E-Learning Games for Kids

E-Learning Games for Kids #59: Challenge | Recap

Games. They’re fun to play and even more fun to design. In a previous e-learning challenge, we saw some really creative games designed around topics for all ages.

This week we’re going to look at learning games for kids. Here are a few examples shared in the community:

Math Games

Flashcards

Articulate Super Hero Paul Alders recently shared  a free math game template. Using a flashcards design, the learner progresses through the cards by correctly answering basic math problems.

Hi Alexander! I'm so glad you liked it and I appreciate your feedback! I actually talk about why I didn't include the equivalent of an on-screen calculator in my blog post. At an earlier level of learning it would make sense to reinforce the idea that if you're spending something then you'll be left with less money in your pocket, but in this case the challenge is closer to what you'd face in real life: You have this much money - the yummy items you want cost this much - how much can you buy?

Nothing fancy in this one, just a lot of customized feeback for the questions. The kids split into several teams to answer the questions, but it could also be done individually. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/122411650/Winter%20Trivia%202012%20output/sto... Expand
