Some people train dogs. I'm a dog who trains people.
Meet Bouncy! Bouncy the People Trainer’s You Can Learn is a fun and engaging program designed to develop the mindsets needed to persevere and succeed in learning for four, five, and six-year-olds.
Bouncy is an irresistible three-legged dog who models strength, humor and resilience in the face of challenges. Kids learn from Bouncy that if they care enough, believe in themselves, try hard and keep trying when things get tough, they can learn to read and count, control their behavior, and make friends -- regardless of how many challenges they might face.
To create a sense of ownership and agency, young learners choose eyes, hair, skin color and clothes (including dress up costumes) to create a life-like avatar from 2600 possible combinations. Their avatar then stars in an animated cartoon story and appears throughout the program to model and help them internalize key concepts.
You Can Learn School Edition is for classroom use and can be unlocked by licensed users. More than a toy, You Can Learn School Edition is the first in a series of engaging, science-based, social-emotional training apps with parent resources and data management built-in.
