Featured App: Read with Phonzy by MeowTek

Read With PhonzyRead with Phonzy by MeowTek is a free universal app for iOS which features speech recognition to understand how well kids pronounced words using a character named Phonzy who provides prompts on the words.  The app requires that you opt in via email to use it and understand the terms and conditions.  It utilizes speech technology which recognizes and assesses the specific word that you are focusing on in the sentence.  It works best with children and does work well in a noisy environment like a busy home or a place where there is background noise.  As children pronounce words correctly, they can unlock the word which is then put into a gallery.  It also helps kids build confidence in reading (especially sight words) and improves skills of sentence building and thinking quickly.  We tested the app in a variety of environments including with a television on in the background, at a local park and in a classroom with other children.  Each time Phonzy was able to zero in and understand the words being spoken without picking up the ambient noise.

One of the great things for me about the app was that I could help my son focus in on specific word types which he would learn and then as he got better with the pronunciation we were able to go back and re-listen to where he might have previously stumbled.  The app helps you correctly pronounce words and encourages children to read out loud – without a lot of corrections “in the moment” which then helps to build self confidence and sounding out skills.  MeowTek collects the audio recordings to improve the speech technology of the app and increase recognition, but no personal information about your child is collected.  Phonzy currently focuses on key words and important phrases, with the end goal of understanding the entire sentence.  The app is PRIVIO certified which means that MeoTek has COPPA compliant privacy practices to protect your child’s information and the verification via email is the method of ensuring that a parent understands that their child is using the app.

To use the app, Phonzy presents the user with a simple sentence similar to the one above with one specific word highlighted.  Your child reads and records the sentence and if the highlighted word is pronounced correctly, you get the object which is then placed in your gallery.  The words presented are appropriate for children from late kindergarten through mid-elementary school or approximately end of grade 3 according to the ones that I saw.  My son gained huge amounts of confidence when reading with Phonzy aloud because I wasn’t always trying to correct him and he didn’t feel “pressured” to perform on the spot.  My son liked that Phonzy would recognize his words most of the time and that he could easily re-record them as needed.

iPhone Screenshot 2

Phonzy is currently working to understand additional speech and speech recognition technology.  Currently, Phonzy is programmed to understand the specific highlighted words, very occasionally he will misunderstand a user however, as my son used the app more we found that Phonzy was correct in 18/20 trials.  The data collected from the app is made anonymous and is used to build and improve on speech recognition technology, it is never shared with any third parties and neither are the actual recordings.  I also loved that I could save the sentences that my son was saying and share them with his speech therapist to show his progress over time.

Overall, this is a great free app that encourages children to increase the number of words that they can read and earn some fun gallery prizes doing so.  It was a great self confidence booster for my son who struggled at times reading out loud and now has built up some confidence as he works through using the app and practicing new words.  We also liked knowing that we were helping Meowtek improve their speech recognition technology and perhaps, learn from some of the challenges that my son was having.

Download a Free App and Save the Park!



Games apps are a great way to get a public education program across to families with devices. They can be fun and engaging yet educational at the same time as it provides valuable information to players through the gameplay and content.

Save the Park is one such app that has been developed with the mission to inspire and encourage families to explore volunteering with the US National Park Service. Players pick up important lessons alongside 4 different national park volunteer characters (Environment Champion, Wildlife Lover, Citizen Scientist and Culture Concierge) as they help in the quest to save the parks in this fast-paced endless running game with a twist.

In this app, players control 2 characters (a national park volunteer and a Junior Ranger) simultaneously to complete tasks while avoiding obstacles in 3 different park terrains – forest, desert and coast. Challenges abound as they earn stars to unlock levels, score combos, find hidden objects and unlock sharable national parks postcards. It is a full-fledged game app that will please any endless runner game regulars with beautifully designed animated park terrains, smooth controls, varied missions, interesting power-ups and great sound effects. It’s challenging yet it is simple enough for children to play but they will need their quick reflexes and good hand-eye coordination. The game is fun and free to boot.

Players learn about the work that park volunteers do – protect animal habitats, plant trees, clean the environment, maintain trails, collect research specimens, help park visitors, etc. and why the tasks are important. They also learn interesting facts about specific national parks and the impact they can make as volunteers. Further resources are provided via links to the various real world volunteer opportunities in the US National Parks.

image

Save the Park was developed in partnership with American Express and the US National Park Foundation (NPF) in celebration of the 2016 National Park Service Centennial. For each download of Save the Park before December 31, 2016, The American Express Foundation will make a $1 donation (up to $50,000) to the NPF for her park conservation and stewardship work.

image

It’s time to save the parks that we love. You can do your bit by downloading the free app, Save the Park, get connected with your local parks to learn about their volunteer opportunities and support their conservation efforts as a family. There is no better time to start than now.

HomeselfeI’m not usually a big one for selfies but I’ve just discovered the kind of selfie that I do like- one that saves me money! I used the free #Homeselfe app to get a personalized report to see how I can save $$$ on my energy bills.

I must admit I cringe when I see how high our utility bills are every month. Although we have already done many energy saving steps, I am always keen to find more ways to save energy and money! Homeselfe is an easy, simple way to do a home energy audit without having to pay a professional 100’s of $ to do it for you. The app is free to download on iOS and Android and you personalize it by creating your own profile that includes information such as your home size, dwelling type, current water and energy bills, and utilities company. You do need to provide personal contact information to get the full report.

The app contains a digital mock up of a home and in each room you complete a questionnaire. Some of the answers I knew straight way such as “do you have low flow shower heads?”, others I had to check such as “is your water heater Energy Star certified?” I liked that I didn’t need to complete it all in one sitting, and that it was easy to see which rooms I had completed and which I still had items outstanding.

Once I completed the Homeselfe and personal profile, it took less than a minute to create my personalized report. I was pleased to see that the overall energy efficiency of our home was good, but it did still identify ways we could do even better. With the changes it suggested we could save almost $600 a year on our energy bills and it identified $850 worth of rebates that are available in our area.

I like to think of myself as energy conscious, and we had already done many of the more obvious changes such as choosing Energy Star certified appliances and low flow shower heads. Where Homeselfe was really useful was in making me think about the more hidden ways we waste energy. Did you know that the typical home looses 20-40% of the air that moves through the duct system? I didn’t, and as we haven’t had had any maintenance on our heating ducts in years that is our no. 1 priority now. We also need to look into improving our insulation.

Although #Homeselfe is designed to help you save money, it also shows you ways to help conserve the Earth’s precious resources and #livegreener which is a win/ win in my book! #EnergyConservation
