Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks
Brainfeed relies on a series of engaging, informative videos to deliver information to kids on a wide array of subjects. Learning the kind of varied, expansive knowledge offered by Brainfeed would be challenging for kids left to rely on traditional educational methods, but the video content can hold their attention and keep them focused on the topics at hand. Best of all, interesting video lessons can inspire a desire for further learning, prompting kids to take their research outside of the app.
Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings. Improving social skills.
Brainfeed’s massive amount of video content allows users to explore their interest across a variety of subjects. Children can learn about everything from arts and music to how the brain or even the universe works. The app is sure to offer kids something that fascinates them, while also serving as a gateway into new interests and learning. Children who feel they do not have a good grasp on a particular subject can use the app to seek out content that will help strengthen their study of specific subject areas, helping them become more informed, well-rounded learners.
The Mathematics section in Brainfeed features high-quality videos that hold kids' attention -- not always an easy task when it comes to math. There are explorations of geometry, profiles of historic figures and achievements in mathematics, even videos that use pizza to discuss physics. Brainfeed's math section covers concepts like pi, matrices, fractions, and data probability as well. While children won't be computing equations themselves, they will be introduced to a variety of larger mathematical concepts through video, which they can than explore further outside the app.
The English section has numerous videos on subjects like language, famous authors, the meanings behind words, and even a workshop sub-section. Kids can bolster their reading ability by studying up on lessons covering everything from nouns and pre-fixes to synonyms and plurality. A dedicated "Writers Workshop" section has a great slew of content to help kids grasp writing concepts like verbal irony, dramatic irony, and the elements of a short story. Brainfeed even has a five-step guide to help kids jump start some exercises in "slam poetry." With much more curated content on the way, Brainfeed's educational resources are promised to grow.
