Educational Potential
The educational content is pretty basic, so the higher end of the 3-to-8 age range may be a stretch for many kids. But for preschoolers and kindergarten-age kids, its has a lot of educational content that will be just right for their age, and more than just right in fun and laughs. Many kids love to imagine themselves included in stories, and this app puts them front and center. Kids can use the books, videos, and a dancing game on StoryBots - Learning Books, Videos and Games.
Learning Object / Suggested activities with students
The app could help teachers to reinforce kids skills with reference to Language & Reading (letter or word recognition, naming, storytelling), Math (numbers, shapes), Science (animals), Social Studies (history).
Families and Teachers can talk about kid's characters in StoryBots, Learning Books, Videos, Games and movies. Kids make their own characters out of clay and make up their own stories, and are engaged with the stories by asking them what their character is doing, thinking, and feeling.
