Mobile Education Store is excited to announce that ConversationBuilderTeen is a finalist for Best Special Education App of 2012 by SmartAppsForKids. There are only five finalists, so it is an honor to just make this list. The finalists are selected from the Smart Apps For Kids staff, who have reviewed thousands of apps. The final winners will be announced in February, so stay tuned!
ConversationBuilderTeen is a virtual conversation simulator for teenaged kids. It is designed to help kids practice how to have conversations with their peers and how to respond to common situations. What makes ConversationBuilderTeen engaging is that students record their half of the conversation and listen to the other half. Once the conversation is finished, we interlace the student recordings with the pre-recorded peer responses to form a complete conversation. The students then can hear themselves have a conversation with a peer 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. There are 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 part of Mobile Education Store’s award winning suite of educational apps. MES has won developer of the year awards for both 2011 and 2012 and has over 30 individual app awards to its credit.
