This Move the Turtle. Programming for kids’ education app (by Next is Great) uses a friendly step-by-step graphic process to teach basic computer programming to kids as young 5 years of age and older. Not many people would think of introducing computer programming skills to kids this young, butthat is just what the developers at Next Is Great are all about, developing iOS applications that help kids expand their minds in the areas of math, science, and technology by creating “Brain Teasing Educational Apps.” This application is an introduction to basic programming skills to teach kids tasks which lead to procedures and starts to compound these steps to ultimately make a program. The method is very simplistic and kid-friendly, but with limited instruction, to stretch a child’s mind to get them to think outside the box on how to complete a task with a viable solution. This app has 3 chapters or learning packs each with a number of tasks that progress from the very basic in the first pack to much more advanced in the last pack. The benefit to this type of education app for kids is that it allows them to use their creative powers to come up with solutions for each task. The app also has a Compose area, which is really a free-play area where the user can use all the commands at their own pace and develop whatever program they can think up.
The Project area in this application is filled with loads of pre-completed projects ranging from the basic to advanced that can be viewed in order to see a solution, or copy the project to your very own library where you can call on it to be used in a new program, or edit to make a unique program. This app also allows for multiple users so it is great for different environments like family, school, church, etc. allowing the progress of multiple users to be saved within the application. Move The Turtle. Programming for kids is an excellent idea for an education app challenging young kids to expand their minds (in more ways than they probably thought they could) to create something rather cool and parallel to this Age of Technology. Be sure to watch the iPad video app demo for a complete demonstration of this application. Watch our other iPad video app demos . Crazy Mike

Move the Turtle. Programming for kids iPad App Developers Description
*** FEATURED BY APPLE in the “NEW & NOTEWORTHY” / EDUCATION section of the iTunes App Store! ***
*** Move the Turtle teaches children (ages 5+) the basics of programming (yes, we do mean coding!)
*** Challenges and rewards keep children (with parents’ assistance) & teenagers (on their own) engaged!
Move The Turtle is an educational application for iPhone and iPad that teaches children the basics of creating computer programs, using intuitive graphic commands.
Do you remember the Logo programming language? A friendly Turtle will introduce your child step by step to the basic concepts of programming in a colourful graphic environment. Who knows, maybe your child will be the next outstanding programmer!
By completing the tasks, one after another, your child learns:
*** how to plan complex activities composed of simple elements
*** how to reuse previously completed work
*** how to use graphics, spatial orientation and sound in programming
Your child will also become familiar with the notions of loops, procedures, variables and conditional instructions.
Programming is about more than completing tasks, it is also about implementing your own ideas using your imagination. With this in mind we give you the opportunity to create your own programs from scratch or based on our inspiring examples.
