Wow, it's the first day of 2014! It's time for new beginnings. Is one of your goals, this year, to learn how to use technology in your class or therapy sessions? Well, if it is and playing memory games with your kiddos is an activity you use, then this is the post for you.
I know my kiddos love memory games. Memory can be played with all sorts of topics and subjects! Language, Math, Science...I think you understand-no need to keep listing topics. :) Memory games are fun and beneficial for children and adults.
1) improve brain power (at any age)
2) improve positive social interactions (with adults or other children)
3) improve problem solving, comprehension and reasoning skills
4) and of course, improves memory
Since memory games can be tailored to any age group, you can make variations of the game by using a low-tech models (cards) or high-tech models (computer programs, apps).
Today, I will be focusing on a 'high-tech' model. I'm sharing 2 video- tutorials that will teach you how to make a memory game using technology-PowerPoint. There is a third video-which you can search for on youtube. It's all there for you to view at any time. Enjoy making an interactive computer based memory game! Have fun!
