Skoolbo - register for free till end of September

Skoolbo is a new game based app which has been developed by the same person who created Mathletics - I used it at a school last week and the children were very engaged with it - at first I couldn't understand it until I realised that they had to listen for the instructions so might be good to use with earphones. The idea of the spiral curriculum intrigued me so I phoned the makers and found out it is tailor made for individual students and after an initial test set of questions creates games that challenge at the student's level. There is a Te Reo and Samoan version too which make it great for NZ schools.
