BigIQKids.com, a leader in on-line learning, announces the launch of http://www.BigIQBee.com, a free educational site that celebrates the growing popularity of competitive spelling by leveraging Web 2.0 and advanced interactivity.
Designed for students K-7, BigIQBee contestants find themselves backstage at a spelling bee where they receive final instructions before heading out to the lectern. Under the bright lights and gaze of a supportive audience, contestants are presented with grade appropriate spelling words by Jake -- the avatar moderator. Each word is given alone and then used in a sentence. The contestants have 90 seconds to type in their answer. Misspelled words mean elimination while correct answers are rewarded with advancement and the opportunity of increasing their ranking and a chance to earn a spot on the Top 5 Spellers' podium.
Simulating the pressure-paced atmosphere of a live competition, BigIQBee is an excellent educational resource for kids and the classroom. "Parents and teachers love this site as an engaging and educational alternative to children surfing the web and playing video games. Kids love the interactive nature of the program along with the competitive environment that allows them to see how their spelling skills stack up against other students from around the world," says Debra Marcionette, Founder and CEO of BigIQKids.
"We are happy to offer BigIQBee free of charge and think it's a great opportunity for parents, teachers and young learners to experience an on-line resource similar in design and presentation to the award winning educational applications found at BigIQKids.com," says Debra. "From day one, our mission has been to produce unparalleled e-sources for conscientious students who want to be on-line and learning. BigIQBee is truly unique and representative of our advanced technologies and commitment to e-learning."
