Reviews of LearningWorks for Kids
I came across LW4K at ISTE 2014 and upon reviewing, discovered that they have tons of great content. The educational component associated with the game and app playbooks really makes me more knowledgeable about skill building techniques for my future child. It’s also fun to see the psychological science behind some very addicting games like Minecraft and Angrybirds and to learn that I'm not just wasting my time pouring hours into these games but training my brain. For the sheer amount of content alone and the good reviews, the site is worth checking out especially for the low price of a couple bucks a month!
Learning Works for Kids is a fantastic way to monitor usage of technology for kids, while helping them improve cognitive skills. The program has a wonderful list of games and apps, and scoring devices including a "Fun Score" and a "Brain Grade." You can easily choose games that benefit your child, student, or family member. A "Play Diet" can be created depending on the child's interest and weaknesses. Learning Works is a fun way for kids to build their cognitive skills. For example games can improve organization skills, self-awareness, mathematics, and reading and kids don't even realize they are learning while having fun. I highly recommend people signing up for this program!
