This review of Mobile Education Store’s LanguageBuilder speech therapy appwas written by Rachel Jones. Rachel is a pro lithic blogger. She has written 30 reviews of speech and language apps this year.
She always does a nice job explaining how the app works and how it might be used in therapy. She also includes things she would like added in the future. I have incorporated many of her ideas in updates of apps she has reviewed. She has many positive things to say about LanguageBuilder. On top of that, she is raffling off a promo code. Stop by her blog to enter!
LanguageBuilder is designed to help kids learn how to many inference and build a narrative. Students are presented a photograph, and then asked to record a sentence about that photograph. There are 250 photographs broken down among 10 themes. The student selects one of themes to play. LanguageBuilder has three levels of hints to help students come up with ideas for their sentences. Hint level 1 gives the student an almost complete sentence with just a few words missing. Hint level 2 gives the student only a few words at the beginning of a possible sentence. Hint level 3 gives them an audio hint instead of a text hint. The photographs are high quality and age appropriate, and the record/playback feature is a big hit with kids. LanguageBuilder is a great stepping stone for our more advanced apps, StoryBuilder and ConversationBuilder.
LanguageBuilder is a member of Mobile Education Store’s award winning “Builder Series” of educational apps. MES has won over 20 app awards and has been named Educational App Developer of the Year multiple times.
