Toddler’s Tech Session – Discovery. With Three.
Finding entertainment for kids during summer time can be a strain, especially when you’d like something engaging and educational. We have been invited at Three, where they are hosting sessions purely aimed at kids that’ll help them to learn something new. These sessions are completely free and are available to anyone on any network.
Each event has a different subject matter and hosted on different days and times. The subjects have been chosen based on trends, demands and the interests to kids.
Session lasted about 2 hours and during this time we were shown on how to control the time our kids use different devices, as well as presented some of the best apps. It was very exciting for kids as we did not know about these apps before. Three’s Discovery room is very beautiful, one of the wall has a revolution of all the mobile phones from the very first one to the newest ones. Elizabeth especially liked the lift which took us to the Discovery room.
Kids were given iPads to play with and we were presented with 4 apps, 3 for children and one for adults:
- Reader – Kids will have a blast learning sight words and their context and usage with the adorable Endless monsters. Each word features an interactive word puzzle with letters that come alive, and then a sentence puzzle with words that become what they describe. See the word “dog” as a barking dog, and the word “up” reach for the sky.
- Puzzingo – Puzzles in here help toddlers and kids develop spatial recognition, matching, tactile, and fine-motor skills. Visual and audio cues throughout the apps are designed to also make the game accessible for children with autism, kids in speech therapy, and children with special needs.
- Playtime Island – Choose and change the games you want and take them with you wherever you go! Tap on a balloon to view the range of fun filled games available. Add your child’s favourites and their CBeebies Playtime Island adventure is ready to begin!
- Hoop – this app is for adults. This app makes it easy to find and book local activities from newborn to 11 years old. You can search for different activities based on the locations, mostly they have available activities in London.
All the apps are available both of iOS and Android devices. They are very educational and interesting.
The Staff are also trained to help those with any additional learning needs. Head over here to find the most suitable session for your little ones.
Here is also a little video we made on the day 🙂
Overall, we are very happy that we attended this session. It is something really different where we learnt a lot.
Has any of you attended any of this Discovery sessions with Three? I would love to know your thoughts.
