Free online literacy program
Lalilo is a web-based educational software for K-2 teachers and students. It offers comprehensive coverage of early literacy skills and personalized and differentiated instructions. It helps students learn through adaptive lessons. On the other hand, teachers can use the app's dashboard to monitor the progress of the whole class, as well as individual students. Lalilo has a clean and focused visual style that looks more contemporary. It leans on artificial intelligence to offer the students the targeted exercises. Students will journey through different worlds and meet cartoon characters as they learn. Along the way, they will also read books, complete activities, and progress on a well-structured learning path.
Making learning fun
Lalilo is a free online learning tool for kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd-grade students and teachers. Since it caters to younger students, it comes with a design that will make learning fun for them. It introduces different worlds where students must go through to collect badges and unlock stories. Each story is vocabulary-rich, teaching students about nature and animals in engaging and fun ways. Moreover, the reading lessons are also comprehensive, with extensive coverage of every letter sound and word family.
Lalilo also offers flexible personalization, assigning specific lessons and letting kindergartners work through the built-in learning progression. Ultimately, the app's success lies in its adaptive exercises and its ability to pinpoint and adjust to students' strengths and weaknesses. However, by providing student-based lessons, progress monitoring will be extra hard for teachers. Even though it has a dashboard for that, teachers will still need to keep an eye on their students to make sure they are learning.
All in all, Lilo is a good child education app to use. The lessons are interactive and visually appealing without distracting the students. Still, there are some issues with the activities, as they lean heavily on audio-based instructions and could use a little textual reinforcement. Moreover, the lessons could use some more inventive activities or creative breaks. Finally, the stories—while varied and fun—are written by Lalilo, so don't expect recognizable authors.
