It is easy to put an app in the App Store℠.
It is hard to make one that harnesses what we know about learning to engage and build skills. Omega Labs is mobilizing the education revolution. We make apps for the iPad, iPhone, and iPad touch.
Our mission is to revolutionize education with dynamic and engaging apps that provide meaningful feedback to educators, students, and parents about learning outcomes.
- Instruction should adapt to learning style, speed, retention and previous knowledge to keep the student in the zone of proximal development.
- Hot links are a resource, not instruction.
- Students are self-motivated to learn when presented with instant feedback and intermittent rewards.
