Large learning programs that attempt to cover a wide range of learning material can either be a great one-stop shop, or, as this one is, rather mediocre. Kids Academy Talented & Gifted focuses mostly on math and ELA, but also has other fun and unique topics, such as chess. Though watching videos is a passive learning experience, the many videos are as engaging as can be and most concepts are explained clearly. The games are of average quality and tend to be standard multiple-choice options dressed up in fun graphics. They're also not always explained well. And, disappointingly, the overwhelming bulk of the material consists of a huge library of good old-fashioned worksheets. Kids Academy Talented & Gifted adds the fun of completing the worksheets on the screen or on paper (and then taking a photograph of the completed worksheet). However, the worksheets themselves aren't anything special, and when the worksheets are corrected they don't always catch correct answers, which can be very frustrating. And there's no feedback for helping kids understand what they may have done wrong. Though there is some decent learning content, it may not be worth the high subscription price.

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.
