Panarea Digital, a premier interactive content developer and production house, participated in a discussion of the future of digital publishing at the Frankfurt Book Fair on Monday October 11, 2011 in Frankfurt, Germany. Emiliano Abramzon, USA Country Manager for Panarea Digital, spoke with other panelists for a session titled “Multi-Lingual Digital Platforms: The future of global children’s publishing”.
Emiliano addressed the evolution of children’s multi-lingual digital books, touching on Panarea Digital’s extensive experience in children’s digital publishing and their recent launch of the “Green is Verde” bilingual app for the iPad. “We are honored to be part of this panel with other thought leaders in the industry,” said Emiliano. “It is exciting to see the momentum around creating multilingual experiences for children. Words come to life on the new platforms through sight, sound, and engaging interactions. At Panarea Digital we are always looking for new ways to bridge pedagogy and technology to enhance the way people learn.”
In addition, Panarea Digital’s co-founder and CEO, Guido Kovalskys, recently spoke at the Liber Digital in the Madrid International Book Fair on October 5th, 2011. The topic was the educational e-book market in Latin America: the situation today and its future development.
About “Green is Verde”
“Green is Verde” is the first in a series of interactive Spanish and English bilingual apps that introduces children to a new language. Two to four year olds will love the animations and coloring activities as they learn names of animals and colors in two languages. The beautiful animations come to life on each page to delight and engage young children; story words light up as they are read, and animal words light up when the animals animate on screen. Readers play with and personalize every animal they learn about in the Draw and Color activity at the end of the book, creating works of art that can be saved to your photo library, printed, or emailed out to friends and family. The “Green is Verde” app is available in the App Store for the iPad, or at www.itunes.com/apps/GreenisVerde.
