LessonBuzz targets the common learning needs and fundamental principles of developing literacy in children and reinforces the skills that are a prerequisite of English curricula.
LessonBuzz has been written by the one teacher and developed specifically for the iPad to take advantage of the features and benefits of mobile technology and it is not dependent on Internet connectivity once downloaded.
When a LessonBuzz app is purchased from the App Store it is yours to use continuously with no ongoing or renewable subscription costs. LessonBuzz pricing also reflects the new paradigm of low cost applications that mobile technology offers.
All the LessonBuzz material was written by Marie Cullen, a qualified teacher of over 35 years experience. (see 'About the author')
Once downloaded from the Apple App Store you do not require an Internet connection to use LessonBuzz, so it can be used anywhere and anytime with mobile stop/start flexibility.
LessonBuzz is an integrated English literacy program that will develop, challenge and provide satisfying activities for children. It is a multi-dimensional program rather than a single focus app. LessonBuzz has an unrivalled depth of material with each app containing 30 lessons and up to 20 activities or tasks for each lesson.
LessonBuzz also tracks performance and incorporates voice instructions for the younger levels and engaging, amusing and informative texts together with custom illustrations throughout.
LessonBuzz provides an intervention in a child’s learning process. It is a high-quality structured program that builds on a child’s strengths and develops independence in work habits. It is a high-quality resource that can be used by teachers or parents to help move children to their potential in literacy.
With LessonBuzz you simply purchase the appropriate level App for the module (Reading Comprehension, Language, Writing or Spelling) you want from the Apple App Store and download it to your iPad and it is yours to use continuously. Apps can also be purchased in year level bundles.
Yes, Family Sharing does work with LessonBuzz purchased apps, but not with the legacy in-app purchase versions.
An update to the Literacy 1-6 in-app-purchase app resulted in the app crashing for some users. In this situation, delete the app from your iPad and then reinstall it. Once reinstalled, use the 'Restore Purchases' function in the Store section of the utilities (blue) tab on the module selection screen. This will resolve this issue.
