Would you like to give your kids the best screen time?

 Building Curiosity

Children are born curious but traditional learning tools limit their natural curiosity. The most commonly used tool – ‘worksheets’ are boring! Our apps use in-game events and characters to generate engaging problems around mathematics and coding which kids love to solve. No worksheets, just winners. No fear of failure, just plaudits for effort.

More Practice Time

Research shows that every hour of additional practice increases a child’s grade by 1 %. Our apps put the gaming experience first. And let the learning take care of itself. Kids are inclined to practice more as they win in-game currency for every practice session. As a result, redundant game time becomes fun learning time.

Actually Fun Games

Kids love playing casual games. Rather than simply producing clumsily camouflaged ‘gamified’ lessons, we put the gaming experience first and then embed the education. The result? Educational games kids actually enjoy.  In fact our games are so much fun that even the adults in the family have a go at them.

Interactive Learning Content

All SKIDOS games contain interactive Math and Coding questions that require kids’ active engagement. Through visual support, audio text and open-ended questions, learning content becomes much easier to understand and solve. Thanks to our improved Math and Coding questions, kids can learn more actively. The kid-friendly design helps the children get instant feedback and learn from their mistakes.

Curriculum Aligned Standards

Our entire learning database is mapped to global curriculum standards, like the Common Core Standards and the European National level Standards, which students and teachers are expected to follow for Mathematics. For coding, our in house team of teachers and programmers have designed a unique curriculum to encourage kids to understand how games are coded.

Minimum Adult Supervision

Children find our games intuitive. They progress through the levels at their own pace, advancing to the next level only through mastering the previous level. Our games enable fast start-up and immediate engagement regardless of proficiency level of the child. So, children don’t need constant parent supervision. Our data analysis tools let us spot where a child needs a helping hand.

Useful Tips for Parents

Make math fun: Apps that make learning simple

By | Education | No Comments

Most children are scared of numbers. But what if maths could be easy and fun? What if numbers became your child’s best friend? Here’s how you can make math learning simple for your child.

SKIDOS Math Games

Make numbers fun

Addition and subtraction can be boring. But if the same can be taught in a fun way, children are sure to love it. Look at mathematics games that include attractive characters and interactive levels to keep children engaged for hours. This will also help your child to concentrate better on school work.

Get your child exclusive attention

Whether your child is in kindergarten learning numbers or a 2nd grader learning problem solving, it is not always possible for a teacher to give exclusive attention to every child in the classroom. A fun, interactive learning game will help your child learn at their own pace.

Bring maths to everyday life

Math is all around us. Let your child see it too. Encourage your child to use their classroom and gaming app learning at home. Can they help you total the grocery bill? Can they count the number of apples left in the fruit basket? Can your child keep a count on the number of times you get a phone call in a day? Simple, everyday activities that will make your child interested in maths.

Make math interesting

If your child loves to play online games, nothing could be better than educational maths games. These will help your child learn math in a colorful environment. Whether they like adventures like car racing  and surfing or cute characters like bunny rabbits and bears & bees, you are sure to find games that will interest your child and make math interesting.

Share the math fear

Like things we like, things we don’t like can also bring us closer to our children. If you too found math scary, let your child know. Share the funny stories. And then find ways to solve maths equations together. Select multiplayer games and share your tips & tricks. When education is made fun instead of a burden, children tend to put more effort.

Don’t make math a monster

Maths is important. But don’t punish your child if they run in the opposite direction at the mere mention of numbers. Let them know that it is alright to learn slow. And it is alright to not get top grades all the time. They should be able to look at it like a problem that can have multiple solutions. Instead of comparing your child to the math genius in their class, find mathematics games  that will show them the fun side of numbers.

Always encourage

Till your child finds school and education a ‘cool’ thing, you are in a good spot. There will always be challenges. Not all children learn at the same pace. Make sure your child does not feel isolated just because they could not score well.

1. Play fun learning games

Let’s be honest. Nobody really likes homework or boring games that look just like homework. Kids love to play fun games. Rather than merely producing clumsily camouflaged ‘gamified’ lessons, why not put the gaming experience first and then embed the education. The result? Educational games kids actually enjoy.  Find tips to pick actually fun and creative learning games here.

For preschoolers & kindergarten kids, you can start with simple games that help them learn the basics- numbers, colours and shapes. When a child is actively engaged with the game, their mind experiences the pleasure of learning a new system. You can adapt the cool learning games by age.  Download the games on your phone or tablets.

2. Enrich their minds with Coding puzzles

Yes, you and your kids can get inspired and interested in coding. Coding stimulates computational thinking and encourages creativity. Learning to code helps kids develop critical thinking skills as well as the ability to solve problems. Your kids can understand the coding logic behind their favourite games. The best way to start learning is by solving coding puzzles. This will help your kids foster an early interest in coding which is already a very critical 21st-century skill.

Integrate math in their everyday activities. Start with grocery shopping, count the number of oranges your child helps you put in the grocery bag at the supermarket or the number of stairs you go up to the front door. You can start with small amounts and add a few as your child is ready for a challenge. 

In the new digital age, you can also get some cool math games in the App Store for your kids to improve their math skills.

Online Educational Games for kids

What are our best online learning games for kids in 2019?

By | Education, News, Skidos | No Comments

 

In this article, we share with you the best online learning games for 2019 published by SKIDOS. Our platform grows every month as we add new games. Some of our users’ favourites online learning games are here:

1. Bike Racing is one of our most popular game available on Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

One of the most successful games we published last year was BIKE RACING. Kids fell in love with it instantly, and it helped them not only play like a real pro motorcyclist across the most exciting race tracks, but it also assisted in Mathematics and Coding practice.

What makes it so popular amongst kids is the fact that progression is smooth and entertaining. The game has 99 race tracks and the possibility to modify the racer’s gear, outfits and skills. Each level the gameplay becomes slightly harder, but not that hard to make kids give up on the game.

Math puzzles in the game can be adjusted to match the school curriculum and specific mathematics operations such as multiplication, fractions etc. can be chosen

2. Snow Race 

Similar in gameplay to Bike Racing, but the scenes are as cool as the mountain slopes in the game. The gameplay is more straightforward, so it can perfectly match with children between 4 and 10 years old. Here the educational questions are again for math and coding.

3. Bakery Game

Children can learn how to bake a cake with real ingredients. On top of that, the whole “Do It Yourself” scenario provokes their creative thinking, and the fun is guaranteed. In this game, the educational questions are within coding and maths as well, but the gameplay has many voice-overs to help children improve their listening skills and remember the name of the ingredients for baking. Who knows, they may want to help you next time in the kitchen? 

4. ABC Town and Fishing Game

        

These games help kids to practice spelling and pronunciation of the first 200 english words using phonetics and pictures.  It does include the math puzzles too. The cool thing about both these games is the amazingly cute graphics and the ease of the gameplay. Those two online educational games will match best for kids at the age of 4 and 5 years.

5. Rabbit Rescue and Flower Match 

          

Coming last but not the least as the best online learning games for kids. One is a very popular bubble shooter game which kids love and the other is based on a match 3 puzzle gameplay popularly seen in games like Candy Crush. 

Here the fun is to rescue cute Rabbits from being stuck in balloons and kids can advance in their trajectory by shooting to the sides and learning about angles. Best for kids from 6 to 11+ years age group. 

Now is the time that you go and download these five stars learning games for your kids and start their fun learning. 

More new games are being added every month.
