Webinar : Get your Kids Enjoying Maths this Summer!

Download Duck on the Run App - Android and iOS

This 30-minute webinar focuses on how to get kids improving maths this summer.

Few children want anything associated with school or homework to interfere with FUN during the summer holidays. But less practice during the holidays could mean a tougher start of school term as children rebuild their skills to pre-summer levels.

What will you learn?

  1. Combining maths and fun in the app world
  2. The joy of exploration vs. answering questions
  3. How to encourage children to practice their maths

Monica McDonnell, the author of 5 star maths app Duck on the Run and Justin Smith, CEO of the Educational App Store will be leading the talk and taking your questions too.

Featured Speaker - Monica McDonnell

In 2017, Monica embarked on a journey to help academic researchers, underserved by the digital transformation, benefit in the same way as for-profit industries. The concept behind Duck on the Run is to create a platform to bring families and researchers together, with a common interest of improving math and numeracy. In order to make the app more entertaining, she reused the characters her 8 year old daughter had created for her cartoon series: A witty duck, a grumpy pig and a fairly stupid hen.
