Have you heard the buzz? Perennial favorite unit study author, Amanda Bennett, has just released the first in a brand new line of products — Touch Go Learn™. We have used Unit Studies by Amanda Bennett in our homeschool for years, but these are not the unit studies you’ve come to expect from Amanda — this is a whole new technological breakthrough — interactive PDF apps created for your computer, tablet or smartphone — iPad, Kindle Fire, Android are all compatible. You just need a PDF reader like Adobe Reader for iOS or FoxIt Mobile PDF.
As long time fans of all things Amanda Bennett, I was thrilled when she gifted the very first app — American Elections 2014 — to Ben to try out. He’s got it all downloaded on his iPad to work on today, so I’ll share more about what he thinks in a few days, but because I know the quality and research of everything Amanda does, I wanted to go ahead and let you know about it now, while it’s on sale AND you can get a free lapbook to go along with it. But I can tell you right away, that similar to Download N Go, all you need is the app. The primary resource for these studies in the internet (though there is a resource list for those of you with kids who will want to dig even deeper).
