Every Thursday the Facebook group ‘Educational App Talk’ E.A.T. organizes a chat on different educational topics and features a variety of hosts. Participants are teachers, educators, parents, authors, and developers of educational applications. Chats are organized either as a presentation of innovative applications, done by the developer/company or as a broad discussion, where all participants share their opinions, knowledge, and experiences.
The next "EAT" chat will be on 11/8/18
HOST: Howard Katz
TOPIC: Making ABC's FUN with 3D Dynamic Characters
abcJump: the ABC Alphabet game
abcJump helps your child learn the alphabet in a fun, interactive way. To play the game, your child simply needs to find and touch each letter of a randomly rearranged alphabet in order from A to Z. Easy peasy, but challenging too. There is no such thing as a wrong answer and no penalties, only the fun of successfully finding your way to the end of the alphabet. If you want your child to be a bit more challenged, the game can be scored, with speed bonuses for quick responses.
abcJump’s letters are vivid and three-dimensional, unlike the cartoon-like characters found in most alphabet apps for kids of this age. Using Apple's hallmark animation and graphic effects, abcJump provides a rich visual and auditory experience that will enchant and delight your child, and you as well. The game is designed to make kids feel as if each letter they're interacting with is real and tangible. The app has an intelligence and verve that will engage everyone in your family and provide hours of fun for both you and your child. Developed by Howard Katz

Over the next 20-years, she was a software engineer, a web designer, a database administrator, and an information systems analyst. Prompted by their grandkids’ math questions and problems, Tatyana and her husband (who is the software developer) decided to reach more children helping them to master basic math skills. They published a few tablets, phone and desktop applications for arithmetic practice. Tatyana likes to read and travel.
