Navigating Educational Apps – An Interview With LeapFrog’s Dr. LeVos

Our kids are growing up in an ever-changing digital age.  Children are utilizing technology from earlier ages as a variety of technologies surround our everyday lives.  When used wisely, the right products can be effective tools to support learning and development.  But with a rapidly-expanding selection of apps and educational games – it can be challenging for parents to determine what to purchase.

For the second time, I  had the chance to interview child development and learning expert Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, the math and science development expert at LeapFrog’s learning team.  I asked her questions about identifying the best educational games and apps, limiting screen time, and the buzz surrounding the new LeapPad UltraShe gives some helpful tips about making informed choices that maximize fun learning opportunities for children.

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, I often feel overwhelmed with the plethora of gift giving options for children.  In my family, we don’t let the gifting get out of control.  We also want our selections to either help foster our children’s creativity or contain educational components that are entertaining enough to capture their interests.  I recently had the chance to interview child development expert Dr. Jody Sherman LeVos, the math and science development expert at LeapFrog’s learning team.  In the below video, she speaks about the best new, educational, and entertaining gifts to look for this holiday season.  Dr. LeVos also shares excellent tips regarding developmentally-appropriate gifts and top LeapFrog products.  Have a quick look over on LeapFrog!  I know I’m thinking about the Leap Pad 2 in hopes of reclaiming my iPad!
