Guyana’s school children will now have access to the Graphogame‭ ‬ ‭ ‬literacy‭ ‬ ‭ ‬app‭ ‬ ‭ ‬through‭ ‬ ‭ ‬collaborations‭ ‬ ‭ ‬between‭ ‬ ‭ ‬GTT‭ ‬ ‭ ‬ ‭ ‬Business‭ ‬ ‭ ‬Solutions‭ ‬ ‭ ‬& STEMGuyana.

In a press release, it was highlighted that Linguists,‭ ‬ neuropsychologists‭ ‬ ‭ ‬and‭ ‬ ‭ ‬speech‭ ‬ ‭ ‬pathologists‭ ‬ ‭ ‬from‭ ‬ ‭ ‬the‭ ‬ ‭ ‬Finland-based‭ ‬ ‭ ‬GraphoGroup developed Graphogame after 25 years of research. Graphogame is an educational game, with proven efficacy in achieving basic literacy, equal to one-to-one teacher support, among children in the four to nine age group. 

Once downloaded, the free app can be played without connectivity and data. The game can be accessed using the following link www.STEMGuyana.com/graphogame
