I have had a few requests and inquires over the last few weeks about making or how to make apps for education. All of which i have answered as best i can. My journey into this came from a constant search for games to play in my classroom, which is why i have also lists of the ones i use on the site as well. I really struggled to find ones that I thought were suitable for my learners.
Following on from the great response from teachers in having these games in one easy bookmarked place I have made on for Magic or Silent E as well. These games are harder to find it appears so i hope this will be of use as well. I have played them all and as usual they are a mixed bag. I also have one of mine in App and online form and will put the usual links below it
Following on from the selection of rhyming games post a few weeks ago I have put together a list of short vowels and Phonic CVC online games for teachers to be able to easily access in lessons. There are three of mine on there, mainly and i hope not arrogantly but it seems there are a lot of older games out there that are starting to look very dated. I will let you judge that for yourselves.
Although we are not quite at the stage where teachers can click a switch and hologram versions of dinosaurs, or Earth can appear in the middle of the classroom just yet. ( one day maybe) We are at the stage where we can put them in the classroom through a screen. Virtual, Reality, Mixed Reality and Augmented Reality all hold exciting, but as yet unrealised, prospects for education.
