The series “My first software” is addressed to girls and boys from 4 years old and upward who want to learn while playing. The idea is to provide a variety of entertaining educational games to do on the computer (but not only) which develop skills that will be needed in subsequent learning tasks.



The wizard Grey Raven thorough a spell has stolen the voice of the Indians of the Tribe of the Chatterboxes. You have to help Talking-Wolf find the 8 ingredients necessary to prepare the magic potion that will give back the voice to his friends! The CD-ROM is designed to develop linguistic and meta-phonologic abilities—it presents a variety of games involving sounds, syllables, words and images that are particularly helpful in introducing young children to the world of words and word production. In order to help Talking-Wolf to find the magic potion’s ingredients, children will have to pass various tests of increasing difficulty that require them to discriminate between initial and final syllables, develop hearing skills, indicate high and low frequency words, produce simple sentences to describe images, develop temporal-logic abilities and understand the different syntactic structures. Through all these activities, children will develop their linguistic and meta-phonologic abilities while playing.



The book introduces the principles of the VIDEO-PLAY method. The first part talks about the relation between play and learning in the digital era. The second part expands on the educational use of multimedia games. The third part comprises a guide to the use of the software and suggestions about how to use the resources in the family touching upon other dimensions of child development, like body language, affectivity and interrelatedness.
