene in 2018 as a gamified math learning app. The app’s developers received a massive boost after getting a $1 million investment from AT&T in 2019 as part of its Aspire Accelerator program. So the partnership between the two companies is not new.
The app’s popularity has exploded since the pandemic as children were forced to adapt to virtual learning. But the app continues to remain popular as developers add exciting games and virtual activities to keep the kids engaged.
“Our team at Boddle is excited to continue expanding learning opportunities for kids of all demographics through this AT&T 5G collaboration that will open the possibilities of where and how kids learn and really bring math to life through AR,” said Clarence Tan, Co-Founder of Boddle Learning.
Boddle will also contribute video lessons and activities to ‘The Achievery,’ AT&T’s newly launched digital learning platform. The carrier undertakes other learning-related programs through the AT&T Connected Learning initiative.
In other AT&T news, the carrier is bumping the prices of some legacy plans starting June 1. This mainly impacts a handful of unlimited plans launched a few years ago. So if you’re concerned about losing those plan benefits, make sure you get in touch with the carrier right away.
