Are they in sync? micro-lesson
Do you struggle with balancing your kids’ screen time with their education? Say hello to 1Question, the app that solves this problem with a fun twist! Our app lets your child earn screen time minutes in their favourite apps by watching educational videos and correctly answering quiz questions. And the best part? You get to decide which apps to lock behind learning using 1Question.
Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.
When we are programming more than one thing, we need to make sure that they are working in sync with each other so that the program runs correctly. To make the animation work properly, the sprites need to be in sync. “Please don't eat me.” The fish is saying, “Please don't eat me,” and then running away before the cat has reached it. The instructions are not in sync. We have to experiment with the wait times to get the characters to work in sync with each other. The fish was speaking too soon so I have increased the amount of time that it needs to wait. Let's see if I've increased the wait time correctly so that it works better, and they are now in sync. “Please don't eat me,” much better. Head on over to scratch.mit.edu and use everything that we've learned to create your own wonderful animation.
Kids earn more screen time by answering fun educational questions.
Here are some example of questions about this video that kids may be asked in the 1Question app to earn screen time.

Recreational screen time
