16 Dec Educational App’s for your Children
When used well for educational purposes, technology can help create opportunities for more active and meaningful learning experiences for your child.
At KingKids we have an iPad in each educational environment predominantly for signing your child in and out for the day of care, and for sharing photographs and learning of your child’s day.
However we also like to incorporate technology into our curriculum, for example researching the questions and ideas of your children such as why do Dinosaurs have horns? Why do all clouds not have rain? and most recently, How is chocolate made? Together we use technology to research and discover new learning.
So why not share some of our favourite educational apps that you too can download to support your child’s learning at home.
