Kidappolis is an app that turns screen time into fun, meaningful learning opportunities for children PreK-3rd grade.
Download the Kidappolis app on Android or iOS and give your child a reading skills assessment. Once completed, we will design milestones based on your child’s current skill level and desired improvement.
Developed by LitLab, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we help parents identify their child’s math skills level and connect them with engaging apps that address their specific needs. We collect usage data to provide guided feedback, and we teach parents how to use this information to create learning goals and understand if they are achieving them. Best of all, the app is available in both English and Spanish.
Regardless of where your child is in the learning process, kidappolis shapes around their current skill level. Our quick, six question diagnostic that you immediately see upon opening the app after downloading is all that's needed to see if they are meeting standards for their current grade. If their dominant language is not English, or they only like certain characters, not to worry ─ we offer customized plans that lay out exactly what goal needs to be met along with how long it will take to reach that goal. Additionally, fun badges and animal characters are included to encourage kids to keep going, even as the content increases in difficulty- from word clues to phonics and beyond.
Best of all, periodic assessments are included in the app to concretely measure progress. These are directly drawn from the apps your child has already utilized, such as Worldreader Kids and Khan Academy. Similar to the diagnostics, these are concise and highly effective, drilling down to the core skills being tested.
Not only do we want to promote more constructive screen time, we also want to enhance the quality of offline time as well. That's why we send tips for brief activities for you to do with your child, centered around the skills they are building at any given time. For example, we'll remind you to reinforce the social-emotional skills your child is learning, along with how they relate to their favorite characters. These tips also link to local resources that you may find useful, such as library events, school open houses, etc.
