“Setting goals teaches children to be responsible, confident and to manage their time effectively.”
Children love playing with mobile devices, and although there are some great learning apps out there, it’s also important to teach kids to make time for physical activities.
With the use of this app, kids are encouraged to set goals and get involved in physical activities, such as sports, to keep them healthy and feeling confident.
WHO ARE THE MONSTERS?
The monsters 4 all seasons are four different monsters that each represent a season (Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall). The monsters chat with the user through the app by guiding them in setting goals, eating healthy and getting active.
WHAT MAKES THIS APP UNIQUE?
It’s a self discovery app that is unique and personalized by the user. It lets children decide for themselves what physical activities they want to do and it provides them the space to discover for themselves their capabilities, interests and health state. It encourages them to record their goals, in order to give them that extra push to achieve them.
The app provides nutritional information and encourages children to try different foods for testing their energy levels, so they can discover for themselves which foods are the most effective for providing them with the energy they need. This will also allow the parents / teachers / coaches and kids to see how it affects their learning abilities, since physical activity and nutrition play a role in cognitive and neurological function.
HOW CAN CHILDREN MAKE THE BEST USE OF THE APP?
Using the app for documenting information is its greatest feature. The app provides the space for kids to:
(1) Record their progress in sports or other activities such as gardening
(2) Set goals they want to accomplish
(3) Write about any new discoveries or ideas they have
(4) Document their health state in order to eat the most nutritious foods
HOW DOES IT FUNCTION – SHOULD I HAVE ANY CONCERNS?
A Monster 4 All Seasons is an HTML 5 application that uses local storage to store information. This means that no one can access your files – except for the user of the device.
If you do choose to connect to the internet, the app is programmed to use Safe Search Kids by Google.
CHILDREN LOVE TO BE ENCOURAGED, REWARDED AND SUCCESSFUL IN THE GOALS THEY SET OUT FOR THEMSELVES – ALL THAT THE APP HAS TO OFFER!
