Didakto telling time | new kids app for learning to read the clock
The new kids app for learning how to tell and read the time has just been released and it certainly comes up with some fresh and new ideas for our educational apps category.
Didakto has already produced two really brilliant educational apps in the past, so we’re really trhilled to be presenting you their new Didakto telling time app today.
1. What time is it?
With most educational apps, kids need to pay attention to the time of day to whether it’s morning or afternoon. This is also how the first game works, where the time is shown an an analog clock-face and needs to be converted to the digital clock. The difficulty level can be adapted in all games.
2. Set the clock
The Analog clock is now being introduced and also being set by kids. If you’ve chosen the minute hand or even the second hand with the individual difficulty level, then all three hands can be moved and set.
This clock-face out of the first game, has to be the easiest one to read out of them all.
3. Adding time
Now it’s beginning to get a little bit tricky as kids will now need to start calculating. Basically, kids need to add time to the already shown time on the clock-face, by setting the clock again. Educational learning games as such are also really good for older pupils who can use a higher difficulty level.
4. Find the path through the maze
We’re not already familiar with this type of learning game from Didakto’s Times Tables app, we also love this and really appreciate this type of educational gameplay.
You can choose between analog or digital clocks, which are shown on the platforms in this game. Again, kids will need to calculate in this game too. You basically find a path from start to finish by keep adding the same amount of time to the given clock-face. You are also surrounded by many false answers so you need to be careful to pick the correct answer to finally get your way through the maze.
Screenshot: After checking the answers, the ones marked red and orange are wrong and the green ones correct.
5. Which clock show the same time?
In this game, it is important to match a pair with both fingers at once. Only then, the clock-cards dissapear and reveal the motive underneath.
6. Who has the right answer?
There are two possibilities to play this time/clock game. You either choose the right answer or the matching question to the given answer.
Didakto telling time has six educational learning games all together, all about learning the clock, the time, but also learning and practising your calculations. All these games are great however they do have one disadvantage: they’re all without any audio response. Other apps who teach time and help kids to read the clock that we have tested so far, offer audio response and are therefore already suitable for preschool kids and kids that are not yet able to read by themselves. For this matter we would rather recommend you another app.
The strengths of the Didakto telling time are in the challenging and varied games of this learning app. Some of which you never even seen in other apps before.
Provided that your kids can already read, you will get a very good “telling time” app, which does not only encourage and captivate kids to learn the time, it is also a very good math-training app for learning additions.
