Doin It With Kwaisi France: MyFinny
KTB Radio presents Doin it With Kwaisi France. Kwaisi sits with Alex Bush of MyFinny.
If you’re a parent who is tired of their child wasting time on devices, which in this day and age is almost everyone, there’s an app for that. MyFinny allows children’s screen time to be turned into learning moments through interruption of the device, which triggers a custom quiz. Parents set the rules by identifying unproductive apps and selecting time limits and content categories along with configuring rewards and penalties. Children play the games geared towards demonstrating knowledge and developing time management skills; they are rewarded with the ability to collect finny coins and badges.
Children learn math, science, current events and more. Parents empower their children through acquisitions in the coin economy. Real-time report cards provide quiz results, trends and device usage stats, which can help educators in analyzing performance. It’s the first free app that combines parental controls with education.
As a new parent and former Wall Streeter, Alex understands the value of education, efficiency and incentive. The fact that MyFinny doesn’t penalize children for phone usage, but instead makes it more educational, is fantastic. In the contemporary negotiation between technology and human interaction, everybody wins.
It’s clear that leaving finance and creating this opportunity was not a decision that Alex nor his family took lightly. The courage it takes to go into education, of all fields, cannot be acknowledged enough. I think it’s clear the love, protection and promotion of family is at the heart of the Finny story. We aren’t the only ones who have noticed this.
Innovation in the ed-tech arena, like the work Finny is doing, has the potential to make a positive impact on families. – Liza McFadden, President of the Barbara Bush Foundation
This is the perfect tool to engage with your child and improve mobile habits. – Professor Eric Curcio M.D., UCLA Pediatrics
