Grandparentgames is a tool created by Roger Schank that offers a wide range of activities for grandparents to interact with their grandchildren through online games while being able to talk and see each other.
This resource has not yet been translated into Spanish, but once it is installed on the computer, grandparents and grandchildren can speak in their native language and see each other, while the grandfather or grandmother guides the child through the different games.
The system has games to learn letters, teach children to read through animated stories, mathematical games, virtual visits to museums, zoos; and a list that keeps growing.
The objective of this Schank initiative is to facilitate communication and contact between grandparents and grandchildren regardless of where each of them is, using activities that capture the attention of children and captivate them thanks to the reinforcement of the voice. of his grandfather.
To use this resource it is only necessary that children and adults have a web camera, microphone and a computer, although recently the possibility of interacting with the grandchild using the iPhone or iPod Touch has been added.
It is an initiative that will surely create digital ties between grandparents and grandchildren more in line with the technological concerns of the little ones.
