in #CASE you missed it… Alexa Helps Kids Do Homework
Alexa recently made headlines for helping a kid cheat on homework, but Amazon’s virtual voice assistant can actually be an honest tool to enrich your kids intellectually. Here’s how Alexa can help your little ones academically.
Math computations - Alexa can do complex math problems, so if you ask her, “Alexa, what is ⅛ times 2/9?” She’ll give the right answer. Enable skills like Smart Math to boost math knowledge.
Dictionary and thesaurus - Your young student can save time by asking Alexa for definitions or synonyms and antonyms instead of looking them up.
Learning a foreign language - Alexa can understand English, Spanish, German, Italian, and Japanese on its own, but use the third-party service Daily Dose to work around that. Say, “Alexa, open Daily Dose” to learn one of its 34 different languages.
Computer science help - Help boost your child’s computer science skills with one of these Alexa skills. For basic computer quizzes, say, “Alexa, open Computer Fundamentals." Or for more in-depth computer science knowledge, say, “Alexa, open Computer Trivia.”
Science projects - Alexa even has fun science projects for your kiddos using the Busy Hands skill. Just say, “Alexa, open Busy Hands” and you can choose from one of five kid-friendly projects, including Slime Making and Potato Battery.
Oh and did you know you can have Alexa stream Seattle’s BEST variety of the 80’s and more.
