How a Tablet Can Identify Learning Challenges

It is important for every parent to be as involved in their child’s study path as much as possible. The challenge is often identifying a student’s strengths and weaknesses. Of course, for a youngster, the earlier you can identify any learning challenges, the better. With this mind, and despite your belief that a tablet is purely an entertainment device, The Tutoring Center, Long Beach CA has some information below about how introducing your youngster to a tablet can not only benefit their learning but also help you to identify any learning challenges. A great example comes in the way of a flashcard style app. These are the same as you remember, where you write a question on one side and the answer on the other. The obvious difference between them is that no they are now digital. While the tool seems basic enough, with your child pressing the button that corresponds with their answer and the app moving on to the next prompt, behind the scenes there is a lot of data which is being captured. Data which a parent can benefit from. Keeping with the flashcard example, the right app could present a visual representation of your child’s learning metrics, allowing you to easily see which questions/prompts receive the most correct answers and which don’t. In addition to this, the response time for each answer is also important to note, as a child’s ability to quickly recall information is just as important as knowing the information itself. Of course, the benefits are not limited to a flashcard app. Another example comes in the form of an app which is designed to teach children long division. As you likely remember, learning and practicing long division with a pen and paper is difficult, often requiring numerous attempts with numbers erased and rewritten. An app designed to help a child in this respect can not only make the lessons easier to learn but can also identify and react to the responses. For example, if such an app can identify a recurring challenge during the lesson, the rate of which this aspect is covered can be increased to help reinforce weak areas. Methods such as this maximize the time your child spends studying as they aren’t spending valuable study time on lessons they already know.
