Don’t you love it when one of your favorite companies comes out with something new? Me too! Social Thinking came out with a next step, Intermediate version of their Social Detective App! So to keep things easy and concrete 😉 here is what you need to know about this new member of the Social Thinking App family. If you want to check out my review of the Social Detective Beginner App click HERE.
-For 7 years old or older.
-To be used after social detective beginner
– Expands on foundational concepts from beginner app.
– Targets Smart Guesses ( when you use all your tools to figure things out and then make a guess about the situation based on what we know.)
– Uses 14 video clips and 42 questions to allow for practice of skills
– Target identifying character thought, smart guess, and making a plan.
I have found my students who did well with the beginner app, did well with the intermediate one as a ‘ next step‘ in solidifying their understanding of flexible thinking concepts.
One thing, the videos are a bit dated, but it actually turned out to be an advantage because we could have discussions about people’s differences in style and what you can say and do when you encounter someone who may have a different style. *cough, middle school and high school, cough*.
You can watch this app preview to get a nice walk through of the app and see it in action.
Like what you see? You can download the app from the App Store.
