A fun rhyming kids game that will also improve their math skills

According to the National Association for the Education of Young Children, the math skills that students learn at a young age build a foundation for future learning endeavors and can be a good indicator of whether or not young people will be able to meet and overcome new challenges as they mature. An article by noted 'out of the box' author Malcolm Gladwell a few years ago suggests that the more advanced a child is when first entering school, the more they improve exponentially throughout their whole education. Engaging children to the concept of math early on in their life is more ...  More

Find all the kids activities that are going on around you in a flash

Now that the local newspaper has pretty much bitten the dust, it's hard work finding out all the activities that are going on in your local area. It's not so bad for adults because most of our extracurricular activities - whether they be movies, bands or outdoor events - are advertised reasonably heavily. Entertainment for kids, on the other hand, can be quite low-key with organizers often dependent on word of mouth to get people to come along.  More

Keep an eye on your kids' online activities without having to look over their shoulder

There's little doubt that the iPad and tablets in general have completely changed the way we think and work these days. For kids, in particular, they have opened up a whole new world of entertainment and education, the like of which we've never seen before. There are apps being put on the market now that would never have seen the light of day if there wasn't a tablet to view them on. Typically though, there's a downside to most new things. For a start, how do we know that the things our children are viewing on the Internet are safe and appropriate without looking over their shoulder every ...  More

Wow! There are 3D animals in my room!

Most of the apps we review here at FeedMyApp are good, solid and dependable and they do exactly what you'd think they would do.

Teach your children well with this neat educational game

There are many many games out there that purport to be educational language applications for kids but most are a bit of a let down when it comes right down to it. Some are barely educational and others lack that something special that sparks some interest with the child. Fantasy Tidy Up! is a new kids game for iPad that has a functioning storyline, beautiful graphics and a simple philosophy. It uses text-to-speech technology to teach small kids English vocabulary by having them move objects and put them in their right place in the room. The app 'speaks' in different sentences and gives ...  More

The new, free way of learning for teachers, students and parents

It was interesting to read recently that one of the first things that will change as a result of the debate involving Charter and Public Schools in New York will be the opening up of resource material to everyone for free. If all goes according to plan, resource and reference material will be available for everyone to see instead of being the reference library for those who could afford it. Knowing how most governing bodies enjoy their rhetoric and tend to drag their feet when it comes to putting their money where their mouth is, we'll have to wait and see if and when that happens. ...  More

Use strategy, timing and slingshot action to shoot down the Villain walls

Someone asked me the other day what my favorite toy was when I was a kid. I think they were expecting me to say Lego or board game of some sorts. The truth of the matter though was that I loved my marbles. I spent hours making up games using those shiny glass balls with their beautiful decorated insides and I still get a thrill from holding a fine specimen in my hand. But we are in the next century now and things have moved on exponentially. So much so that I can now play marbles on my smartphone. Losing Your Marbles is a beautiful looking and very colorful slingshot game for iOS that ...  More

A better way of business training and learning

Its a strange thing but, according to the figures, nearly half of the people that use online Learning Management Systems (or LMS) are dissatisfied with what they get out of them. That's probably down to the fact that the people that buy those systems for their workers aren't generally the ones who actually use them. If you really want your employees to engage with learning and development and really push themselves, their peers and their organization, you need a system that they feel was built for them, their goals and their ambitions. Pathfinder turns the LMS concept on its head by ...  More

Eliminate grammatical mistakes with automatic and easy checking

Let's get this straight from the start. I'm big on good grammar. Anything that can be done to improve the writing capabilities of our students has got to be a good thing. If you are a reader, you will know that there is a big difference between the quality of writing of people like Bill Bryson, Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and John Grisham compared with lesser writing mortals like James Patterson and E.L. James. While we are not suggesting that a grammar checker will propel your prose to those heady heights, Grammar Checker Academic HD is an iOS education and language application that will ...  More
