January's App of the Month is DoodleCast for Kids. This App allows preschoolers to draw, create videos, and practice their Narrative Skills. DoodleCast was also recently voted the "best App for younger children" at the 2012 KAPi Awards, part of the Consumer Electronics Show.
The App gives kids a list of images and adjectives, allowing them to draw and record voice-overs. Their descriptions are then made into short videos which can be emailed or uploaded to YouTube.
Doodling has never been this fun! Grownups are sure to also love the educational elements of this engaging activity. Children can illustrate their knowledge both visually and verbally.
DoodleCast for Kids is designed by Zinc Roe Inc. and can be found online for iPad users.
