The nsquared education pack is live.

Today we're proud to announce the release of the nsquared education pack for Microsoft Surface.

The nsquared education pack for Microsoft Surface is the first of the nsquared educational series. It focuses on providing highly interactive learning experiences that are designed to enhance young students’ attention and retention rates. Game-based learning is acknowledged as an extremely effective teaching approach and most of the seven nsquared education pack activities utilise this method. While the activities are designed to enhance literacy and numeracy skills, students learn to manage themselves in collaborative and competitive environments when they participate.

Teachers who want to match the activities to their current curriculum content can easily customise the activities. Each education pack is supplied with the nsquared teacher tool that enables teachers to create and change content for the activities using their PCs.

The nsquared education pack is supported by a dedicated web site. “As of ourlaunch day today, there are already a number of free content packs ready for teachers to download so that they can easily change the content.” said Dr. Neil. Teachers or library administrators can find out more and download the available content packs from the web site.

This week Dr. Neil and the team on the ground in the UK are excited to be on the road taking Surface and the nsquared education pack to a number of schools in England and Wales. More updates will be provided as the week continues.
