The question is, are all those educational software really educate the kids?...I think we should choose the softwares that are able to make the kids think and make analysis.some of the games are just for fun and not really up to the standard especially topics on science and technology

hi myfisol...u got a point here..

yes, as a parents and even a teachers we should choose carefully what we intend to give to the kids..not only educational softwares but cd n dvd's for a movies and even a game's software like psp...

analitical thinking is very crucial nowadays bcos kids tend not to think nowadays...even for exams they just memorise...

my suggestion is..somebody in educational department, parents and teachers should be more sensitive when they selecting softwares for kids in school...

thanks for the comment...
