LUV how my stories are judged on creativity & not handwriting / spelling..."
During COVID-19, kids confined at home are becoming more and more addicted to screens.
Whether it's YouTube or Fortnite, Snapchat or TikTok, all of these apps aim to maximize the time your child spends staring Zombie-like into the digital abyss.
Story Squad = a parent's SECRET WEAPON!
Our app uses small doses of screen-time to maximize your child's time in "Creative Mode" with a pencil in hand scribbling down original stories and drawings.
Story Squad springs storytellers into action by partnering them up in creative challenges.
Kids become masters of their craft by:
1. reading new chapters,
2. uploading their own drawings & handwritten fan fiction,
3. giving feedback on each others' work,
4. sharing points in a squad-vs.-squad matchup,
5. seeing whether their squad's portfolio wins.
After seeing kids reach for their phones the moment class ended, I saw the effects of screen-time on my 6th graders:
- poor eye contact
- a "drop-down-menu mentality" for right answers
- a culture of perfectionism emerged
^^ These disappear when kids get to be creative.
