Apps open up a whole new world for individuals with or without special needs. (They are especially beneficial during rare times like these where schools are closed due to COVID-19.) I briefly mentioned the Khan Academy Math app several years ago, but I haven’t written about the Khan Academy Kids app yet. The Khan Academy Kids app helps children learn and practice reading, writing, language, social-emotional development, and more.
The Khan Academy Kids app “inspires a lifetime of learning and discovery” for children ages two and up. Here’s more from the developer’s website:
“Our personalized learning path dynamically adapts, ensuring each child is presented with activities, books, educational videos, and creative lessons that allow them to learn at their own pace, creating an individualized experience for every learner.”
Overview of the Khan Academy Kids app:
- Free, fun educational program for children ages two and up
- No ads, no subscriptions
- Thousands of new interactive activities, exercises, and books covering English Language Arts
- The program “engages children in core subjects like early literacy, reading, writing, language and math, while encouraging creativity and building social-emotional skills”
- Features five whimsical, charming characters that guide children through activities and stories
- Khan Academy Kids was developed in collaboration with learning experts at Stanford and aligned with the Head Start Early Learn Outcomes Framework and Common Core Standards
- Children are able to work/learn at their own pace
- Available on the App Store, Google Play, or Amazon Appstore
