so when disney started testing out their new imagicademy apps, i knew i needed to try it out with my class! i love incorporating technology into the classroom. it's relevant, fun, and really engages the kids. and the imagicademy apps don't disappoint! the app is made up of mickey's magical math world and the imagicademy app for parents, which provides tons of great articles and data about what your child is doing on the app!
my class loved playing around with mickey and his friends as they built rockets, sorted items, and even watched little animations in this fun, space-themed app. and as their teacher, i felt good about using classroom time on this app because i knew my kids were being taught basic math concepts as they played. mickey's magical math world made learning these concepts so much fun for my students...they were excited every time they opened a new game on the app and one of mickey's friends popped up! unlike so many other apps that use rote memorization, mickey's magical math world uses a series of games that build on each other as the learner progresses.
and if you're a teacher or parent, you know how hard it can be to come up with lesson plans or activities that your kids love! the imagicademy app for parents is an awesome resource. i loved checking out the articles and ideas that the app provided, and the app was a great way to celebrate my students' creativity and curiosity! and best of all, both of these apps are free to download exclusively for ipad in the apple app store!
