My Dino Companion hooks kids immediately for two reasons. First, the user interface and professional sound ensures an immersive, unimpeded experience during game play. No detail has been ignored. Every action has been carefully executed and refined. Second, the app's concept encourages self exploration and provides appealing and continuous feedback both visual and oral. Hand, eye, logic, and foresight combine to produce a compelling, satisfying experience with each session completed.
The program is divided to several types of sessions:
- Practice Sessions - Using a unique adaptive algorithm, the practice session allows kids to explore various activities and games, matching each to their skill level and then gradually progressing them towards higher skill levels.
- Adaptive Test - The adaptive test was developed to help evaluate kids grasp for the current skill level they posses.
In addition, the adaptive test feature allows quick adaptation of the program to kids with more advanced skills. If your kid is already familiar with certain activities know-how, It's recommended to run a few adaptive tests to allow the program to fast forward to the current skill level.
- Individual Activities - This is library of topics the program currently has, allowing to focus on a specific activity in order to improve the kid's skill in that aspect. each activity has a set of levels or sub topics which can be manually picked by the kid or the parent.
- Individual Games - is a library of games currently available. similarly to the activities library, the games also contains levels allowing to practice different topics in various difficulty levels.
- Playground - during play, kids will collect stars for each activity the successfully perform. they can later use these stars to get toys, dinosaurs and playground facilities into their very own playground yard. The playground provides means to translate the kids sense of achievement into tangible toys they can collect which in turn drives them to perform more topics.
