Using the iPad for Learning
~ Education Can Be Fun; Interactive Cards that Teach ~
Cypher Kids Club i3D Interactive Cards
   
Being a former technology teacher, two things I love talking about most are education and technology. I love when tech devices can be paired with great tools for an educational value. My kids love playing on the iPad, but some of the games they get have no educational value and I really don’t like them spending a lot of time playing games like that. On the other hand, when I find something I feel has great educational value, then I don’t mind them spending time on the iPad. These great tools I found are called Cypher Kids Club i3D Interactive Cards. They have three different ones right now; letters, numbers, and wild animals. We tried them all and loved them all, although the wild animals were their favorite. 
We picked up these cards at our local Target. You can find them right in the Electronics section in the iPad aisle. The card packs are $29.99 a piece. The app to use with the pack of cards is free. You need a different app for each pack of cards. The app is very easy to upload. You can find it in your iTunes store or scan the QR-code right off the box.

5. Exploration: Let‘s you hear facts about the animal, letter, or number and be interactive with the screen
6. Snapshot: Makes the card 3D to view the card visually 
7. Next, just place the AR card so the code is facing the camera and hold it up to the camera (behind the iPad) until the card registers

8. You will see the visual appear and hear all the facts

9. If you don’t get the angle you like you can move the card around to view a different angle

10. The app will have you interact with what is on the card and the kids will learn many facts and play at the same time (you can use these cards with your iPad, iPod, or iPhone)

My kids have already learned so much about animals from these cards, and they love playing with them over and over. I also love the letters and numbers for my son who is 5-years old and just learning to read. He loves technology, so this is a perfect way for him to have fun and learn all at the same time. These Cypher Kids i3D Interactive Cards will make a great gift for your kids this holiday season! Pick them up today at Target today!

  1. I can’t wait to try this! Our Target isn’t one of the fun lucky ones that actually carry this, so ours has to be shipped to us. :( But we should be getting it in the next week or two..I hope. :) I can’t wait to show it to my kids!! They will love it!

  2. Aren’t the Cypher cards amazing! Hayley uses hers all the time. For the price, it is a fantastic gift!

  3. I’ve heard wonderful things about Cypher cards– what a great gift idea!

  4. Wow! I have never heard of Cypher Cards before but I love animals. :) I am off to Walmart today and will look for these. Thanks!

  5. As a computer teacher and mother I see how much children are being influenced by the technology around them. It is always best to expose them to educational things and I love the program you are promoting. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I love how interactive technology is becoming! This is a fun way to learn about animals, I’m sure. I’ve been wanting to try their letter cards with my son!

  7. I love your awesome clear photos that make it easy to see how amazing these cards are in conjunction with the ipad! What a new new idea (reminds me a bit of webkinz) :)

  8. My daughter has the Wild Animal cards and she plays with them for hours and hours and hours! I don’t mind because I think it is such a great learning tool for kids!

  9. This is so neat. I had no idea about them!

  15. These sound pretty neat but I don’t have an ipad.

  16. This looks like a neat idea. Somedays, it seems that the kids can work something like an ipad better than many adults I know.

  24. Awesome review, lucky kids being able to learn in such a fun and modern way, they look like they love it!

  25. I have never heard of Cypher Cards before but looks really cool!

  29. This is awesome!!!! My kids love our ipads, off to download now!! Thanks for sharing!

  30. I haven’t tried out these cards yet, I need to get some. I know my nephew would love to play with the iPad app!

  31. They look like they are having a lot of fun, thank you for sharing your experience!

  32. Undeniably believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks|
