Tic Toc Time Teaches Children Clock Reading through Familiar Elements
Cupertino, California – Parents and educators who are looking for an innovative new way to help young learners aged 5-8 read a clock face, can now download Tic Toc Time: Break Down the Day to Learn How to Tell Time from acclaimed children’s educational app development company Seven Academy.
Unlike other time-telling apps, Tic Toc Time takes into consideration that learning to read a clock face is not an intuitive process for children. As such, the app builds a foundation with elements that children are already deeply familiar with: sun, shadow, night and day. From there, children are taught how to tell time via a simple, easy and fun learning path that was crafted in conjunction with renowned French mathematician Aurelien Alvarez and Swiss astrophysicist Slim Hamdani.
Other Tic Toc Time special features include:
* A fun and easy interface that children love using
* Ideal for home use, school use, and while in transit/traveling
* Create up to 40 unique profiles for multiple learners
* Easily manage all settings: text, audio, sounds and AM/PM or 24 hour mode
In addition, Tic Toc Time meets the Common Core State Standards for mathematics, including standards for telling time in grades 1, 2, and 3.
“Our firm is dedicated to creating apps that teach children valuable skills and knowledge, while at the same time, deliver a fun and playful experience that puts a big smile on everyone’s face,” commented Nathalie Gauthier of Seven Academy. “With Tic Toc Time, we’ve joined forced with well-known experts to create something that we feel children, parents and educators are going to love using hour after hour!”
Tic Toc Time: Break Down the Day to Learn How to Tell Time, the world’s first app that teaches clock reading to young learners aged 5-8 using elements that they’re deeply familiar with, is available now for iPhone and iPad in the App Store.
