Learning Ladder Year 4
on 19 May 2003
I have recently purchased this item, and my 8 year old has been steadily working through the exercises. The Navigation through the system, and the exercises themselves are well structured, with appropriate questions at the right level. The downside is the lack of intelligence in the progression from one exercise to another and to the rewards section: While working on any given question, the programme advises the user "For the next exercise click on the roller skate" - unfortunately it does this at 5 second intervals even when the user is trying to do the exercise - eventually you have to turn the sound off or go mad. My son finds this very offputting. The explanation of how the reward system works, by giving the user a picture and how to use it, is repeated in full every time, rather than just once - again very irritating.
