The XO Tablet - the Perfect Tool for Summer Learning!

09 August 2013

The XO Tablet is the perfect tool for kids to prevent the ‘summer slide,’ a term used to describe the knowledge that is lost when young minds sit idle for three months while schools are closed for summer break.  

 

 

According to the authors of a report from the National Summer Learning Association, "A conservative estimate of lost instructional time is approximately two months or roughly 22 percent of the school year.... It's common for teachers to spend at least a month re-teaching material that students have forgotten over the summer. That month of re-teaching eliminates a month that could have been spent on teaching new information and skills. http://www.summerlearning.org

The XO Tablet offers world-class learning software customized to each child’s educational goals and curriculum. The XO Tablet lets kids explore subject areas with play-based learning apps and games based on occupations, like Engineer, Mathematician, Writer, Programmer, Teacher, and more! Kids can practice subject areas through educational apps and games, so minimal learning is lost when school begins again!  With a fun, hands-on approach, the XO Tablet brings collaboration and discovery to the learning process.

In addition to all of the great preloaded apps and games the XO Tablet offers, the tablet also contains 200 full-length E-books (in English and Spanish!) to fulfill summer reading requirements! From novels (Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina) to classic stories (A Little Princess and Anne of Green Gables) and children’s books (Peter Pan, Grimm’s Fairy Tales) the extensive list of books has something for every reading level!  

Just because you are learning, it doesn’t mean it can’t be fun! Explore your dreams this summer with the XO Learning Tablet! Available at Amazon.com, Walmart, and Target.com. For more information, visit www.xotablet.com
