Being the pre-teens that they are, 5th graders oftentimes get distracted by other things that are detrimental to their learning development especially in this era of technology. So it’s more than fortunate for parents to have app developers take note of these problem by integrating technology and education. In this sense, although there won’t be any changes to the nature of the boring subjects we’ve all loved to hate, a different kind of technique on teaching might do the trick on making students embrace science wholeheartedly.
It’s not enough for a kid to have numerous books and all sorts of educational materials because if there’s not enough motivation and interest, it’ll just be a lost cause. I remember having moments during my elementary years when looking at my piled up books were enough to make me fall asleep right there and then. And the tempting atmosphere of turning on the television set to drown myself with Discovery Channel most often than not, wins. Needless to say, learning should not just concentrate on books alone because technology can help a lot. It’s just a matter of finding the right avenues of technology to take.
With that comes AbiTalk, an exemplary app development company which mixes technology and education seamlessly. Their educational applications are not just for the proficiency of children, but for teachers and parents as well.
AbiTalk’s reading comprehension apps are perfect for parents with multiple children and teachers with a handful of students. Aside from the pre-entered twenty lessons about science that are discussed in the 5th year of primary education, users can add more topics to the list and create their own set of questions as well. In books, one lesson might eat up a chapter but in AbiTalk’s 5th Grade Science Reading Comprehension, the topics are summarized into a thousand or two thousand words which makes for a straight to the point learning experience.
Each topic includes ten questions to test the reading comprehension of the students. The questions are not hidden though because they share the same screen as that of the lesson itself.
To make things more interesting, words found on the lesson can be tapped so the readers will know the proper pronunciation of the terms. A great tool to make kids memorize faster.
The questions can be set to be a multiple choice test, true or false, or matching type. When the questions are answered, the app instantly give a thumbs up or a thumbs down depending on the student’s answer. And as all AbiTalk apps are, it remembers a child’s score—just make sure that you’re logged in to their account.
