Technology in Transit is a monthly event organized by Educational Technology Support (ETS) office for students in the Faculty of Education to showcase their learning technologies. The purpose of this one-hour session is to raise awareness of different technologies and to show how to incorporate them into classrooms.
This month, Sagar Sandhu, a teacher candidate in the TELL-3C cohort demonstrated how games help children to develop memory capacity, strategic thinking, and problem-solving skills.
The web game that he introduced is called “Short a Cat Food” from http://www.education.com/game/short-a-cat-food/. In this game, Roly the cat loves eating cat food. Players need to feed him by completing solving puzzles and finding letters to form a correct answer. This game aims to promote phonemic awareness by helping children from kindergarten to grade 2 to learn the sound of consonant letters, letter combination and word parts.
More information is available on the session handout.
