ELECTRICITY BY KIDS DISCOVER
CONCEPT: The latest interactive book app from world class developers Kids Discover.
DELIVERY: With the speed that Kids Discover are releasing new content, you'd be forgiven for expecting a dip in quality. However yet again, Electricity is a first rate example of a 21st century learning tool. Fully interactive and stacked with multimedia content and interactive elements, this is the type of book students today crave.
As with their other releases, it follows the formula of presenting a topic in a series of sections that encompass, Science, History and more. Always engaging and accessible, the content jumps off the digital page and makes even the more difficult concepts easy to understand. The app is then rounded off with a set of quiz games to test understanding.
The level of interest the Kids Discover apps produce is outstanding and the depth of them allows for a wide range of ages and abilities to access part or all of the text. Best of all, the cross curricular and real world links that are made through apps like Electricity help contextualise the learning of a subject.
LIMITATIONS: Perhaps even more interactives - or am I being greedy? Some detail on circuits and circuit diagrams would have been a welcome addition though.
CONCLUSION: We refer to Kids Discover as a brand you can trust for a reason. They continue to develop first rate interactive textbooks of the highest quality for the modern student to engage and immerse in. 5/5
