A promising development for mLearning

| June 10, 2010

Startup KwiqApps has received funding for a word search app [App store link] for the iPad. The company is currently devising additional ed apps for iPhone, iPad and Android systems. KwiqApps’ founder, Yadong Liu, believes the iPad is the perfect platform for learning apps for children because of the interactivity it affords.

Educational apps aren’t a new development, but the iPad offers a new playground for developers of learning apps to play in.

One of my favorite ed apps for the iPad is Brushes [App store link], a paint program. You may have seen artist Jorge Columbo’s work with this program on one of several issues of the New Yorker. Here’s a video describing the “portable art studio.” It’s amazing- it takes finger painting to an unheard of level!
