Who said education had to be boring? Games make learning fun, keep kids motivated and engaged. And best of all - it doesn't need to cost a thing!
Children best learn through real life and hands-on experiences. These experiences provide opportunities for children to develop problem solving skills and cognitive strategies which will provide them with the tools they need to learn, develop and thrive in today's technological world.
Technology provides opportunities for children to experience these situations outside the four walls of the classroom. It opens up opportunities for new experiences which would not be possible otherwise. It also adds the element of fun to learning experiences through the availability of games and activities which motivate and engage the learner.
There are so many online educational games and apps on the internet at the moment. Through this website I hope to be able to provide a central place when I can share what I have discovered so far - including links, reviews and news updates. You can also link to my twitter feed and delicious bookmarks to keep updated on any new discoveries. You can also add your own to this ever-growing list by sending me link details through the contact form on the 'About Me' page.
NB: this website is a work in progress - new apps / games are being added all the time so be sure to check back from time to time
