Calling all families with students who love gaming! If you find yourself having to limit game time to fit in schoolwork, you might just be interested to know that there is a way to compromise and have the best of both worlds. EdAlive has two online programs to blend the world of online gaming with the world of learning. Typing Tournament Online and Maths Invaders Online allow students to feel like they are simply playing a game even though they are truly learning.
Typing Tournament Online
Typing Tournament Online is a program for those aged six and up to learn typing skills. Begin by learning the home row, and work your way toward mastery. With a medieval theme, users are encouraged to participate in such activities as defending the castle from invading words and extinguishing fires set by a dragon. Students progress through lessons, games and drills to increase and eventually master their skills.
Parents will find that Typing Tournament Online is compatible with any device. Since it is online, students can have access 24/7. There are also numerous progress reports that can be printed.
Maths Invaders Online
Maths Invaders Online allows students to practice math skills while playing fun games. This program is recommended for those between the ages of 5 and 15 plus and covers a wide range of math concepts. With a space theme, users may find themselves blasting space ships while practicing math facts. There is also a worksheet generator for those that desire some additional pencil paper practice.
Maths Invaders Online works to improve instant recall and mental math. With lots of practice play and instant rewards, students are motivated to keep working toward success.
