Crack the Books - Digital Books Evolved

I work with Mobile Education Store, a company dedicated to providing parents of elementary students with cost-effective educational tools. MES has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund its latest product, “Crack the Books,” a fully interactive, state-of-the-art series of non-fiction science books. The product is the first digital book with adjustable reading levels from a first to eighth grade. Parents and teachers can select any of five reading levels with a touch of a button.


School for Dragons Lets Kids Learn while Playing

My oldest daughter grew up on Knowledge Adventure's PC games, so I was excited to see their mobile offerings. The same daughter loved How To Train Your Dragon, so when Knowledge Adventure released an iPad app based on that movie, I was all over it!

Art Authority: Why I Sold My Art Books

image

I’ve sold most of my art books. I don’t know if this was the intent of Open Door’s Alan Oppenheimer or not, but it was the result of him providing me with Art Authority ($9.99). My iPad is no coffee table book, but that’s a good thing. As Apple touts the pencil thinness of the iPad Air, coffee table books start to look more and more arcane. What coffee table books have over the iPad is the size of their canvas. But when one actually visit museums, art books seem a bit of a travesty of pure form. Books not only fail to represent scale well, they don’t reproduce paintings or drawings with anything like fidelity to the originals; and they offer no way to experience media or paint thickness or pen impression. And when it comes to sculpture they are, of course, overwhelmingly flat (not to dismiss pop-up books).

Nommons Is a Math Game Your Kids Can Sink Their Teeth Into

image
I had the opportunity to preview Nommons: Math Universe before it was released, at a press event in Los Angeles, during the App Developers Conference where I was speaking. I'm glad I got the chance, because as it turned out, my daughter was struggling with math at that very time. I knew an app ought to help her somehow, as it can be much more interactive than flash cards.
