ConversationBuilder™ (Pat. Pend.) is designed to help elementary aged children learn how to have multi-exchange conversations with their peers in a variety of social settings.
The auditory pattern of conversation is presented in a visual format to help students recognize and master the flow of conversation. Students will learn when it is appropriate to introduce themselves, ask questions, make observations and change the subject of the conversation.
Being able to converse with peers is the cornerstone of developing relationships, and ConversationBuilder™ promotes development of this skill that so many elementary aged children struggle with in a fun and engaging way.

What's New in Version 1.7
Improved performance with iOS7.
There are aspects of this app that I like very much, however I think the difference between the 3 answers should be less subtle or there should be an easier level to choose between 2 possible answers that are more distinct. My students are easily frustrated and discouraged by making so many errors and don't understand why the answer was "wrong". Better to have more concrete differences and the slp can explain more easily why one answer was better than another.
I enjoy using this app for a variety of purposes because of the detail in the photographs, and often target inferencing or prediction besides conversation (collecting my own data outside the app). One suggestion I have for this app is to include more multicultural people in the pictures. My students are not all one race, but the majority of the pictures I have seen lately depict Caucasian people only. If that was updated, I would consider giving 5 stars.
Interactive with Great Feedback
I use this in speech language therapy with great success. Features include sharing, recording options, content and level options and an archive to demonstrate growth. My students love it.
