Education


Our award winning online interactive games are constructed around sound pedagodical principles and have been adapted, trialled and used as a context for learning and social interaction with great success within international education sectors. 


Many schools utilise the game as an extra curricular event in after school clubs. This has proved beneficial for disengaged, disadvantaged and pupils who require additional support needs. Examples of the work carried out in the clubs can be found below in the Spy Quest Blog.


We are currently working with Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) on having the games endorsed as a suitable learning resourse for children from 3 years old to adults.


A White Paper written by Ollie Bray,  Senior Policy Advisor & Consultant for Scottish Government & National Adviser for Emerging Technologies in Learning on the suitability of Super Spy Camp and Spy Quest in UK Education is available on request. It outlines the sound pedagodical principles and core skills on which the game is built on.
