Young Mind Interactive is a developer and publisher of educational content, games, eBooks and digital learning tools. We create engaging customized applications and programs to enhance the learning experience in the classroom and increase the student’s enthusiasm for learning at home. Our products are designed for use in today’s “Flipped Classrooms” and work on mobile devices, laptops, desktops and projected interactive screens, providing a hands-on learning experience while enhancing the learning experience at school and beyond.
GAMES for IPADS (and other Tablets)
The Apple iPad is currently the market leader of mobile devices in use in school systems across the U.S. At Young Mind Interactive, we begin our game design process by thinking about the iPad as our starting point of development. Our games are designed to work well on the full range of Apple tablets in use in our schools. We also support other tablets such as the Kindle, Galaxy and other Android-based tablets.
GAMES for INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS
Projecting our games onto “Interactive Whiteboards” is a great way to involve the whole class. Our Games are designed for easy accessibility, making sure that they work on the most popular Web Browsers. Our design teams think about how children use interactive whiteboards in the classroom, and we do extensive testing to make sure our games are as easy for teachers to set up, and easy for children of all ages and sizes to navigate. Interactive whiteboards are ideal for teams, where more than one player can use the game at the same time. Watch this video example>
CONTENT that TEACHES
We develop age-appropriate educational content that effectively teaches across the STEAM spectrum. (A current project has us developing classroom downloadable worksheets in partnership with the mission that just discovered Earnest Shackleton’s ship Enduarance – on the left!)
Game content development is by nature effective at teaching by providing responsive feedback to reinforce the topic. Worksheets that can be colored while providing educational information is a simple example of effective tactile feedback to reinforce what has been taught. Our Advisors are experts in the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching and we apply that in the development and testing of the digital tools we develop for educators in the U.S. school systems.
