Educational Apps at Open Door
Open Door provides Kindle Tablets in the centers for use as assistance with Homework or to play age appropriate educational games. Educational games/apps are selected through Amazon by the main office and distributed to each Kindle by Amazon’s Whispercast Software. With parental permission, children may sign up to use a Kindle Tablet for a specified amount of time and sign it back in when they are finished. Each Kindle has approximately 40 apps for the children to choose from ranging from pre-school memory and sight word games to eighth grade advanced math and learning Spanish.
Apps by Kevin Bradford are excellent examples of applications individually designed by grade level for Pre-K – 5th grade. Each provides dozens of learning games that include Language and Math.
