The Checkpoint learning platform launched its fourth iteration this month.
The latest version, titled Checkpoint 4, is designed for kids 4-13.
Checkpoint says it’s teaching kids to use their “likes and comments” to help them better understand what’s happening in their world.
The platform has already been featured on CBS News’ “60 Minutes” and “CBS This Morning.”
Checkpoint’s founders, Aaron and Melissa Clark, told CBS News they are thrilled to see their first “game-changing” game on the playground.
“It is really cool to see how the children are responding to it,” Aaron Clark said.
Checkpoints can be downloaded for free, and parents can opt to pay for access to their children’s games.
CheckPoint 4 has been downloaded more than 4 million times and has been rated 4.5 stars by parents.
CheckPoints have become so popular, CheckPoints.com now has over 2 million customers, according to CheckPoints founder Aaron Clark.
Check points are a fun way for kids to learn to interact with their surroundings, while also being able to see what’s going on around them, according CheckPoints chief operating officer Melissa Clark.
Clark says kids are often drawn to learning new things because it makes them feel alive, even if they’re not really sure what it means to be alive.
Check Points creators say they hope the platform will become an integral part of their kids’ lives.
