Learn My Info teaches early learners and those with special needs to learn and write their important contact information.
It is specially designed by classroom based life skills educators and occupational therapists.
Optimized for retina display.
The app is useful as a basic I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) teaching tool.
With each card they will write their info twice. Tracing first with guidance and writing each character again without the visual aid.
10 cards allow practice and repetition learning the following critical information:
Cards are presented in a game format to encourage simultaneous fun and learning.
Trace and write modes for each card enables competency.
Positive Reinforcers and Correction Procedures are included.
10 trials allow for easy data collection.
Multiple user profiles allows classroom based educators and therapists to utilize with 20+ students.
Built in screen capture tool allows you to save for data collection.
Take new photos or upload them from your iPad and recording and playback of voice allows for multi-sensory learning.
Get creative and use photos of your own home, phone, etc!!
Learn My Info NOT designed to teach construction of individual letters. Many excellent apps already provide this instruction. Learn My Info IS designed for users who already have this basic ability and goes the next step to teach the critical life skill of writing and reciting important contact information.
Settings allow for removing the negative audio reinforcer and randomized order of cards.
Learn My Info provides the peace of mind in knowing that with this app your child will be able to write and recite how to contact you and relay your name and address to a 911 operator in an emergency.
Learn My Info allows your students with special needs to achieve the confidence and skills necessary to gain independence by completing a job application, club membership, and obtaining a library card.
What's New in Version 1.2
Removed in-app purchases. Now you will receive the entire app with your initial download.
This app is not self explanatory at all. I have spent 30 minutes playing around with it, and still don't understand how to properly use it. When it comes time to write your name out, you will not be all to write your name good enough and you will not be able to proceed forward. It keeps rejecting my writing and you think my special needs kids will be able to write their names better? Not! I wish I hadn't spent the money on this. It requires directions. Not easy to use.
And can't wait to give this to my grandchildren to use.
A good start, I guess
I bought this app to trail with students who need to learnt their personal information. I was very disappointed because this app actually is about handwriting not learning your personal information. And the handwriting measures are finicky and inaccurate. This app would be much better if there were other ways to demonstrate having learned basic facts about yourself. Perhaps matching letter tiles, multiple choice or even just a review set of personal information flash cards.
I was also disappointed with things like the birthdate needing to be done in a 2-2-2008 format versus writing it out. That's fine but the app should tell you that is what it wants! I tried to type out February forever before I figured it out.
And the app only allows a certain number of characters per answer. It assumes parents have the same last names as children (and also assumes two parents, a male and a female). If a parent has a different last name you can't fit all the characters. Please come to the modern era and make it possible for one or more parent and for them to have different last names.
Finally it does not allow long state names (or street addresses) in those text boxes. My state had to be "Massachusett", which isn't what I want to teach a child.
I really want to find an app that teaches name, address and phone number - not handwriting. If anyone knows of one let me know!
