Mobile Education Store is excited to announce that ConversationBuilderTeen has been named as the best social skills app of 2012 by Technology in Special Education, a website devoted to finding the best educational apps on iTunes. Technology in Education has been featured in the New York Times and is considered one of the top websites for parents to find out about apps.
There are only three apps in the social skills category and only eleven across all categories, so it is a very exclusive list. We are very pleased that such a well known website thinks so highly of our products.
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 “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.
