New Educational Kindle Active Content for Kids

Kindle Math

Earlier today an email appeared in my inbox regarding a press release for a couple of new educational Kindle apps designed for kids, apparently the first of their kind released for the Kindle.

The apps are from a company called Digi Ronin Games. There’s Flash Cards: Basic Math for Kids and Flash Cards: Fractions for Kids. Both sell for $2.99 each.

Here are the product descriptions and press release:

Flash Cards for Kindle

Flash Cards: Fractions helps children learn fractions, percentages, and decimals on Kindle.

Flash Cards: Fractions helps your child learn about fractions by giving them practice doing conversions from fractions to decimals and percentages, and converting from percentages and decimal values back to fractions.There are four difficulty levels designed around common fraction usage. For example, 1/2 and 1/4 conversions are in an easier level than 3/7 conversions.

There are three different modes of play you choose from depending on your confidence with the material: You can use the cards as a study guide to introduce a concept, practice with multiple-choice answers, and progress to fill in the answer directly.

To give students timely feedback, correct answers are acknowledged and incorrect answers are corrected immediately upon submitting an answer. A high score table tracks your ten highest scores to help you track your progress and improvement.
