App DescriptionScience is part of our daily life. Everything we do and deal in life is science from gardening, playing games on computer, using mobile, daily weather reports, reading a map and using microwaves. Progress in technology and science are changing our world at an incredible pace, and our children’s future will surely be filled with leaps in technology. Children need lots of opportunities to think and act like a scientist. The basic question is how we can engage our children in learning science? We need to make learning science as a fun by showing them how science relates to their daily activities.
One important thing to consider when engaging and encouraging children to learn, is to know what their interests are. It is like knowing what they are fond of eating. Normally, they would not eat what they do not like. Same thing happens when we ask children to read or learn something from book, they see reading as a chore, boring, hard work etc because, now a day’s children are more interested in technology like laptops, mobiles, tablets, iPads, iPhones etc than reading or learning from books or notes. Learning from apps attract children because colorful or a graphical representation of anything attract more than reading books. So to develop their interest there are many different apps available across all science fields, educational apps related to science can provide remedial education, strengthen concepts or help them get ahead. They often do so in a colorful, interactive manner that makes learning fun. Kids can get benefit from apps that provide supplementary science education. The best educational app help kids to learn while still being fun, and can take on everything from basic understanding to more advanced creative abilities. Apps are full of gorgeous images, videos, games etc.
New study supports the use of science apps in educational system and parents are also in favor because it helps children in their school work. Many apps help kids with learning disabilities and other special needs. Science apps teach children more than just basics of physics, chemistry and biology. These apps teach children to make observations, collect information and use logical thinking to draw conclusion. There are thousands and thousands of science apps in different forms like games, storybook, puzzle, and quizzes. These science learning tools cover complex concepts in ways that kids can understand and keeps them engaged while doing it. Through science apps kids can learn about light, space, solar systems, gems and minerals, human body, insects, seasons, etc.
So we can say that these science applications are useful and it indicates that children can learn better from well designed educational apps. Science Journal will definitely guide you with its amazingly planned guide to help you get your hands on science.
Share Science Journal with your friends and educate them.
