"Power of Three" is an interactive educational App based on a story written by Pittsburgh, PA based Milana (Mim) Bizic, a well known teaching figure across schools and colleges in America. The App takes readers through a journey of discovery through puzzles, exercises, history references, hidden games, etc.
Sometimes, shy children in a classroom are overshadowed by extroverted students with outgoing personality and verbal skills. The others sometimes get left behind, afraid to share their inner thoughts with anyone except a trusted friend or confidant.
In our story, Johnny, said to be the “lazy” and "reluctant" Learner, transforms himself into a CHANGE LEADER and CLASSROOM CHAMPION, providing vision and new direction to his fellow table teammates, and finally the whole class. We witness what could be unkind, bully-like behavior change into constructive, productive and positive classroom behavior.
The App encourages readers to imagine themselves as members of the library class, participating in and sharing as many ideas as they can, doing some matching exercises, and throughout the story, urging the virtual students to get "fired-up," finding the magic of learning, discovering their own abilities and utilizing their own talents.
Hard to access, but worth it!
I'm Mim Bizic, developer partner of this App. So many people have written to me saying they couldn't find how to write a review here, and I myself have had trouble finding the app AND the review part several times, so let me share with you some comments from those who persevered and found it:
Tom Zahorchak: Congratulations Mim! Checked out the new APP and sent it on to Adam and Zach! I know they will be proud of you, as Claudia and I are.
Kathleen Waters: Maggie is enthusiastically thinking of things that come in 3’s for your game. She could not wait to get home from school today and download it! Maggie asked me if that was you narrating the game. I believe it is you – right? I have many friends with iPads and children, so I will advertise your wonderful application. You made a difference in many lives, you probably don’t even know the extent!
Donna Snyder-Lucas: "Congratulations on your app! I bought it for both of our Ipads. Can't wait to share it with my girls. I love hearing your positive voice on it, and I think it's especially fun to read about a character named Donna :) "
Expertly Crafted! A Story with Common Sense!
This story is beautifully crafted, illustrated, narrated, and stocked with activities to discover! It is easy to tell a lot of time, effort, and thought went into production to making this app! It is perfect for all ages including young children and adults! Not only is it an enjoyable story for the sake of a story but it also is very realistic and teaches us to use common sense to see the big picture by using supportive evidence. It encourages us to explore and discover and observe and reminds us that empathy is the key to better understanding and better achieving. This is a beautiful story! It is the only story book app on morals I have decided to keep on my iPad! Other story's are too full of "fluff"! Thank you for developing this marvelous app! It is likely to make differences in many people's lives!
Great story and nice pictures
