From Head to iPad, iPad Air and iPad Mini
We don't get tired of saying it, the iPad is a great educational device. Children enjoy using it and if we know how to choose apps well, we can use this time to learn good lessons.
In the App Store we find educational applications that focus on teaching basic things, such as: colors, numbers, letters, relationships, mathematical operations, etc, etc … But it is also possible to find apps that are capable of teaching important lessons and one of them could be Head.
De Cabeza is a simple app that focuses on something very important: explain to a child that not everything is black or white, but it depends on how you look at it.
How does it work?
As I said, De Cabeza is a very simple app. In it we did not find a very elaborate interface, with a lot of buttons and the like. Unlike, The app does not have any type of button and the only way to interact with her is by turning the iPad or touching on the screen at any point.
As soon as we open the app, we begin to show a series of illustrations and a small text. These illustrations have two completely different points of view and the text tells us what they represent in both views. Some examples will be:
"The acrbata, head is the strongest woman in the world."
"A man who flies, head on, is a man who falls."
"A fly, on its head, was a fly."
Illustrations, the center of the app
The iPad app is mainly based on a series of illustrations with two completely different views.
These are simple illustrations, but highly visual and with high quality finishes created by Alfonso Ochoa, developer of the app.
A background music to accompany us while using the app. It is a music that reminds us of the music boxes our grandmothers had. The meloda invites you to reflect and to realize that something that seems so simple, really hides a great lesson.
De Cabeza, an app that is used differently
We still see interactivity as the fact of touching buttons, whether physical or tactile as in the case of the iPad, but this can go much further and should not always be so. De Cabeza is an interactive app, although in a different way.
Instead of taking us to touch buttons to perform different actions, This app "forces us" to turn the tablet to better follow what you want to show us and to interact with her, so that we can learn the lesson she hides: "it all depends on how you look at it".
The best of Head
- It is a very simple app.
- Hide a great lesson, especially for the little ones.
- The illustrations have a great quality.
What we liked least about De Cabeza
- The number of illustrations is limited.
- Once you have seen all the illustrations, the only option you give us is to start over.
