Gameschooling is the process of using games to teach. Simple enough, right? Many of the gameschoolers I know, from parents who teach at home to teachers who utilize games in the classroom, say that it engages students much better than many traditional teaching methods and helps them retain information longer. There are so many cool games developed for gameschooling that it's no wonder that it's gaining popularity.
If you have or know a tween, you know what a difficult period it is for him or her. Some days, the tween may feel very grown up and “over” things that they consider “baby stuff,” and other days, they may just want to snuggle with a stuffed animal or still play pretend. It’s a growth period, to say the least, but it can be difficult to find good games for tweens that will work on most days of the week!
