This paid education app is an easy way for kids to create projects and presentations using technology with customized images, videos and slides. The option to include embedded video can be a great option to build confidence during presentations for kids who don't enjoy public speaking. Group projects can also be merged easily, as students create their individual slides and coordinate them for a larger presentation. For less than $7, there are many features included that allows kids to have flexibility and creativity. In terms of filters on the web search, though obvious curse words and sexual content won't produce an image, kids who are intelligent enough to search for alternative words (i.e. sexual versus sex) can find inappropriate content. Along those lines, there may be terms they want to use ("gay" or "lesbian") but can't search using the filter, so they can do an outside search and use images that way if necessary. Parents should monitor where where kids publish, because items can be uploaded to the 30hands community from the app. Overall, since many kids with learning disabilities struggle with writing and drawing, a little help organizing their pictures and writing a script, a video presentation using this app could minimize a lot of frustration and improve the child's independence and sense of accomplishment.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
