Educational Games


Hands Free Computing has developed a series of educational games to support young people with a range of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

HolidayLand

HolidayLand is a series of games designed for facilitating the reading acquisition of young children. With its game-based design, this application particularly targets dyslexics who find it hard to remain motivated for engaging in reading activities.

The approach is based on the virtualization of learning using gamification and artificial intelligence. Compared to traditional methods of learning, this gamification of reading increases children’s motivation to the learning process.

These intelligent games will automatically adapt their challenges to the actual abilities of each learner using an in-built artificial intelligence algorithm.

The purpose of all of the games is to make learning as fun as possible and at the same time increase your reading ability.

HolidayLand includes 4 games, Halloween, Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving.

Halloween

Is a vocabulary game using closed questions and the learner has to find the correct words that completes the sentences.

Christmas

Christmas works with advanced speech recognition.  In this game the learner responds to the words as quickly as possible by saying them out loud to determine how quickly and accurately they can read.

Easter

Easter, is a reading fluency game, in which the learner has to find Easter eggs.  Each egg opens up a speed reading challenge followed up by a comprehension question.

Thanksgiving

The last game is called ‘Thanksgiving’, in which the learner is asked to recognize which word was spoken by the game by clicking on the correct word among a set of alternatives displayed on the screen.

“This tool can be enjoyed and benefit any child with its appealing graphics, fun theme-based games and educational content.  It goes a step further though, taking account of the different ways in which children with special needs or conditions learn.   For example, the games are short, so ideal for a limited concentration span.   They also encourage self-driven motivation and learning leading to independence, which is so often forgotten when a personal challenge is involved. “
