## Kahn Academy

I have to take my hat off to Sal Kahn for a truly immense resource. What he has achieved with the Kahn Academy is nothing short of incredible.

He’s single handedly generated 1000+ instructional videos covering subjects including:

- Economics
- Finance
- Chemistry
- Arithmetic
- Pre-algebra
- Algebra
- Geometry
- Biology
- Trigonometry
- Precalculus
- Statistics
- Probability
- Calculus
- Differential Equations
- History
- Linear Algebra
- Physics

What a wealth of information. This has to be place in the category alongside Academic Earth and Udemy.

## Flags

With this game, Flags, you have to identify the country represented by the displayed flag from a list of five countries.

## Electric Box – logic game

The little grey cells certainly have to work to figure out the logic needed to solve the problems that this rather interesting little game, Electric Box, throws up at you. It demonstrates to children the need with some problems to resolve one solution before working on the next element of the string of problems to develop the entire solution. Fun graphics make the appearance of the game engaging and appealing.

When all the levels have been completed, there is a further dimension to the game, you can turn your talents to creating levels yourself for others to solve. This engages a different thought process, which is good.

There are a couple of other ‘level packs’ of user-generated levels to try your hand at as well.

## LabTV – Science and Engineering Videos

LabTV online by the National Defense Education Program (NDEP) has some interesting videos about science and engineering for older kids. There are over 50 videos from two seasons of webisodes, helping to capture kids’ imaginations and instill an interest in engineering.

## Gamequarium

The Gamequarium is a site that *“swims with learning fun”*. Drill down the categories to find LOTS of resources for children to use for learning, either independently or supported. I can see myself returning to this site again and again.

## Alphabet Rain typing training

Alphabet Rain is an online typing training game that could appeal to children as it’s easy to understand.
