Straylings Oldhaven – an educational mobile app – is beyond a learning game; it is a mastery game. It builds fluency in competency skills required to reduce cognitive load when tackling problem-solving tasks. In the game, levelling up requires the completion of an earlier task through repeated trial and error attempts. Children learn through continuous small improvements, and that becomes a learning strategy they take forwards with them. They develop a mindset that failure is an inevitable part of the path to discovery.
Everyone can use the Straylings free app to improve their skills in the Explore mode. For those with no access to education, we provide quality teaching resources that build mastery of crucial skills in solving problems and collaborating with peers.
The intrinsic reward of completing a rescue coupled with an extrinsic reward of a powered-up collector card makes Straylings a unique learning opportunity. Power scores are increased through persistence and resilience (failing forward) as these are contributors to the eventual fluency (speed) that the learner gains.
Reward Your Children for Closing Their Competency Gaps in Numeracy and Literacy Skills
Explore the world of skill-powers! Watch your children embark on a journey and discover their full potential.
Currently, many children miss out in classroom discussions, problem-solving tasks and project work because they lack competency in the skills required to complete the tasks and collaborate with others. Straylings provides a means to address the competency gaps.
In a well-designed game like Straylings, failure loses its power to discourage. Confidence and competence naturally build as they level-up, and mastery (fluency of recall) becomes a rewarding experience.
