Educational games and apps provide a good outlet for students to Do and Learn while earning true self esteem. I've been producing interactive computer games for schools and organizations for more than a decade. The latest entries work as web apps across all platforms and devices, accessible for students in school and home. Most games can be customized with your content very cost effectively. Many are made WITH KIDS providing content and/or soundbites. Browse around for short descriptions. Roll over(or touch) an image to expand the description, then click on the links to play a sample.
