This colorful educational App for the iPhone®, iPad®, and iPodTouch® has all 52 illustrated picture flash cards (plus audio of the text on each card) from the Understanding Inferences Fun Deck® by Super Duper® Publications. Select the cards you want students to see, and have them answer questions or complete sentences to help boost their inferencing and reasoning skills. Prompts include questions like, “Who might live here?” and sentences like, “Bill is sick. His mom is taking him to…”
This App is simple to use — each student looks at an illustration, and either reads the prompt or touches the screen to listen to the prompt. The student then gives a verbal response. After each answer, tap the green (correct) or red (incorrect) button to score the student’s verbal response. Move to the next card by sliding the card currently on the display screen to the side. To move to the next player, tap the bar at the top of the screen and select a name. You can also advance cards and players automatically by selecting the Auto-Advance option in the Game Options menu. You can leave a game temporarily and return to it later by selecting Pause Game from the menu. To return to the game, select Continue Game from the main menu. When you finish, view the results in a graph, and print or email your data.

• Use the app in portrait or landscape orientation.

Ratings and Reviews
As an elementary school English as a second language teacher, I love Super Duper Fun Decks. Pictures are an indispensable tool for learning language. The pictures in this Fun Deck are a springboard for language production and comprehension. Teachers can use the images in conjunction with a sentence frame in order to structure and extend the students' responses. Sometimes I project the "card" from the iPad onto a screen and we play as a whole group. Other times I use the app to work with a smaller group of students so I can closely monitor their language production and listen to them explain their thinking. In whole group playing, student partners can confer with each other write their answers on a small white board. I award points for the correct answer AND for the partners explaining why they made the answer choice. Either way has the advantage of triggering metacognition as students have to explain their thinking. The teacher can also keep score within the app of the students' correct/incorrect responses. The colorful app keeps the students engaged and learning!
Nice pictures, not practical for teachers.
I am a Teacher and I was looking for an app my students could use independently while I worked with other kids. This is not it. I am very disappointed. You need to have an independent mode where kids can choose the correct answer. I also don't like the negative sound it makes if you are testing them and mark them wrong. I think the sounds would be important if they were playing by themselves. Overall nice pictures but not very useful.
Not Worth It
The pictures looked like this would be a great game to help kids make inferences, however, it does not give them the answer. It assumes you are next to them logging if it is the right answer or not. Also not very user friendly navigation. Too much money for no real return.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
