ICT - Review

18th November 2011 at 00:00

Recently, the bright colours and attractive message from the website Zondle caught my eye: "FREE - and always will be!" After all, with increasingly stretched budgets, promises like this are an attractive proposition. But are they a true economy?

How does it work?

It's simple to sign up to Zondle and there's an option to set up a class to monitor pupil progress. Using the search tool, find a stack of prepared learning topics, which generate a whole series of games. After trying a few subjects, correct answers earn opportunities to play a game, build a car or see a Zondle character being bashed into oblivion with a mallet .

What else?

Attractively presented, the games can be personalised using your own set of questions to create a new topic. They could be used in class, as homework activities or for revision. The learning potential of Zondle is clear. www.zondle.com



Knock, knock, creative calling!
