The newly launched app for children, All the World, was created by four documentary filmmakers and playfully explains how the world works and explores topics in science, nature, art and culture. Geared for children ages 4 to 10 years old, the app explores everything from how to care for a pet to how to make a shirt. In light of the pandemic, timely videos exploring emotions like sadness and anger have become teachable tools for parents with children experiencing an array of emotions while home. The app can be accessed at www.alltheworld.com.
Inspired by the educational culture of progressive schools in California, All the World videos nurture social emotional learning (SEL) and apply systems thinking. In collaborating with educators and child psychology experts, the videos motivate children to understand and manage their emotions, show empathy for others and make responsible decisions. Through systems thinking, the videos encourage critical thinking and problem solving. Much like Mr. Rogers, the filmmakers/hosts guide the live-action videos with sincere compassion, visual intrigue and lighthearted fun, while challenging their audience to grow.
The entire video content and app itself are available in English, Spanish, Mandarin, Japanese and Korean, providing an effective second language learning tool for viewers of any age.
The show releases a new episode every Saturday morning via the All The World app. All The World is currently offering a 14 day free trial as well as a free option on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Subscriptions to watch all future weekly shows and access the entire video library are offered for only $1.99 per month or $11.99 annually. Learn more at www.alltheworld.com.
