So, Who RE@L-LY Is Driving the Technology School Bus Today?

RE@L Logo 60px Here we were, merrily on our way on our RE@L Tech School Bus, having recently delivered the newly revised RE@L’s Babysitting Inc 2.0 to market on the Apple App Store. It’s one more example of RE@L’s dedication to our mission of continuous improvement of our products: so, here’s a new and better version of Babysitting Inc. Soon there will be more to come. We included new videos from RE@L kids to help the young entrepreneurs learn even more about the ins and outs of what it takes to be a top-notch, successful, wise, caring and safety-providing (whew!) baby-sitter.

As a part of our topical, weekly blog points-of-view for schools and homes, we thought to ourselves, why not include a blog that addresses both? So, we gave 14 year old Sam the wheel of our RE@L Technology School Bus and asked him to do a short video for us.SamShore2014

We asked him, what do you liked about Babysitting Inc?

Well, we found out he knew a whole lot more than how to drive the tech school-bus. He knew everything about the bus, how it worked, where we were going and, better than we did, the best way to get there!

In a nutshell, Sam looked at our Babysitting app in a way our own eyes could not: As the potential user of the product! Listen to what Sam has to say, in his own words, about Babysitter Inc and how to get the most out of this powerful, new and soon to be revised product, Click on the red link below, and the arrow on the screen:

Sam’s Guided Tour of the Babysitting Technology Bus

We learned so much from what Sam had to say, we are now using his words in our own promotions of the product. So, who is driving the Technology School Bus today? Why, it’s Sam, and a host of other young learners, all of whom know where they’re going and the best way to get there. They know the iPad; they know apps; they know good learning opportunities when they see it.

Listen up! It’s another RE@L message from real kids. More good things to come soon from Sam and his friends.

 Stay tuned to RE@L! It’s what’s RE@L-LY happening out there….
