I became involved in some of the games and found them very interesting. One that showed me how far education has come over the past, lets say 29 years. was the keyboard skills, http://www.doorwayonline.org.uk/texttype.html I found this not intimidating at all, as I remember learning to type all those years ago with a ‘bib’ over our keyboards and having to remember where the keys were and then having the teacher walking around the room making sure you got it right, wow, ICT has made learning to type fun, not scary or intimidating. There are so many positives of ICT use and the children today are lucky to have these resources on hand. Typing was never taken by males when I was at school, but my son he has it down pat, knows his keys and types very well.
