Geography Natural Features 1
by: Appa Apps • 17
An introduction to natural geographical features, suitable for students studying Geography from grade 6 onwards. This educational game uses 50 photos to illustrate 50 different features, with interesting facts about each one.
Students hear a feature spoken and choose the matching photo. After six right in a row, Race Mode starts automatically. It asks questions at speed to test the students' memory and comprehension of the features just covered, before continuing with new ones. At the end of the race, students can see how well they have done relative to their other races. The game gradually focuses on any features that the students have difficulty recognizing, and speeds up as competence is gained.
By contrast to Race Mode, Story Mode slowly introduces new features by saying them as the photos are shown, allowing students to quietly look, listen and learn.
The game is controlled by on-screen gestures which are simple to demonstrate and easy to use, and the game can be played without voice prompts.

I love that it adapts to the users level. The explanations are very simple and easy to remember. I don't like that the photos zoom in and out in thumbnail mode so that it's difficult to recognize the correct image. I think it would also be helpful if there were several different images per term so that a generalized understanding can be reached. Lastly I recommend more detail in the listening mode so that a student can connect strongly with the meaning of each term before being quized on them. Overall I like the simple UI, real photos and distraction free learning. With some fine tuning this could be an awesome educational app. For now it just happens to be good.
