Are Your Kids Using Their Devices to Learn?

Let’s face it. While today’s smart phones and tablets have tremendous potential to help children learn, most of the time our kids are using them for entertainment purposes- watching movies, following social media, visiting websites, and playing games. If you aren’t watching your kids while they are using their devices, you may wonder if there is much learning occurring.

But now, with Lock2Learn, you can ensure that when your kids are using their devices, they are also learning! Lock2Learn requires your children to periodically answer age-appropriate questions from a variety of subjects in order to continue with their device-based activities. With Lock2Learn, you know your children are learning when they are using their devices…even when you aren’t watching!

With Lock2Learn, your child’s school learning will be regularly reinforced. In addition, you can also:

  • Restrict your child’s access to apps that you designate
  • Receive reports summarizing how your child is performing in various subjects such as Math and English / Language Arts
  • See how your child is using his or her device, including which apps they are using and how much time they are spending on those apps

The More They Use, The More They Learn!

Lock2Learn is a new app that “locks” devices such as smart phones and tablets when they are in use by your children, at time intervals that you determine. Each time the device “locks”, the child will be asked to correctly answer a series of questions from a database that has been developed by teachers and is specific to your child’s grade level. Once your child answers a certain number of questions correctly, the device will “unlock” and the child will be able to access the apps that you want them to have access to. The program is always running on your family’s devices and can only be turned off with a password. In addition, you can log onto the Lock2Learn site and review information about your child’s performance on the questions or their activity on the device, including which apps they use and how long they are spending on various activities.

Lock2Learn allows you to customize your child’s experience based on your needs. You determine how frequently your child’s device will lock, how many questions the child needs to answer correctly before resuming device activities, which subject areas your child will be quizzed on, what grade level the questions will be based on, and even what apps your child will have access to.

As your child answers questions correctly, they will also receive points, allowing them to see how they stack up against others on the Lock2Learn leaderboard.

With Lock2Learn, you can ensure your children are using their devices to learn and not just for entertainment…even when you aren’t watching!
