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.

This lesson is a quick overview of all the stages a scientist goes through in the scientific process. Firstly, a scientist thinks about what they already know about a topic. This leads them to ask questions about what they don't know. They will choose one question to focus on and perfect it. Next, the scientist will come up with a fair test by determining their independent variable, dependent variable, and controls. Now, they will hypothesize or predict what will happen. After this, they are ready to do the experiment making sure to carefully record methods. With the information or data they collect in the experiment, scientists then record their results perhaps by producing graphs. After this, the scientist uses their knowledge to interpret the results and form conclusions. Lastly, it is important for scientists to share their findings with the world either in an oral or written form.

## Recreational screen time

Kids can use the screen time minutes they earned to unlock the apps selected by their parent e.g. games, social media, streaming, etc.

## Out of time

When screen time minutes run out, kids are locked out and need to complete more learning in 1Question to earn more time.

Our micro-courses are developed and delivered by qualified educators from around the world.
