How can KinderTEK be used in preschools, daycares or after-school programs?

Answer:

  • Teachers or center directors can choose between Basic (no Internet connectivity required) or Pro (subscription-based data services; Internet connectivity required) delivery.  Compare implementation models

Question: 

How can KinderTeK be used at school?

Answer: 
  • KinderTEK may be used as part of core instruction, as an intervention for students struggling with mathematics, or as a reward activity.
  • Young students can successfully and independently use the app (e.g., during seat work, centers, free choice, small group instruction, intervention periods, during indoor recess, and outside of class time).
  • Educators can choose between Basic (no Internet connectivity required) or Pro (subscription-based data services; Internet connectivity required) version.  Compare implementation models
  • To meet specific learning goals and students’ needs, teachers can allow students to choose KinderTEK activities or complete the step-by-step learning sequence. Soon, teachers will also be able to direct students to particular lessons.

Question: 

How can KinderTEK be used at home?

Answer: 
  • KinderTEK may be used independently by young children (recommended age 4-8) without Internet connectivity. It’s a FUN educational app to turn to when a child needs a break from siblings, a parent needs to prepare dinner, or the family is stuck in a waiting room.
  • Multiple children can have their own learning accounts so that their KTEK experience is specific to their individual learning needs.
  • Parents can allow children to “explore” KTEK content on their own or follow the recommended learning sequence.
