Jetpack Learning has collaborated with a First Nation School in British Columbia, Canada, to create seven games in the Secwepemc language.
Online games can provide a fun and educational way to teach Language concepts, both preparing students for a contemporary use of computer technology and helping them develop critical thinking and logical reasoning skills that can be applied to other subjects.
This is a fun and engaging way for both youth AND adults to learn language concepts.
