Ansel & Clair: Paul Revere’s Ride, by Cognitive KidCognitive Kid is one of those companies that will go down in history as being one of the first to develop outstanding learning content, where discovery is the model & play is the focus, where students love it as much as the teachers and every school considers it a must have! Cognitive Kid Changes The Way History Will Be Taught With Ansel & Clair Ride With Paul Revere. Let’s share some feedback from the students during round one. When kids were asked to respond why they thought it was a good way to learn, the responses were plain and simple. “Because it teaches important history stuff in a fun to play way.” Or, the let me get right to the point comment, “Made boring history fun.” Kids approached this app eagerly and surprised us by the amount of time spent exploring and discovering each individual scene with complete focus. We were expecting them to be everywhere at once and then back track to go scene by scene. They searched every conceivable corner thoroughly before they proceeded to the next event. Kids entered each new scenario with energy and enthusiasm. The Google map addition was a favorite. This feature gives kids a visual representation and a deeper understanding of the area that text alone could not supply. The travel log is a wonderful way for kids to keep track of the: who, what, when, where, why and how. Kids love taking the pictures, which makes the camera another favorite feature. The option to write notes gives this real classroom value. Another new addition is the fill in the blank at the bottom of the page after  a photo has been taken, which is then inserted into the travel log. The photo booth is also a new fun feature that reinforces the historic figures names and contributions.
