We are big proponents of using technology in our homeschooling education, and have found so many great tools with LeapFrog – the latest thing we got is the Tag Reader World Map, so fun!
I had the chance to interview a learning expert recently, Dr. Shermon LeVos, with LeapFrog, and this is what I asked:
- How do LeapFrog apps stand out from the crowd with the availability of free iPad and Android apps, YouTube videos, and educational online games parents have to choose from?
- Our family believes technology is very important and that children can benefit greatly by taking advantage of the opportunities that it creates for learning, but I know there are many who still hesitate to utilize the tools available because they feel traditional methods are better. Can you share any studies or statistics of the advantages of products like yours for helping kids learn?
- Are there any signs parents should watch for to know if their children are getting too overstimulated or having too much screen time, even with educational technology?
- What new LeapFrog products are you most excited about?
Let’s see what she says!
Interesting, right? I love how LeapFrog products adapt to each child’s level of learning automagically! Stay tuned next week for an awesome LeapFrog giveaway of the LeapPad2 Power + 2 games and a $20 app card!
We are receiving some fun gifts from LeapFrog for sharing this with you, and it is always our pleasure! You can also support Ticoandtina.com by purchasing Leapfrog products through our Amazon affiliate links (slideshow below).
