Description

"We signed up for a 14-day trial, but we soon realized we were here to stay. Our children are engaged in the activities and the staff makes the courses fun. They enjoy making the videos of their projects. They love interacting with the other students and we feel like it's a safe place for them to do it. JAM is exactly what this family needed."

Join JAM to find *your* kid's genius.

JAM gives the next generation the stuff they can't get in school. Our courses are designed by experts who are passionate about helping young people learn skills that will last a lifetime.

Each course contains a video library produced by our mentors demonstrating techniques, pro secrets and challenges.

Projects can be completed in any order and at any pace. Keeping momentum is our priority, even if it's slow and steady.

Our courses show youth how to take initiative, design their own solutions, experiment, and share their ideas. The cycle of trying, failing and growing creates independent thinkers who are capable and confident.

Jammers share their work with the Learning Community™ and in turn seek inspiration in each other’s work. Everyone is both a student and a teacher here.

Everything posted is seen by a staff member to ensure safety, privacy and appropriateness.

Parents are our partners. We offer free technical support 7 days a week – just in case your kid has stumped you, we’re there to help. We’ll also send emails to show you all the cool things your Jammers are creating in their course.

Creative . Independent . Fun

As a working single mom of two kids it's not easy to keep up with all after school activities. Until JAM I had to make choices between sports, fun and educational activities but not anymore. My 11 year old decided to give the Drawing Boot Camp a try and once she did one project, she was hooked. She really enjoys the independence which allows her to be creative. She has help from an expert if she needs it and she gets to share her work with other students taking the same courses by recording herself or posting a photo. She looks forward to seeing feedback from her online classmates and gets inspired by their work. I love it because I don't have to rush from work to yet another class. She can choose to do one or more activities and it has become a family event as in many times I join in the fun. My one request would be classes for high school level and a cartooning lesson would be much appreciated. Thank you for making me a great mom and some quality time with my kids.

Professional and fun

This is a really great app! The navigation is great. It was a little confusing at first. Let me rephrase that: It was confusing FOR ME until my 9 year old got on the app and started thumbing thru the tutorials with ease. She is the target market so it makes sense that she would intuitively know how to use it. The app is compact and full of instruction. Each course encourages the participants to connect with one another via posting their creations. The instructors are top notch and relatable. C:

The one TINY thing that (for some reason) irritated me was the constant reference to my "KID". It gets a tad annoying. Maybe I'm being ridiculous but it got under my skin.

You do not get what you pay for.

My son was so dissapointed. What they call lessons is nonsense. They are short clips of a teacher doing a kind of show and tell and then they something like , “your challenge is to build a machine to pop balloons! It fails to teach your child any actual skills or mechanics. It is more of a sharing platform for kids to post things they make and watch other kids being sillily than it is anything else. That would be fine if that was what they are advertising but it is not. The way they market and the price they charge is ridiculous for what you get. My bet is that they count on parents to hand their kids the app and walk away and forget about the two week trial. We canceled after a few hours of trial.

Developer Response

We're sorry to have disappointed your family and we hope we can have another chance to show you what JAM can do.

We believe our "Fearless to Try" methodology has a positive and often transformative impact on children – there are few things as magical for kids as trying, failing, growing and succeeding – and our courses are intentionally structured to give kids just enough context and boost to go do it themselves (instead of getting sucked into more screen time). For some topics, this means more or less video up front in order to reach that moment of "Ready to try!".

Also, we think other kids' projects make a huge difference in encouraging your kid to try it for themselves. It's disarming – and often inspiring – to see someone like them try something they haven't yet.

That said, we hear you and we are in the process of adding new videos to the course to expand our lessons for kids who want more guidance. Thanks for the feedback.
