Doodly - Easily Create Whiteboard Doodle Videos In Minutes! Leap With Alice. Leap With Alice is incredibly excited to announce our official partnership with the Amazing Explorers Academy.

Leap With Alice

The Amazing Explorers Academy is a groundbreaking day care and early childhood education program that is setting the standard for pre-school learning. This innovative daycare and early childhood education concept is currently expanding through franchised and corporate-owned locations in Florida and other states. At Amazing Explorers, we believe that it’s never too early for children to develop a genuine passion for learning.

Recent studies have shown that the first five years of a children’s life are the most impressionable, and that study habits and interests develop during these early years can set the tone for their later education, as well as their later career.

A Parents’ Choice Silver Honor Award Winner The NGAkids Art Zone app from the National Gallery of Art introduces children not only to the experience of great artwork, but also to the creative process of producing great artworks.

NGAkids Art Zone

Through the manipulation of paintings spanning hundreds of years and numerous styles of art, children are free to explore the elements that go into a painting. In the classical and impressionist designs, they are free to explore and modify the objects of the paintings, from the sky and the background, through the middle and the foreground, adjusting for perspective and adding and subtracting characters and scenery at will. Some of the characters in the paintings can be animated for an extra laugh.

In the strongest part of the app, that of the more modern art styles, the artist can explore color and layering paints, producing works that are similar in style to the famous work but ultimately entirely original. –Parents' Choice Foundation, 2015.

There is a certain magic found in rolling up your sleeves and tackling a project head on, an undeniable sense of empowerment that results from solving problems and manifesting big ideas. In essence, that’s the soul of the maker movement — creative individuals from all walks of life united by an insatiable desire to improve the world around them.

Although synonymous with 3D Printing, it extends far beyond a single technology or buzzword. Truth be told, the maker movement represents the instinctual drive of our species to ascend ever upwards: to innovate, design, and construct a better tomorrow.

Pokémon Go has changed the trajectory of the world on a scale just slightly smaller than Google Search and Facebook, but still to a magnitude that will be felt through all industries in the coming years. To many, it looks like a very simple game that incorporates a few unique and compelling features. But this game has taken technologies from niche research and gaming communities and thrust them into the world’s consciousness. Suddenly everyone understands what “augmented reality” means and how an artificial digital world can be mapped onto the real physical world.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) According to Code.org, 90 percent of parents in the U.S. want their children to learn computer science—it will be crucial for many jobs in the near future—but only 40 percent of schools teach it. Critics claim that it is mainly the more affluent schools that offer computer science courses, thus denying those who attend poorer schools the chance to learn necessary skills.

A focus on STEM is not enough: Code.org also reports that while 70 percent of new STEM jobs are in computing, only 7 percent of STEM graduates are in computer science. It is imperative that savvy schools begin to focus some STEM resources on computer science and programming. CodeCombat - Learn how to code by playing a game.
