i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating!: Written iPad App Review
I’ve always been a fan of using technology as a learning tool. A well-designed device such as the iPad is incredibly intuitive, so much so that I’ve watched toddlers learn how to use one in almost no time at all. This, combined with apps that are geared toward teaching, makes for an amazing educational resource.
i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating!, developed by Tribal Nova, is a brand-new interactive learning app designed for young children. Filled with games and tools for parents, this is an app that can’t be passed up!
Concept and Functionality:
i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating! seeks to educate youngsters about healthy eating choices by using interactive games. Children not only learn important skills regarding food, but also build skills in math, science, literacy, and more. One thing I love the most about the app is that it’s incredibly easy to learn your way around it. It’s designed for children ages 3-6, so they shouldn’t have a problem navigating from game to game.
There are three games to play, each with its own lesson. The first game asks your child to help feed hungry bears using the edible items from the choices given. Each time they press a food to drag it to the bear’s basket, Bo says the name of the object out loud. The second game involves combining foods from each food group into different potions, and the third game requires the child to help penguins celebrate their birthday by creating balanced meals using foods from food groups.
One of the best things about i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating! is that it was designed in collaboration with educational and child development experts. What this means is that you’re getting a quality app that puts the success of your child’s learning above everything else.
Along with three fun games for your child to play, i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating! features a revolutionary way for parents, teachers, and tutors to track a child’s progress. The app can generate a recommended learning path based on performance, which is something that’s almost unheard-of in a children’s app. The app will also adjust difficulty levels based on your child’s performance, so you won’t have to worry about your child becoming frustrated with the app.
Another useful feature i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating! offers is the option to compare your child’s statistics with others of the same age. This allows parents, teachers, and tutors to gain insight as to how well the child is progressing.
Lastly, your child can earn 27 different rewards and medals while playing i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating!. I was really happy to see that something like this was available because I know how much more fun a game can be when there are cool rewards involved. Hopefully these achievements will encourage your child to continue learning about healthy nutrition choices.
i Learn With Bo: Nutrition and Healthy Eating! is free to download from the App Store and is universally compatible with both iPad and iPhone. The free version is limited, though, and parents can unlock the full version of the app for only $2.99. Considering how wonderful the app is and what it can do for your child, I definitely recommend giving it a try!
