24x7digital announces TeachMe: 1st Grade for iOS

Los Angeles, California – 24x7digital today is pleased to announce the release of TeachMe: 1st Grade, the third installment in the popular TeachMe series of educational apps for the iPhone and iPod touch. TeachMe: 1st Grade teaches four age-appropriate subjects to first grade children: sight words, addition, subtraction and spelling. TeachMe: 1st Grade’s unique TeachTech character recognition engine interprets a child’s written answers, helping to reinforce writing skills while teaching math and spelling.

TeachMe: 1st Grade keeps children engaged with a unique reward system where children earn coins to buy stickers to place in different scenes or to buy items for a virtual aquarium. The simple and intuitive user interface is designed to be child friendly, which allows children to play without help from an adult. An animated teacher (Mimi Mouse) gives verbal instructions and feedback to encourage the child to learn and succeed! In addition, the learning screens are colorful, fun and rotate between four different subjects so children don’t get bored.

TeachMe: 1st Grade is the only iPhone app which reads your child’s writing using TeachTech, 24x7digital’s writing recognition engine. Children write their answers for math and spelling questions and TeachMe: 1st Grade reads them using TeachTech. If your child needs help, TeachMe: 1st grade will show them how to write the correct answer including the proper stroke order.

Each child has an achievements screen which motivates and encourages learning by showing progress and levels for each topic. Parents can use this screen to quickly see progress of their child. Parents can select which subjects they want, set different difficulty levels, and even choose specific questions. Parents can also review performance history for each subject to check how their child is doing.
