Lock & Learn™ is a handy app, which allows parents to control a child’s phone by locking it in pre determined schedules at key periods during the day.
The child has the ability to unlock it by answering some multiple choice questions from an existing database of thousands of key stage questions developed by teachers. ( www.educationquizzes.com )
Phone use is a real worry for most parents but this app is a ground breaking way to allow the child to still have access to their phone (and the safety this offers them) but the access is time restricted. During the selected schedules the child has to answer 10 multiple choice questions, and get the percentage correct that you decide, in order to gain access to their device.
If the child spends homework time Whatsapping their best friend or trawling Instagram or Facebook the parent can simply apply a lock schedule not allowing the option of answering a question to retrieve their apps.
Phones are useful, gone are the days when children went out and came back at dusk without the parents having a clue where they were but its all about balance. The kids want their phones to connect with their world but the parents equally want the children to have phones so they can contact them at any one time and know they are safe.
Lock and Learn™ is a catalyst whereby children can learn that sometimes you have to do something you don’t like (answer questions) to get long term rewards (phone use).
A quick trawl of the internet brings up numerous sites extolling the virtues of quizzes for learning.
• Increased student participation
• lowered failure rates
• Improved exam scores
•better overall course grades
Taking part in quizzes strengthens memory by increasing long-term memory retention so really is a win, win situation.
