Parenting has always been hard, and while technology is supposed to make our lives easier, sometimes just trying to understand the technologies your children are using (or that they should be using) is the hardest part of all.
At LearningWorks for Kids our mission is to help parents make sense of the digital world that their kids are growing up in. We’ll show you how to use today’s most innovative technologies to improve critical thinking, strengthen academics, and develop the skills your child needs to live a healthy, happy life.
What is LearningWorks for Kids?
At LearningWorks for Kids we go far beyond simply reviewing the latest games and apps being sold as “educational” in the app store and online.
Our team of clinicians, educators, and technology specialists have built a groundbreaking website that analyzes each child’s cognitive strengths and weaknesses, determines exactly which technologies can best address their learning needs, and provides parents with a constantly updating prescription of the best games and apps for their unique child.
What makes LW4K different from other app review sites?
LearningWorks for Kids is the only app review site that assesses your child’s needs in order to determine exactly which apps and games will help them the most.
But finding the right apps for each child is only the beginning. In order to ensure that each child actually achieves the improvements that these technologies promise, we provide in-depth learning guides for every game and app we review. These strategic learning guides show parents exactly how each technology can practice, support, and improve cognitive skills, while offering simple strategies and fun activities that connect digital play time to the emotional, cognitive, and academic skills that their children struggle with every day.
In addition to our learning guides, LW4K offers hundreds of pages of expert advice on parenting in the digital world. Our advice covers topics that range from setting a balanced play diet, to using technology for disabilities like ADHD and Autism, to mixing screen-time with exercise, and much, much more.
