Clean Up: Category Sorting
By Different Roads to Learning, Inc.
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
This interactive game develops language, reasoning, and sorting and classifying skills in your learners. Players must "clean up" by putting 75 photographic images of toys, food, and clothing away in the correct shopping cart, refrigerator, or toy box. Each target is introduced by its label ("Where does the Apple go?") in each round where players see 15 unique images. Correct responses receive visual and auditory reinforcement while incorrect answers are corrected by a visual prompt of the correct answer flashing. After all targets have been seen once, they are reintroduced in a new, randomized order. The App takes data for the percentage answered correctly across rounds as well as sessions in which the App is in use. This app builds foundational sorting skills for students just developing their sorting and classifying skills.
What's New in Version 1.21
This update contains crisp, clear, new images for 75 language targets as well as for the clean-up containers. There are also new reinforcers and voiceovers. Each target is now introduced by its label ("Where does the Apple go?"). The 75 targets are introduced in rounds of 15 with an option to continue playing after each round. After all targets have been seen once, they are reintroduced in a new, randomized order. The App takes data for the percentage answered correctly across rounds as well as sessions in which the App is in use.
Only 3 categories, but they are done well
This app is much better after your last update. The pictures look great. I like getting to see the accuracy at the end of the session. It would be nice if you had a menu button available while playing. The other buttons all have a back to menu button, but when you click on the play button there is no way to go back unless you close out the program. Also, I think it would be nice if you have an options menu that lets you do things like change the amount of reinforcement, remove the verbal prompts, and option to have a next button or automatic movement to the next target. Also, the only place that I saw that told me there are 15 targets per session was on the itunes description. I think you should add that info in your about this game section. I like that you have so many images, but with other developers putting out apps with more than three categories you're really limiting yourself. Do you have any plans to make other sorting groups? (Animals, Transportion, etc.) It would really make this a more comprehensive sorting app.
