In Peru the educational indicators related to the indigenous communities are mostly faulty, caused it for diverse factors among those that highlight the lack of educational contents and even the limited number and absence of educational. An applicative mobile offline has been developed, for mobile devices with S.O Android (cell phones and tablets), with basic content for initial education (and first grades of the primary one). This applicative was conceptualized as a tool playfull, interactive, based on sounds of the images. In this process they participated educational and members of the communities Kukama-Kukamiria of Iquitos. As part of the validation processes, a comparison test has been developed among the employment of the applicative and the use of the traditional teaching that it is used in the communities Kukama-Kukamiria. Favorable results have been achieved regarding the use of the applicative like tools for teaching in the classroom, leave it has demonstrated that the use of this applicative overcomes a series of limitations of the service educational Peruvians in native communities Kukama-Kukamiria. © 2019 IEEE.
