A couple of years ago I purchased an iphone for myself. And instantly, obviously, downloaded a few apps. And I was just blown away by what this machine could do.

The apps that I downloaded just broadened my horizon more than I could ever have imagined. And I thought wow, how about using this in kindergarten.

A year later the iPad was out and I could really see, because of the size of it, that this was something that Manaia Kindergarten was going to need.

So this past year we have been exploring apps for the children, for learning and we have been really passionate about getting real apps. Real apps for real in-depth learning. So by that, trying to steer away from more gimmicky apps and downloading apps that can extend children. So that when they are exploring they are going beyond what they might want to know. And so that through an app they can learn so much more and their learning just gets deeper and deeper and deeper. 

So when we are looking at things, for instance, the universe and planets or the stars, they start off with questions about the sun and we look at the apps and we can actually find them in the sky in the middle of the afternoon. And we can follow them and we investigated the transit of Venus through the iPad.

So downloading real apps that are not cartoony but will actually broaden children's horizons in the real world. So that's what we've been exploring at Manaia Kindergarten and looking for quality apps that will extend children's interest and learning.
