Mobile Education Store is pleased to announce that our ConversationBuilderTeen social skills app has been named one of the 12 best special needs apps of 2012 by Teachers With Apps. This is the fourth award CBTeen has won this year. Teachers With Apps is one of the best known websites for teachers looking for information on special needs apps of all kinds. We are excited that such a well known organization thinks so highly of ConversationBuilderTeen as to include it in this exclusive list.
ConversationBuilderTeen is a virtual conversation simulator designed specifically for teenaged kids. It helps 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 “Builder Series” of educational apps. Mobile Education Store has won over 30 awards over the last 3 years, included developer of the year on 2011 and 2012.
