Today’s Eio post is on educational software.

Educational Software and Interactive Learning

Educational software is any type of program or game that teach the user a concrete skill or piece of information. It can teach the user a wide array of knowledge, anywhere from computer-related activities such as typing, to higher education subjects like chemistry, or even to secondary skills such as learning another language.

This type of software falls under the umbrella of interactive learning, which is a method of acquiring information through hands on, interactive means. Computers and other tangible equipment is a common means of how interactive learning is employed in schools and other learning environments.

Eio carries interactive educational software for both teachers and students. Teachers edition versions of this software holds both answer keys to interactive tests, and various methods for how to teach and/or communicate the lesson plans. It also has various tips and skills to think about when presenting the information.
