This is a part of the Counting backwards game. The student has to drag a stone to allow the boy to jump. In case the wrong stone is dragged, the boy looks disappointed and the software places the correct stone.
Initially response from our students has been positive, so we plan to go ahead and add more. Feedback from some students is always gathered before publishing more games of the same type. Also, to teach the same concept other games are added, just in case some students do not prefer a certain type of game. As usual, this game is also linked to the Learning Plan. So, if a teacher adds the concept of ‘counting backwards’ to a student’s Learning Plan, then the plan is updated as soon as the student plays this game.
One of the reasons for taking feedback and providing other games for a certain concept is to ensure that children with Special needs do not face any problems due to visual perception challenges or any other reason. In this video music has been added, but the actual game doesn’t have the music and audio is limited to game instructions and feedback.

Badges are given to children as they complete games and activities related to a topic in the EdQueries E-learning site. The badges are displayed in the user’s profile, on the dashboard and within the course. The main idea of the badges is to motivate the children.
The question we asked ourselves, when creating the badges, was whether children would understand the significance of the badges, especially if the children are very young.
An interesting answer was provided by a Special Educator. “Parents like motivation too. They would be proud of the child’s achievements.”
That rung true. Parents are proud of their child’s achievements and it does give great satisfaction to collect the badges.
Once the child starts realising the significance of a prize, a medal; he or she is proud of all the medals won in the past as well.
