Description

This is a fun and easy way for kids to quickly increase vocabulary by matching words to pictures.

This initial version is built specifically for young children learning English. We will frequently update this app with expanded vocabulary along with new images. Eventually, we plan to add lexicons specific to higher education.

Just like so many picture books for children, this app helps children quickly learn words by an association with images. First, the child notices the images and then sees the word. Next, the child selects which image best represents that word – finding a match. Finally, by tapping on the image they make their selection. If it's correct, the app pops up a sentence, which uses the word. This immediate response helps solidify their understanding of the word's meaning. By integrating thinking, visual, and touch into one fast-moving experience, you are building strong memories or neurological pathways.

This app was developed as a project in Startup Weekend Seattle March 2010. This event was created by Startup Weekend and sponsored by Adobe. More than 100 participants met on Friday for a 54-hour competition to build a business from scratch. It is a fun and exciting experience to be urgently building a “business” in such a short amount of time. Sunday evening was the final test when the 13 competing teams made their presentation and demos to the crowded room. We were just a team of two – and we did not win. But we were committed to continue the project and determined to ship it to Apple for inclusion in the release of the iPad.

We welcome general input, words to include and ideas for improvement.
