Skoolbo is a free for teachers downloadable program for both Macs and PCs. There are also apps available for IOS and Android devices. Skoolbo is essentially a literacy and numeracy program designed for 3 – 10 year olds to practice their core literacy and numeracy skills. This is done through a 3D world where the progress through this world is determined by students successfully answering questions. The questions focus on the following areas:-
- Number Development
- Number Patterns
Each student is required to sit pre-tests on Reading and Numeracy to work out the difficulty level for the student, this is continually assessed and the difficulty adjusted when needed.
Update: Skoolbo now includes Science, Geography, Music, Art, Money, Stories and Languages resources. It also has new reward games and brain games.
