Serious Game LetterSchool Is a Hit in Primary Education(January 31, 2013)
Amsterdam (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
LetterSchool has already been introduced into many homes, schools and therapy practices all over the world. Everyone is impressed by the games innovative approach to handwriting instruction, its outstanding quality and its high replay value. Since the apps release just over a year ago, sales of LetterSchool have steadily increased, with the number of sales to schools showing explosive growthparticularly since the app won the KAPi Award Best Younger Childrens App 2013 earlier this month. The continuous year-long upward trend visible in LetterSchools sales chart is, in and of itself, remarkable for an app: in most cases, that line plummets after the first week or so, instead of rising. Thats just one more way in which the app proves it is a remarkable product thats helping thousands of children enjoy learning to write. In its review, Teachers With Apps wrote, Their slogan, LetterSchool Makes Handwriting Cool, is on their opening page and, oh yes, this app makes everything cool! When we field-tested this app, we had to struggle to get our iPads back from the students. They kept insisting, Just one more, PLEASE!
Winning the prestigious KAPi Award Best Younger Childrens App 2013 confirms what Boreaal Publishers has known for some time: its LetterSchool app fills a significant need for high-quality educational apps for young children. The KAPi Awards were presented on January 10, 2013 at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES®). This is the cherry atop an impressive stack of awards and accolades the app has received in its first year. In the past few weeks LetterSchool has appeared on several best of 2012 lists, and earlier in 2012 the app was crowned Best Educational Game in the Best App Ever Awards, Best Educational App and Best Mobile App for Homeschoolers in the About.com Readers Choice Awards and Editor's Choice Award in the Children's Technology Reviewand thats just the tip of the iceberg. A non-exhaustive list of the apps awards and experts reviews is available at LetterSchool.com.
The games greatest achievement is that it creates a very stimulating learning environment, offering children a truly compelling gaming experience. The wide variety of entertaining games captures the attention and keeps players practicing their letters and numbers, over and over again. By doing so, children are practicing the complicated art of handwriting without even noticing its difficult. That is the likely source of the apps success with not only children but also parents, teachers and therapists. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, and the most frequent comment is a desire for the sequel. The continuous highly positive response underscores LetterSchools important role as an innovator in handwriting instruction.
