Yahoo Groups OWNED BY GAMES FOR LEARNING
GamesForLearning and Games4Learning
GamesForLearning and Games4Learning are two Yahoo groups that were created for parents who wish to use games as part of the education of their children. Games are a fun-filled way to introduce skills, drill material until mastered, review lessons, or test ability. The goal of these lists are to share ideas for creating games individualized to the needs, interests, and abilities of each child. Questions, ideas, and resources of materials will be welcome. Homeschooling parents will greatly benefit from the use of games as part of their program. Also parents that choose to have their children enrolled in school will find games an extremely useful tool for drill or reviewing of lessons. Preschool parents will also love games as an enjoyable, non-pressure approach to instructing young children. Teachers and day care workers are also welcome as games are so useful in the classroom as well.
GamesForLearning began in September 1998 and currently has over 3,000 members. This was our original group.
In May 2004 because of a problem with Yahoo, Games4Learning began. We currently have over 1,400 members. Problems were later resolved and BOTH groups are currently up and running.
