It has been a good year for TAG Learning. The educational software developer and distributor has won several BETT and educational resource awards this year. Although the company specialises in software and peripherals, it has a small but growing range of bookCD-Rom combos that mix instruction with demonstration. The latest title, Great Ideas for Email, will provide inspiration for seven to 12-year-olds who are bored with email.
It covers the basics of setting up email accounts, creating addresses, group email and attachments, and organising messages, before moving on to more creative ideas such as sending E-cards, music emails, games, puzzles and coded messages. The CD-Rom has several creative activities that will allow children to try the book's suggestions. And the website at www.greatideasfor.co.uk provides more ideas.
Great Ideas is available for Macs and PCs, and costs pound;12.99 from TAG Learning on 01474 357 350. It can also be ordered online from the new TAG shopping site at www.taglearning.comshop
