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. 

Learning time​

Kids learn by watching short, engaging video lessons.

Many games that we can play on the computer require us to answer questions and choose the correct answer. What is 5 x 4? We input our answer by typing in the correct answer and pressing the tick. The output is that the starfish move forward, and the score has gone up by one. The second question says, “How many months are there in a year?” If we enter an incorrect answer, the output is that the starfish moves backwards, and the score doesn't change. For games like this to work, the questions need to be closed questions. That means there can only be one correct answer. The Ask command can be found in the Sensing tab. We drag it across and then we can change the question to what we want it to be. Remember, this needs to be a closed question so that there is only one correct answer. Is this a closed question, what month comes after September? What about this one, what's your favorite color?
