Graphogame is a child-friendly computer game that helps children to learn the basic letters and their sounds. Through a series of levels, gradually, the child is able to construct these letters into small words and then larger words. Importantly, the game incorporates a dynamic element in that it also adapts to the child’s own level of ability and sets further levels in accordance with this ability. This prevents frustration in the context of learning while, at the same time, enjoyable positive feedback sustains the child’s interest in playing for sufficient time for learning to be established.
Graphogame was originally designed in Finland to help children learn letter- sound correspondences. The EU funded a large-scale cross-linguistic investigation of Graphogame in Finland, Switzerland, Holland and Britain.
