This is great review of Mobile Education Store’s new ConversationBuilderTeen pragmatic language app. It was written by SpeechTimeFun. SpeechTimeFun was voted one of the top speech pathology blogs of 2012, and it is well deserved. They always do a great job with their reviews of apps. In this review, they take the reader through the initial setup of play. They show how to set up a student, parent password, one on one conversation, and group conversations. They have 13 images from the app to give you an excellent picture of how a conversation proceeds along while it is being recorded.
The review is worth the time to read all by itself, but even better, they are sponsoring a drawing for a free copy! Visit their blog to register.
ConversationBuilderTeen is a virtual conversation simulator designed specifically for teenaged kids. At it’s core, it helps kids understand pragmatic language and how the back and forth flow of conversations works. What makes ConversationBuilderTeen so powerful is that students are not passive participants in the conversation, they are actively engaged in them. They listen to what others say and then they get to record their answers. Because we are re-creating a real conversation for the students, they gain a deeper understanding of how conversations are supposed to flow. In the end, they get to hear themselves have a real conversation, with all the wrong answers and wrong tone stripped away. They hear themselves have a conversation in real time as it is supposed to sound. Not only is this incredibly motivating for the students, but it teaches them the basics of pragmatic language in a way that they can rapidly understand. ConversationBuilder has over 300 conversations broken into 8 themes. We cover all the normal teen obsessions like sports, summer, and entertainment, but we also cover all the unpleasant things teen must deal with such as bullying, peer pressure and relationships.
ConversationBuilderTeen is the latest edition of Mobile Education Store’s award winning “Builder Series” of education apps. Mobile Education Store has won over twenty app awards and has been voted developer of the year twice.
