“MINNEAPOLIS, July 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — As school lets out for summer, families are beginning to plan summer day trips and travel. A recent survey reveals an increase in family travel this summer with “86 percent of respondents planning a leisure trip” and more and more parents seeking an educational experience for their families.
Today with smartphones and tablets, there are hundreds of distractions at kids’ fingertips, making it increasingly difficult to keep them engaged in educational environments. Parents are spending big bucks to expose their families to the world’s top cultural and historical sites only to find their kids disengaged and bored. Help is on the way this summer with the launch of History Hero – the first app to use an interactive video game to teach history to children and teenagers as they tour some of the world’s top historical sites.”
