QUEENSBURY, N.Y., Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Do you have a cellphone crazed tween or teen?. Trying to get our children off of the cellphone or computer long enough to utter a few sentences has been a challenge. With a new app parents can lock their children's cellphones until they answer questions in Science, Math, and History. Children must answer questions each time they open their cellphone or any of the coveted apps on their cellphone.
"Smartphone adoption among American teens has increased substantially and mobile access to the internet is pervasive. One in four teens are "cell-mostly" internet users, who say they mostly go online using their phone and not using some other device such as a desktop or laptop computer." According to a recent study by Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project.
Teens will open up their phones between 25-100 tomes a day to play games, login to facebook, use the internet, or text friends. StudyLock gives parents control over excessive usage by implementing education into teen cellphone use. Teens are not going to use their cellphones less. Better to make them learn every time they use their smartphones, tablets and computers.
For the diciplinarian of the family, StudyLock could be like a belt to the rear for todays techie teens. Parents can configure the device to open off of standby with 20 question and then another 20 questions for each app they want to open. Yikes.
But for parents serious about their childrens education there is more. StudyLock has a unique grading system incorporated into the app which grades children's performance in each subject and overall. The grades are emailed to parents so they may monitor a childs performance and identify strong and weak subjects. Premium members are afforded indepth anylitics to theit childs cellphone usage and interaction with the app.
But it is not all bad news for kids.The grading system used to determine subject grades is also used to determine winners of prizes. Children can win prizes such as iPads, new cellphones, and money toward college scholarships just by using their cellphones.
StudyLock gives parents a new tool in their quest for education in an age of digital distraction.
