“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination”
- Albert Einstein
Have you ever wondered if there is a better way to teach real science to your kids? You are not the only one; many parents find it challenging to explain concepts in physics and how they apply in real life. Explaining concepts related to Forces, Motion, Velocity, Fulcrum and Levers using traditional teaching methods can be quite an effort.
From textbooks to YouTube to iPad to educational websites like the Khan Academy, kids today, have access to a variety of learning tools. How can we effectively leverage these tools to foster better learning?
Kids dislike being passive listeners and are happier learning when they begin to grasp the real essence of the subject.
Science text books can leave your kids bored; and it is up to the teacher to bring the fun back into the subject. A topic like Forces, Motions, and Simple Machines, can be made fun with supporting photos and videos. What is needed, is a multimodal learning approach, that will allow the subject to be taught in many different ways.
We designed the Forces Motion HD app to bring the fun back into learning! Teaching based on play has been shown time and time again to enhance the learning process. Further, through the combination of curated multimedia content and a modular learning model, the app aims to motivate kids to develop a real interest in the subject.
Forces Motion HD is an app that will enhance your kid’s ability to see the connection between the fundamental concepts of physics and their practical applications
Varied modes of learning
Every child is unique, so each one of them needs to be taught differently. A kid that learns by reading, is different from another kid that learns by watching videos. Forces Motion HD offers young learners the freedom to choose their style of learning. The options include - “Read and Learn”, Touch and Learn”, “See and Learn” ,"Watch and Learn”, and finally “Quiz and Learn”.
The app further draws from real world examples to illustrate the concepts. For example: a kid will learn that it is hard pushing against a table without wheels due to the higher friction; if the table has wheels, the friction is reduced.
Deep rooted understanding of the basic fundamentals of science
Forces Motion HD will enable your child delve deeper into the world of physics. This app provides a unique platform to help the kid master the concepts, while having fun. Unlike traditional teaching methods that may have a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, the Forces Motion app lets the kids learn at their own pace, using content they like.
According to a popular science blog “In 2012, a shocking sixty nine percent of American high-school graduates failed to meet college-readiness benchmarks in science.” What can we do to get kids excited about science? Science apps like Forces Motion HD can certainly help! We welcome your comments and feedback.
