Computer Software, Popnoggin, Is Giving Parents a Way to Win the Battle Over Computer Time, and Help Kids Learn

WOODINVILLE, WA--(Marketwire - April 27, 2010) -  Popspring LLC is announcing availability of Popnoggin®, a new software program for Windows PCs that solves the problem of kids wasting too much time on computer games, web sites and other addictive activities. It does so by adding an educational experience to any computer program. Kids "pay-to-play" their games by learning and practicing facts and skills.

"Now you can turn even the most vapid Web surfing into an educational experience with Popnoggin," says CNET.com. "Popnoggin is a fun way to put some intellectual stimulation back into computer time."

The new program, in development for two years, was inspired by its creator's own kids. Popspring LLC's founder, Steve Falcon, says, "I faced the problem that many parents do. My kids can play forever on the computer if we let them. We thought, why not use some of that time to teach them something that will help them in school?"

Popnoggin's premise is simple. When kids are working, the program leaves them alone. But when they are playing a computer game, chatting or surfing, Popnoggin will periodically interrupt to ask questions. Kids need to answer correctly to continue playing.

"We learned quickly that children will easily tolerate these interruptions. After a while, many hardly notice them anymore," says Falcon. "My own son has answered over 300,000 times. That's a staggering number, and he's quite proud of what he's learned from it."

Popnoggin has thousands of questions, including math facts, vocabulary, geography and more, and is designed for kids of all ages.
