Pora Ora : Online 3D Educational Game for Children

Pora Ora : Online 3D Educational Game for Children | ICTmagic | Scoop.it

This is a MUST TRY site. It's not often that I'm amazed by an educational resource, but I am with this one.

 

Pora Ora is a stunning educational virtual world for Primary school aged students. Play truely fun educational games which practise skills in English, maths and many other subjects. The graphics and useably is superb.

 

Online safety is at the heart of this site. The parental admin account can set the student's account to free chat with everyone to completely locked down where they have the world to themselves and everything in between. The site has a language filter and users can report any incidents of trouble. Also, the first task requires the user to complete an online safety task.

 

The site is free with a few premium features coming out later. You have got to try this one!

UKEdchat

UKEdchat | ICTmagic | Scoop.it
When teachers are faced with 30 (or more) pupils who offer such wide a range of abilities in the plethora of subjects that are to be taught, ensuring that all the individuals in the classroom can access the learning on offer. This is where differentiation comes to play, with planning resources, content and activities within each lesson being one of the vast challenges for primary colleagues – planning is needed for pupils from one end of the ability spectrum to the other.

Virtual Assistants have been with us for a while and many of us have had experiences similar to the dialogue above. However, they are getting better and becoming more of an assistant than a hindrance. Apple, Google, Microsoft and Amazon all have voice activated assistance. I’ve used them all at different times for my personal use, especially Google Now, but Amazon’s Alexa assistant is the only one I’ve used in the classroom via an Amazon echo. Many of the following ideas can be done on any of the above assistants, but I will focus on Amazon’s Alexa.
