Widget Workshop is one of the best programs we've seen, both in terms of interactivity and in its focus on stimulating thinking, rather than rote memorization and drills.
World Village (Gamer's Zone) (2005)
Overall, this is a very good educational program. It is one someone can have fun with and learn at the same time. It is rated by Maxis for ages 8 and above. I feel that is a little too young. Some of the concepts I had trouble remembering (boolean algebra, and/or gates, etc.) I feel are a little too much for the average child to comprehend at that age. There is also a heavy emphasis on following the book to gain the initial concepts. For a product that is released on a CD Rom, I think a more intuitive on-line tutorial would be more appropriate. As far as the game itself, I again expected more from a CD Rom product. Some background music, and voices throughout the game would greatly improve the multimedia look and feel of the program.
