***Susan Buchen and M. Parker each won a copy! Enjoy!***
I have another Mobile Education Store app review and giveaway today! This time we’re taking a look at Question Builder (version 1.9, $5.99), also part of the MES bundle—a goal I’m likely to target a lot this year.
Again, set up your user profile and make target selections in settings.
Types of Questions: Why, where, how, what, random
- 1: Questions relate directly to the picture; 3 answer choices
- 2: Questions require some inferencing; 4 answer choices
- 3: Questions require more complex inferences; 5 answer choices
- On: Questions appear with red background and answers are in blue text
- Off: No background to question text, answer text is in black
Text reinforcement: Question text on or off
The child is shown a picture and given written answer choices. For most of my kiddos working on these skills, reading isn’t happening yet so I have them produce the answer spontaneously and make the answer selection based on the closest option.
If you choose the correct answer a funny animation comes up for reinforcement. Miss it and the narrator gently prompts you to try again.
This app is a little older and the graphics look a bit out of date especially compared to others from this developer. It would also be helpful if an error choice was made if it disappeared on subsequent trials.
Again, I received a free copy for review, but all opinions expressed are my own. Plus, I’ve got two copies to give away! To enter, leave a comment below with a current burning question that’s been on you mind (mine is “Why does the fashion industry keep trying to bring leg warmers back?”) You have until midnight EST on November 5, 2014 to enter and winners will be selected at random. Good luck!
