App of the Week – National Geographic Magazine for Kids

National Geographic for Kids embraces interactivity in Digital Publishing Suite in order to provide an intuitive reading experience for kids. Targeted at children ages 6+, the iPad magazine uses the following features in order to help children read independently, which is great for kids and their parents! These techniques are advantageous for other publications where the written word cannot be the sole means of communication, such as a magazine designed for an international audience or for the visually impaired.

  • Visual Table of Contents with direct links to articles
  • Scrollable frames to guide their eye toward highlighted features
  • Audio overlays to give the reader directions
