Do we really want to give kids more screen time?
Finally something good kids can do on their iPad. –Elena
Your courses teach creativity and perseverance – which is precisely where schools fall short. – Maya
JAM is inspring young generation to develop their true potential. –Anita
We no longer fight about screen time. I’m confident that he is actually getting value out of the time he spends online and he loves it. Bravo! –Lynn
I love that my son is actively learning new things on his screens, and that we aren’t fighting about “screen time” and “brain-rot” this summer. – Albert
I love how interactive the learning is and how kids get to connect with other kids all over the world who have similar interests. –Karana
Are JAM courses flexible with different schedules and learning styles?
My kid is enjoying the drawing class and likes that she doesn’t have to do the lessons sequentially in order to “unlock” the next lesson. – Jennifer
I enjoy this program for my child (11 years old) because it can be done at his own pace and can fit around our busy schedule. –Ruth
My 10 yr old daughter was not sure about doing an online class for drawing but she likes working at her own pace and sharing her work. – Shannon
My daughter loves it. It keeps her engaged and progressing in her skill level. It’s nice that she can access it on her own time, when her schedule has more free time. I would rather her do this than play a game on an app. – Dave
My son has autism and is very drawn to technology. It’s really nice to be able to find ways for him to engage with it in a way that’s healthy and active. I’d like the fact that his screen time is Productive. – Stephanie
Are JAM courses safe?
I have been reluctant to let my children engage in online courses with commenting / liking features because of bullying and spam concerns. I feel that JAM is truly a safe and encouraging place for them to explore. – Carmen
My son got a lot out of the engineering course. But, I really liked the safe environment for him to share what he made and the positive slant that the staff at JAM made in their comments. –Hugo
Do kids like JAM courses?
My kids love JAM. They are engaged and learning. The moderators interact with and encourage the kids. The customer service is great. –Amanda
My son loves drawing, but sometimes gets frustrated of his skill level. JAM gives him step by step instructions that really make sense to him, and now he is powering through drawings! –Stephanie
My son has had a tough tough tough year and I see the life coming back into him when he does this course. –Janine
My son is thoroughly enjoying his classes! He chooses them over video games every day and is creating beautiful artwork! –Adrianne
My son is having so much fun with his course, ‘Invent Your Own Machines’. He loves the interactive nature of it, it’s very motivating to see other children his own age making and creating too. The tasks are great because they range from easy to more challenging, he feels he can succeed. He has loved what he’s made already, he’s only had a go at two tasks but he spent 6 hours on them! I think the course will therefore be excellent value for money too! –Sarah
It’s a great choice for self-directed, creative, motivated kids. At first I was surprised that there weren’t more instructions but my 5 yr old son was off and running after just a couple minutes of videos building each invention with much excitement. He didn’t feel like he was being “taught” he just got great ideas. Works great! – Bridget
This is the first program where my son has jumped in all on his own. He had his own machine in a day and posted it within a week. The assignments have a lot of flexibility, and researching other’s products gives him inspiration to come up with his own item. He has the freedom to work within his skill level and build on it. I like the controlled environment for posting videos. It gives him a chance to make videos, and I feel more comfortable with allowing him to post here as compared to YouTube. –Tina
A FANTASTIC addition to any home-schooled OR traditionally schooled child’s life. My kids have had so much fun they haven’t hardly even noticed that they have progressed SO much! – Jessie
As a home educating parent, it’s a big gig to navigate the education curriculum and so you’ve given a really amazing unstructured structure for a variety of topics that makes providing a create education in a fun way for my children. – Rebecca
Course is user friendly and helps fill in some of the gaps for my home schooled children. Well done. Friendly and honest customer service. –Holly
We signed up for a 14 day trial, but we soon realized we were here to stay. Our children are engaged in the activities and the staff makes the courses fun. They enjoy making the videos of their projects. They love interacting with the other students and we feel like it’s a safe place for them to do it. Jam is exactly what this homeschool family needed. –Lara
