So begins Rival Schools’ first story, The Story of Kalkalilh, in their three-part book series of digital story apps for kids inspired by Canadian Indigenous Peoples oral histories.
What is exciting and different about these reading apps is the focus on creating an accessible and interactive reading experience for children while incorporating the traditional oral histories of a few Indigenous cultures in Canada. Melding digital technology with oral histories — yeah, that is a pretty cool idea.
