10 Free Educational Game Sites These free sites provide students an opportunity to learn in a fun, interactive environment. I searched out and visited a bunch of sites with free educational games and selected the ten I thought were most useful and appropriate to education. In addition to a brief overview of each site, I have also attempted to define the grade range that each site is applicable to. I made my own judgement for most sites since it often wasn’t indicated (feel free to weigh in if you think I’m off target on any of these). Most of the sites listed here are geared towards K-12 (with many leaning towards K-6 or so), but some do have fun games that will challenge the Higher Ed student and adults as well. Take one for a spin today! Funbrain (Grades K through 8): This popular site from Pearson Education features ‘Arcades’ specific to Math and Reading, along with the ‘Classic Funbrain’ games such as Math Baseball and Grammer Gorillas.

Apptivities The Top Five Reasons I love teaching with an iPad. Hi, This is an edited version of a post I did on my own blog last month, but I'd love to get some feedback on it. I got 200 views, and no comments. It has some strong opinions but all are views I can defend.

With Just One iPad, Teachers Improve Classroom Lessons Contact: Katie Neal,, (336) 758-6141 Newswise — Winston-Salem, NC, Jan. 4, 2012 - While K-12 schools around the country search for funding to provide iPads to every student, an education researcher in North Carolina has found that even a single iPad can make a huge difference in the classroom. The results of her experience with student teachers at Wake Forest University appear in the December/January issue of Learning & Leading With Technology, the magazine of the International Society for Technology in Education. “Because they’re truly part of the digital generation, our pre-service teachers and the K-12 students they teach have a natural aptitude for tablet devices,” said Kristin Redington Bennett, an Assistant Professor of Education at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, N.C.
