Master SY Junior has taken over the blog today.
I’ve been impressed to see him work through NAPLAN questions in Samsung’s free Skillsbuilder app.
As a parent I can see that being able to help him build his confidence before sitting for any official test can be a good thing.
In my son’s case it’s not necessarily that he doesn’t know the answer but that he’s not confident enough to back himself by hitting the “submit” button.
Check out his thoughts on this video interview I did with him.
His key points
I like when you turn it (the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 2014 Edition) on. It’s like a little blob (the way the screensaver dissolves to the wall paper).
I like doing my Skillsbuilder, which my mum uploaded for me. It’s going to help me do NAPLAN. It’s making my brain lock all these answers in.
NAPLAN is like Maths and English, I guess. They’re my favourite subjects so I might be fine with NAPLAN.
(If you don’t know the answer) there’s also a hint button that gives you an idea. If you still don’t know, you can just have a guess.
If it comes up with the red thing, it tells you the correct answer and says what it’s means and stuff about the answer if you don’t know it.
I normally just have a try and do my best.
I haven’t been using it (the S Pen – stylus) that much, I’ve just been using my fingers but it’s also good so I don’t get the screen dirty.
It’s like playing a game because you’ve got to go into it and do stuff … (it’s not like a game) because you don’t do stuff like build a city or something.

Why would the Samsung GALAXY Note 10.1 appeal to the kid/kids in your family?
