We've also announced that each iPad will come with it's own set of promo codes and now we're announcing that each set will include a code for The Social Express, a $90 app! (Currently on sale for $45 until the end of March!)
Please note that when we reviewed The Social Express, we only gave it four stars, mostly due to the high price. Obviously that's not an issue when you get the app for free!
...The app includes 16 interactive lessons with 30 total scenes, featuring the tween-looking Zack, Emma, and Sam (and Sunny the dog), that provide video-modeling examples and simple multiple choice-questions to help teach and reinforce social skills. The videos also have teaching tips for an adult to read before each video starts, such as "Keep your body facing the group."
Here is how the videos work: The app shows the two boys walking past a fire station and Zack says "When I grow up, I want to be a firefighter." Then, Sam, who is too busy playing a video game to listen properly, says "Yea! I finally beat this level!" Zack replies "What are you talking about?"
The app then says "Zack wants Sam to join him in a conversation. What should Sam do?" and presents two options for the child to choose from in the form of two thought bubbles that appear above Sam. One shows Sam happily talking to Zack and the other shows him continuing to play his video game while Zack walks away angrily...
