Free Educational Software

My friend Neil Hokanson had an interesting post on his blog about a suite of open source (which also means FREE) educational games for young children. The software is called Childsplay and is available from SourceForge.net. Neil explains that Childsplay has “several games in the software that test basic math and language arts skills along with other exercises that practice matching, listening, and memory skills. The activities help children learn fine motor skills as they navigate the computer keyboard and identify specific number and letter keys, mouse, and mouse pad movements.”

I encourage those of you with learners that are under 10 years old to take a look at Childsplay. Please share your review of the games in the Comments below.

  1. I sat this up on our home computer. Our kids are enjoying the games right this very moment. the design and development of these games certainly is not high end, but there are educational benefits. Considering that this is free software I give it my recomendation.

  2. I can’t wait to get to school and set this up on my computers. This will be great. I”ll let you know what my students say about the games.
