Interactive Telling TimeSpring 2012 Mobile Apps
Learning to tell time is an essential life skill. However, it can be challenging and even frustrating for children. Interactive Telling Time is the answer to this dilemma. This app is not only educational, but it is also amusing, easy-to-use, engaging and visually appealing. On the main menu, which is customizable with music and a variety of accurate clocks, players choose a variety of tasks: Set the Time, What's the Time, Play Puzzle (a clock to which the pieces and numbers must be added), Take the Quiz, Stop the Clock, or Learn the Clock. During all of these activities and games, incorrect answers are met with encouraging words and additional chances. Correct answers earn stars which accumulate toward new fish friends in the player's virtual aquarium. The positive reinforcement for correct answers not to mention the lack of emphasis on incorrect answers, encourages children's excitement and enthusiasm for learning time-telling skills. Its varying activities and difficulty levels add to its longevity. This app has earned a permanent spot on my iPad!
