This year we had the incredible opportunity to try out our apps with the students of Our Lady’s School, a San Diego K-8 school with a mission to educate the mind, heart and spirit.
We met with students from kindergarten through 4th grade and showed them apps like The Cat in the Hat, Oh Say Can You Say Di-no-saur? and There’s No Place Like Space! It was so enjoyable and eye-opening to see our apps in the hands of these children, most of whom had never used an iPad before.
Some of their comments about “There’s No Place Like Space!”:
“My favorite part was when I looked through the telescope. I also liked it when it gave me a warning not to look at the sun.” (7-year-old boy)
“It was cool! I liked that it reads to you and explains all the stuff.” (10-year-old girl – English Language Learner)
“I like that it told you about the planets and how far they are from the sun. I learned that some planets are very far away and get very cold!” (7-year-old girl)
To thank them for their valuable feedback (and just being really awesome), we stopped by last week with a new iPad2 (and LOTS of apps, of course!).
Thanks, Our Lady’s School, for welcoming us into your classrooms this year!
