New Pause Feature
Need a break? Want to reward your kids with a weekend off? Now you can pause 1Question with the flick of a switch. Parent PIN protected for your peace of mind.
An unfortunate truth about parenting apps are that kids can tend to quit without you knowing. Until now 1Question has relied on trust that the child wont uninstall when they want that extra freedom.
Well no more! Android users now have access to uninstall protection for those parents who want a little more confidence. This extra layer of security will prevent your child from deleting 1Question from their phone.
And if they do manage to remove this setting we will notify you by email that something sneaky might be going down! This gives you a great chance to negotiate and change what they learn or how easily they earn screen time. It need not be the end of the world, just an opportunity to learn more about good screen time habits.
These features will be coming soon to Apple users in the next few months. This should be especially smooth for those households on Family Sharing setups.
If you’ve been using the app you’d be familiar with some of our issues around our content.
First, that we’re limited to just maths. It’s an important subject for sure, but we know you want more variety in what’s on offer.
Second, the questions can be a little dry. Quietly solving equations and text problems can get old fast.
And finally, the challenge of actually teaching the subject matter. Our questions are great if you have already been taught how to solve them, but not so good if you haven’t.
Well we’re excited to say we’ve addressed all of these issues with the introduction of Video Micro Courses.
We’ve been working with dozens of amazing teacher content creators to bring you more diverse, engaging and educational content.
These courses are made up of individual lessons broken into short 1 minute videos presented by trained and talented teachers from across the globe.
With these micro courses we’re introducing over 40 new subjects. They cover everything from Animation to Zoology, and much more.
Each is structured to guide your child through the skills they need to progress in subjects at school, develop essential life skills or harness their talents in their favourite hobbies.
At the heart of this are our amazing teachers. We’ve collaborated with professional teachers who are passionate about their subjects and masters at their craft.
Hailing from 4 different continents and covering different age groups and expertise, our super star teachers are that great mix of entertaining and educational.
Think of them as the tutor in your kid’s pocket waiting with a personalised lesson to complete before they play on their phones. These video micro courses will be popping up on your child’s question screens as we speak and we’ll link to some samples for you to check out.
