A parenting app popular with Territory families that features hundreds of articles, activity suggestions and advice to help families with children of all ages is getting a refresh in time for the school holidays, thanks to the Coalition Government.
The Government’s Learning Potential app has been downloaded about 118,000 times since it was launched in August last year and the latest updates to it provide a range of new features. The updates include 45 new articles that provide a variety of activity ideas and parenting tips.
Country Liberals Senator for the Northern Territory, Nigel Scullion, said the Learning Potential app was free to download and easy to use.
“The app helps parents in their role as the first teachers in any child’s life and better allows them to complement the work of teachers and schools,” Senator Scullion said.
“The Government’s Learning Potential app gives parents ways to easily tap and share advice, tips and ideas on being actively involved in their child’s learning and to ultimately help boost their personal skills and education outcomes.
“Whether they’re in the high chair or when they’re in high school, the Learning Potential app has hundreds of articles, games and tips designed to help parents no matter what stage their children are at.”
Minister for Education and Training, Simon Birmingham, said the app offered parents trusted advice for any of the burning questions they had.
“Our updates build on the success of the popular Learning Potential app with new articles on a range of topics like how to teach children to read using phonics, whether handwriting or typing notes is best and managing stress during exams and activities for little ones designed to improve motor skills or encourage a love of science,” Minister Birmingham said.
