Trains - Byron BartonSpring 2013 Mobile Apps
From the opening screen, the train is ready to go. Using simple clear images, objects that can be moved, read-aloud text, and elegant shifts in sound perspective, young train watchers can see and hear words used in context. Here is a steam engine puffing smoke. The caboose is last. Electric trains have wires.
Listen carefully as the workers are moved along the track, watch how the scene changes when passengers seats are changed. When one car is moved to pass another, a horn honks in warning. In an exquisite age-appropriate lesson in safety, no vehicles can be moved across the tracks at the railroad crossing. Trains is an example of beautifully executed child powered learning.
