Mobile App to prepare both pupils and parents for the new school year in Australia

Mobile App to prepare both pupils and parents for the new school year in Australia

Australians, excited to kick-start the new school year with a bang?

The Learning Potential app which was launched in August last year, has been a big hit with parents. With more than 111,500 downloads to date, it was listed as #1 and #2 best free app in the Education category in Google Play and App Store following its launch.

First off, the app is all encompassing. It is germane to kids starting primary school, those preparing for boarding school, and others who want to thrive in year 12 and above. These are just some of the back to school updates for parents on the Coalition’s popular Learning Potential app.

“The free Learning Potential app is “filled to the brim” with more than 160 hints and ideas for parents to help get their children ready for the year,” said Minister for Education and Training, Senator Simon Birmingham.

The app will enable parents to give their children the best possible start to the school year.

“Beyond the essentials of sorting out books, bags and school uniforms, a new school year is a great time for parents to engage in their children’s education, and Learning Potential can help with a range of useful information, tips and advice,” Minister Birmingham said.

Useful content updates include:
· Five tips to get your little one ready to start preschool;
· Ways to get your child excited about primary school;
· Helping teenagers plan for success in year 11 and goal setting for life after school with useful links to career planning websites.

The app will continue to expand and improve throughout 2016 with regular additions of new content and continual enhancement of functionality.

“It’s great for busy parents, covering everything from boredom-buster games, to shopping with maths, to computer coding, managing cyber bullying and much more,” Minister Birmingham said.

“We all lead busy lives, but taking just 15 minutes each day to learn with your children can make all the difference in the long-term.”

Wrapping it up, this app is packed with informative articles and videos, tips and suggestions to assist parents to efficiently outline and plan their time with their children as well as allow children to start the school fresh and with a bang.
