Introducing Juddly, a secure message-sharing service for kiddos
There are a ton of educational apps out there and sometimes it is tough to weed through the crowd to find the best of the best. I've been very impressed with the apss that I've seen from local app developer (and retired Chicago kindergarten teacher) Mrs. Judd.
Mrs. Judd’s recently brought another product to market called Juddly that adds another cool interactive element to her popular apps. Juddly is a groundbreaking web-based service and API for mobile apps that empowers children to safely share their in-app artwork and creations directly to their parent’s inbox. Juddly is currently available in seven of Mrs. Judd’s Games’ early childhood education free apps and will soon be included in all titles.
Here is how it works. Parents or teachers set up their Juddly dashboard and connect apps directly to their email. Children interact with an app, then decide when and what to share by clicking on the Juddly icon. Adults receive the child’s creation via email and can later organize, display and share it. Kids can share their work (which they obviously love to do). Mom and dad can start a conversation with their child and dig deeper into their experience with the app. Great idea, right?
Mrs. Judd’s Games are free at the iTunes App Store and are ideal for children ages 4 through 8. Seven apps currently incorporate Juddly Sendy, creates steampunk-inspired art; Hi Mom!, shares photos in a comic book style; Crabby Writer: Phonics, Read & Write; Chalk Walk, promotes pincer grip; Rhinomite, centers on prepositions with superheroes; Left Right Pup, teaches left/right; and Snowflake Station, a math symmetry game that makes it ‘snow’ on photos.
Spring break iPad activities galore! I encourage you to check out these wonderful (and totally free) educational resources for your little ones.
