[prMac.com] Bedford, Canada - EverAge Consulting releases Story Wheel app for the iPhone and iPad. Story Wheel is a cooperative story creation application for the iPhone and iPad, designed to work in conjunction with one of the most powerful computers in the world - The human mind. It will help you create stories, improve your child's cognitive abilities and most importantly, have fun!
Children with underdeveloped imaginations are more prone to many developmental problems. An unfostered imagination in a child belongs to an unnourished mind. Though we give our children food, water and love, how often do we fuel and ignite their imaginations?
"Storytelling stimulates the imagination. Recent studies have shown that children who lack imagination are not only prone to failure in school but are far more susceptible to violence." - Fredericks, Linda and Allison Cox. Storytelling In The Classroom.
Story Wheel wants to keep those imaginations vibrant. It wants to get you and your children inventing stories together. Get them thinking, creating and speaking. In the future it will be these children who are confident in speech, complex thought and social competence that will shine like the heroes they are.
To start your story, spin the Story Wheel and land on an image - now it's your turn to make up part of a story with that image. You'll have 30 seconds to record your voice as you add to the story. Each page of the story lists the speaker and shows an animated image that was spun. This positive reinforcement will captivate your children, and encourage them to tell even more stories. Your children will pick this as their top game for the iPhone or iPad.
