ConversationBuilder™ (Patent Pending) is a Conversation Simulator designed to help elementary aged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings.

The auditory pattern of conversation is presented in a visual format to help students recognize and master the flow of conversation.

Students learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation.

Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilder™ promotes development of this skill in a fun and engaging way.

  • Visual interface to learn the pattern of conversation
  • Students record their half of the conversation
  • Group and one-on-one conversation settings
  • Student can initiate or respond to conversations
  • Conversations can be 4 or 8 exchanges long
  • Student name, age, primary interest and city of residence are used in conversations to personalize play
  • Student recordings are interlaced with pre-recorded audio to create complete conversations
  • Conversations may be archived and emailed
  • Up to 160 distinct conversations available

I see Conversation Builder and Conversation Builder Deluxe both available in the App Store – both the same price. Is there any difference between these apps? If so, can you enumerate? Thanks!

[...] they intend to target.  I don’t find the apps to be glitchy or problematic in any way.  Conversation Builder continues to be my favorite of the apps simply because there are so few apps that specifically [...]

Dave,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you on this. Your message slipped through the cracks. There is no difference between ConversationBuilder and ConversationBuilderDeluxe. There used to be, but now they are the same. Hope this helps.

Why on earth is the ipad app more than twice the cost of the iphone app?

Kyle

Dimitra,

The iPad version actually costs less than the iPhone version. In the iPhone version, you get 40 conversations and then you have the option to purchase 20 conversation modules for $5 each. There are 6 of these modules available. The iPad version has all the extra modules included in the base app. You do not need to purchase them. I made this change because in app purchases are problematic for schools.

Question RE conversation builder:
Does mastery of 20 exchange conversations mean at the 8 exchange level??

I am a speech-language pathologist and behaviour analyst. I would like to review the conversation builder and conversation builder – teen to assist a client’s family in selecting which one to purchase. I will probably also buy both or at least one myself, but I would like to have more information first. Do you offer a lite version for trials or an option for professionals to obtain trial versions for a lower price?

Thank you,
Sari
