This week’s reviews focus on apps that blend technology with real-world learning.
Color Uncovered is a completely engaging app with interactivity, vibrant images that pique your interest and ton of cool facts about color. Over twenty pages present fun facts about color. The whole family can settle in with this app, allowing the colors on the screen to trick the mind. There is informative text and explanations provided in the app. They are not written for young children and there is no speech option. An app to use alongside your child, with content that’s interesting for adults too!
Monster Physics helps your child learn physics and so much more. Spend time on the “learn” page where parents and kids learn physics vocabulary together. Move through the missions, starting with the “tutorial” level that introduces necessary strategies and tools. There are 5 levels that can be accessed any time. Enough content is available for a long shelf life! “Free build” is a personal favorite for watching kids invent to learn. On top of all the physics, this app cultivates innovation, strategy and persistence which are not skills to be neglected. Try the lite version to see what we mean!
DIY App – Creative Community for Kids inspires the creative genius in your child. This is not your typical educational app. There are no games or questions asked of your child. This free app, and connected website, enables your child to build, create, and develop their own creative projects to share with family and friends all through this one site. You will need to sign up for the free service. Parents are thoughtfully built into the whole process with a separate log-in and monitoring notifications. Kids are encouraged as friends and family view and add stickers to the images of their projects. Happy creating!
