Game-Based Learning Flashbacks

I don’t remember a time growing up when I didn’t have a computer in my house. I have flashbacks of being 4 – 5 years old and even earlier playing computer games. My parents realized very early on the influence digital game-based learning could have and as such we played a variety of different educational computer games.

There are three educational games that I remember playing constantly, more specifically I can remember their names! The first being Reader Rabbit (the first edition) which taught reading and spelling;

Treasure Mountain which taught reading, math and logic skills;

And finally, thanks to “Mario Teaches Typing” I have great typing skills
today. 🙂
