Manga High uses game-based learning to help students learn core Mathmatics skills.
Many practitioners do not think game-based learning is the best method
for instruction however many of those same practitioners realise it can
be a highly effective method for supplementing the learning process and
increasing motivation for some students.
Mangahigh's maths games are designed with maths at the core! They also work well on an interactive whiteboard.
scientific maths games engage students and keep them on-task by
providing an irresistible sense of achievement and a compulsion to progress.
I'm an eLearning Adviser specializing in stimulating and supporting innovation in learning via eBooks, eMagazines, blogs (including audio versions), online TV, interactive resources, forums, workshops, conferences and face2face consultations. Evaluating and becoming familiar with sustainable and new technologies allows me to respond to the needs of learning providers from a position of experience rather than 'hearsay'. Supported learning providers, in the northwest of England (UK), can contact me for FREE consultations. Based at Lancaster University I work for the JISC Regional Support Centre - Northwest.
