This is a kinda neat format for a review of our TenseBuilder verb app. The review was done by BridgingApps.com. BridgingApps have put together a wonderful website that makes it easy for parents and teachers to find special needs apps that address specific needs. They literally have hundreds of categories with the top apps for each category. You really can’t go wrong with this site.
There are several screens for the review, one with screen shots, one showing the appropriate age for a number of skills (auditory, cognitive, fine motor, language, and visual), a third that lists a number of educational attributes that can be found in the app as well as their full written review. There is also a place for user feedback. I can’t imagine how you could pack more information about an app into such a simple interface.
TenseBuilder employs movie quality animations to teach tense. We take the kids through an entire timeline, which gives the students a much deeper understanding of Tense markers and why they are important. Because we are using video, we are able to tackle the more difficult verbs (do, go, come), that don’t have as concrete an action associated with them as other verbs (run, jump, walk). These verbs can be difficult for many children to fully comprehend, but they become clear with the animations. Combine that with a lot of humor in the animations themselves, and you have an app that kids want to continue playing and teaches tense in a way not possible with flash cards or worksheets.
TenseBuilder is the newest addition to Mobile Education Store’s award winning “Builder Series” of education apps. MES was named 2011’s Educational App Developer of the Year by Teachers With Apps and they have won over 20 app awards over the last three years.
