Tablets and smartphones are increasingly becoming the primary tool for learning among kids. The touch experience fosters active learning, engaging students by allowing them to manipulate objects on the screen and know more about stuff around them. Everyday Words from Nimble Minds is a learning app for Android that lets your kids touch and play with objects as they learn new words.
Everyday Words include up to 12 environments that your child encounters every day such as a bedroom, bathroom, classroom, park, and more. With the learn mode, kids can load an environment and click on an object to reveal what they are. It even includes smooth voice transitions so that children can learn the pronunciation faster. Another mode is the play mode where the student is asked to tap the object that is described by the question.
As the app name suggests, kids are able to learn the things that they see everyday. This allows them to be in touch with their environment faster, know the relationships of different objects, and learn their existence in relation to these objects – hopefully sparking a greater thirst for learning.
Everyday Words is intended for children ages 2-8. This app is great for parents who would like to leverage their phones and tablets into powerful learning tools.
