Who are Myles and Ayesha?
Myles and Ayesha are digital friends that help children learn. They were created in 2009 as the faces/bodies of learning technology (embodied pedagogical agents). They marked the commitment to create personalized learning tools, games, books, you name it... for children with skin of a brown hue. They soon simply focused on all children, keeping those of a brown hue especially in mind!
The Black Inventors Match Game was created in 2010 to learn more about the new hype called ‘apps’ at that time. There is a LITE (free) version and a FULL ($0.99) version that receives invention updates.
