Goodnight ABC reinvents the ABCs
July 19, 2012 in Education
[prMac.com] Austin, Texas - Parents everywhere can now feel totally guilt-free about letting their children spend time on the iPad. Quasar Alliance, a new children's App publisher, takes a surprising new twist on the age old practice of teaching children the alphabet with its one-of-a kind iPad App, "Goodnight ABC". This is the first in a series of interactive educational Apps from Quasar Alliance for children ages 2 and up.
Take a ride in the hot air balloon, play a harp, make thunder and rain, visit the circus, lounge in an underwater hotel, even grow a potted plant if you like. The possibilities are endless. Is it a lesson? Is it a game? Kids can't tell the difference. No boring drills, no coaching. With Goodnight ABC play is the only true instructional tool. Children learn letters, letter sounds, numbers, colors, the basic concepts of nature and technology, and never have a dull moment. There are also 26 brightly illustrated pages to color and hundreds of vocabulary words spelled and sounded out.
"For a young child play is so much more than pastime," says Marina Litinsky, PhD in Educational Psychology, one of the creators of Goodnight ABC. "It is mainly through play that children develop such important skills as problem solving, logic, memory, imagination and creativity. Goodnight ABC is a perfect tool to help your child gain valuable knowledge and skills while having loads of fun in the process. It is intuitive, fully interactive, filled with vibrant graphics, exciting sound effects and fun animation."
Animals that live in their own micro world represent each letter of the alphabet. Children can touch, tap, or drag every inch of the screen to play with the animals, uncover hidden objects, set things in motion, assemble and disassemble devices, and find exciting games. When done exploring a letter, young learners can drag the sun across the horizon to create nightfall and say goodnight to the animals.
"We feel truly inspired by today's technology because it creates such a unique opportunity for interactive learning," continued Dr. Litinsky. "A touch of whimsy, vivacity, and countless surprises - signature features of Goodnight ABC - make it so exciting that children look forward to learning every day."
