Recommended Usage Time

Based on the results of our efficacy studies, we recommend that students use ABCmouse for 45 to 60 minutes per week. We recommend multiple shorter sessions rather than one 45-minute session.

Number of Devices

The number of devices in your classrooms will often influence teachers can use Age of Learning products in the class. Some apps require individual students to log in. That way, any progress made is associated with the student. That makes sure the data you see in the Admin Portal is specific to that student. However, our efficacy studies found that usage affects growth regardless of the number of devices as well as whether students are learning individually, in small groups, or as a whole class.

We recommend one set of headphones per device.

Voiced instruction and scaffolding are essential to many Age of Learning products. This will help to minimize distraction and to ensure that each student is hearing the instructions.

Devices and Internet Connectivity

Some Age of Learning products are available in a web browser and a stand-alone mobile app. Other products are mobile-app only. Some apps are accessible without an Internet connection; others are not.

It’s important to make sure you have the devices and connectivity you need for student access.
