What's New in Version 1.0.3
Added a setting to turn auto-advance for activities on and off
I use this with a lot of my groups and the kids seems to love it. It needs some adjustments though. Some kids click and then realize their mistake after they have the processing time and you can't redo your answer. I also wish there was a pause button on it so you can give feedback to the student. They know they got it wrong but they don't know what they did wrong. They need those teaching moments! I also wish there was a key to teach them the vocabulary beforehand. Most of my language impaired kids don't know what these foods are. I now teach them with my own pictures but it would be nice to pair the app pictures to the words so they can learn them.
Levels not consistent
When you click on the easy level, the app gives you easy and difficult directions. When you click on the hard level, it's the same way. Easy should be easy and hard should be hard. Frustrating for beginning listeners.
I want to like it but can't.
The audio presentation makes this unusable. I understand that for putting unique sentences and situations together there will be some choppiness. Using two different voices though makes it very distracting and reduces actual task accuracy. Not usable as is. Please redo audio with one person speaking per sentence.
