Reading as a video game
« on: January 12, 2013, 08:55:01 AM »

This is a game I found which litterally lets you play through levels of words, highlighting them as you go, and the words being famous poems or stories.

Have a go, its quite fun.

This.  Is.  Perfect.

I'm am seriously going to have to use this in my classroom.  I teach reading struggling high school juniors and seniors, and a game like this is right up our alley.  Thanks much!

Interesting concept. Pity you can't just drop your own text choices into the game.

I'm honestly not sure if I like trying to read the words while they're moving. Might be an eye strain after a while.

Well I think thats part of the challenge as well. IT helps to develop your reading skills. You go slow while your learning and then when you get a better reader you teach yourself speed reading with it.

And yeah, putting in text choices would be nice but I can say full well as a coder, the math and coding that would be needed to make that work would almost be hell.

Im glad that everyone likes it though.

Ill see if I can find other stuff that might help
