PLAYFUL LEARNING

Play, instruction, daily activities and our life experiences make up the four critical ways in which we learn.

Our team is passionate about education and the value of games in learning & the classroom. Education & learning does not always have to be boring & serious. And games too are not just entertainment or lacking in purpose!

In today’s world, all information is available on the click of a mouse.

When you want to know if a game is appropriate for your classroom, you shouldn’t just rely on someone telling you it’s great, whether that someone is us or even your colleague.

As you play, you will experience what students will experience and learn how to support them when they play. You’ll develop an understanding of what can be learned from this game, whether it’s content, thinking skills, or both.
