Tech Terra represented a variety of educational products including Bluebee Pals at the 2018 Chicago ISTE Show on June 27-30. This is Bluebee Pals third year participating with Tech Terra and were thrilled to part of the ever-growing technology based educational tools that motivate and engage children to learn. Teaching for mainstream and special needs is challenging in today’s increasing reliance on technology. Bluebee Pals create a more humanoid environment bringing to life app based curriculum on Ipads and Smart Boards for children 3-8. In April, Kayle Concepts launched their upgraded version of Bluebee Pals with more robotic interaction and introducing they’re own educational/life skills app. The New Bluebee Pal app was a big hit at the ISTE Show as educators were drawn to the exciting Bluebee House where children can immerse themselves in activities in five life skills’ rooms and play 9 educational mini-games.https://www.bluebeepals.com In addition, Bluebee Pals pair with all apps with a narrative providing endless education and entertainment for all mainstream and special needs children.
