[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Nahla vs LittleDee today is pleased to introduce Itots Sight & Sound Flashcard Creator HD 1.0 for iPad, their new Education app for young children that challenges them to identify an illustration on a flashcard. Each card has a text caption under the picture, and kids can hear the answer aloud by touching the illustration. The app comes with hundreds of built-in cards and allows the user to create custom flashcards and voice recordings. Parents can make cards with photos of relatives, pets, toys, and nearby locations to help the child learn the names of the most important things in their immediate environment. Cards from the Itots Sight & Sound Flashcards library can be set to speak flashcards aloud in any one of three English dialects: American English, British English, or Australian English.
Flashcards are among the most effective and widely used learning tools known, regularly used by students from preschool to medical school. Much learning involves understanding, but fundamental learning of basic facts relies entirely on association and memorization. Flashcards facilitate this invaluable rote learning by presenting a single question at a time, in a playful, repeating quiz of identifications that are soon learned by heart.
Itots Sight & Sound Flashcard Creator HD is a powerful educational tool that takes the basic premise of flashcards - instantaneous recognition through repetition - and expands on it in three important ways. First, the app offers an expandable, built-in library covering the Alphabet, Numbers, Animals, Foods, and many other topics. Second, parents may set the read aloud function to any one of the three major English dialects, so that kids may learn the pronunciations that are correct in their locality. And third, parents can take any image or photograph and make a custom flashcard that can be added to the built-in library.
This option offers limitless possibilities, as parents can invent personalized categories for their child, such as: Pets We Know, Kids Who Are Our Friends, Dangerous Things We Do Not Touch, Flowers in Our Backyard, Our Favorite Cartoon Characters, Names of Kitchen Appliances, Reading a Clock, Adding Numbers, Foreign Words, etc. In addition to user-supplied images, custom flashcards can include any voice as an accompaniment.

An educational tool that can help teach kids their Alphabet, Numbers, and Animals, the app can also be part of any parent's individualized educational program for their child. Educational research has proven that daily practice with flashcards is one of the most efficient means currently available of learning basic facts. The brain processes and consolidates each day's practice during sleep, and the subject gradually achieves complete mastery over the identification of every card. Itots Sight & Sound Flashcards allows users to randomize flashcards from the entire library, or display only cards on one topic.
