Tommy Teaches the Alphabet" is the first in a series of iPhone apps that take a novel approach to learning. Tommy's teaching approach is based on the idea that not two people learn the same way. Mindless repetition almost never produces the best results. And this is particularly true with kids. Tommy's teaching method was refined using a Genetic Algorithm (GA), which is a technique that allows software to find solutions to complex problems. Tommy is able to observe the student throughout the game and make small adjustments to the way the subject is being taught in order to maximize learning.

Additional apps are in the works to teach other subjects. Tommy's GA teaching method is also very applicable to adults. Plans are under way to create a series of apps for adults using this core technology.
