According to Adewusi, “My passion for kids learning really kicked into high gear when I started helping my younger Son, a typical digital native, with his schoolwork and learning needs. I quickly noticed he could play games on any phone or tablet but wasn’t interested in learning when it came to schoolwork and conventional learning, he could make up a million procrastination excuses; I am tired, I am sleepy, I want to drink water, I am hungry, etc.
“However, once he was given a smartphone or a tablet, he transformed into a ‘genius’. I also understood that this was a familiar refrain with many parents. It was at the same I also realized that this was an opportunity to teach my Son the way he wanted to learn. In this case, make his learning experience fun, using songs, hands on activities, stories, and games; using the power of technology. All of these led to the development of the 9ijakids learning games.
