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.

LeapFrogLeapFrog products were provided to facilitate this interview.  All opinions and nasally, loud voice (I had a cold) are my own.
