Plato Clock - Fun Learning App App
A hands-on app to learn reading analog clock
Why did we create this app?
We are always keen to develop a hands-on-approach to learning. What better way to start this learning process rather than to offer a simple application for younger minds. This app was developed with that in mind. Moreover, there were articles out there that suggested a change in mindset towards reading digital clocks over analog clocks even among teens. As presented in these articles, https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/6135978/teenage-pupils-unable-to-tell-the-time/ and https://life.gomcgill.com/schools-are-removing-analog-clocks-from-classrooms-because-students-dont-know-how-to-tell-time, it appeared that even schools were considering replacing analog clocks with digital clocks. Though change in inevitable, there are certain things, though might appear trivial, need not be changed to keep our brains and minds active. We believe that this is one simple thing that need not be changed in schools.
What can this app do?
We have included hands-on drawing feature with different coloring capabilities to test out different times right on a clock. Moreover, we have included different examples, with answers that will pop-out. In addition, we also have included another question sheet to further enhance understanding in reading clocks. Further, to keep the kids engaged, we have included the Hickory Dickory rhyme tune part of the app.
Why did we name this app, Plato Clock?
There is an interesting story of Plato building an alarm clock on his own as a way to assist his students to come to class on time. This alarm clock was supposedly created in and around 4th century B.C.
Along the lines of that story, we created this app. We believe that education should not have an escapist attitude. Instead, right education should be about spicing up learning for the students to enjoy and remember things for a longer time.
