My sisterâs kid is a genius. I watch him from a distance. I say âfrom a distanceâ because it seems heâs always sitting glued to the computer screen. However, I worry about all the time that he spends and if it is being channelled into something challenging.
This got me to thinking. Chances are, there are hundreds of kids in my nephewâs French Immersion school, also sitting at home with their eyes glued to monitors. Are they learning new and exciting things or are they instant messaging their friends?
I can see a solution. For the cost of perhaps 50 cents or a dollar per kid, all of the students in your childâs school (and in my nephewâs school) could be accessing online arcade games teaching English, French, Spanish, German and Italian. These games are terrific. They would be a valuable resource for the students of any school.
A subscription price of $399 per year allows all students and teachers of a school to have access, both at school and at home, for an entire year. Teachers even have access to an additional 3 sites with downloadable lessons and quizzes to use at school.
