Proves that if you make education fun kids love to play the games and we have “learning in Disguise”.
Would be ideal if the video games developers wrote some educational video games with real street cred. This would allow them to be played with parents and friends on the latest games consoles and even MP3 players and induce the practice function that is essential to learning.
i found lots of cool educational sites where you answer fun trivia questions and you also donate to charities. like http://www.freerice.com i think its a famous one and a cool one i saw today http://www.rescuethemarket.com
I Remember I had this educational game for the Super Nintendo called ‘Letters with mario’ or ‘Fun with mario’ or something. Entire purpose of the game was educational and I ended up writing an essay about it for class, haha. Goes to show, there are educational games out there.
Nice list! Thanks!
Thanks for the links!
Fun with letters was awesome. It was actually a decent game. I played it when i was like 14, so I just romped all the puzzles and questions that were meant for kids lol.
Interesting list , even though I agree only with a small part of it .
Myabe it’s because I’m more centered on RPG and strategy ..
Good review. I like educational games because they are more easier and effective than education process
Thanks for your research. I am always looking for sites like these.
Games are useful for struggling students, instead of a tutor, enjoy some family time or hire a babysitter.
