A gaming platform that connects learning about food with other subjects
Cookery Kids is a fun, educational gaming platform about food that can be used at school and in the home. The games link food to traditional subjects such as history and geography and allow children to develop their cooking and gaming skills while studying. The Cookery Kids games use ingredients and recipes as the basis to link to other subjects for learning.
A task-observation system in the Cookery Kids platform notes the progress of the children by analysing their skills within the different games. The games shape to the abilities of the children in order to provide an appropriate learning experience, while teachers can influence the stages in which the children play and learn about food and the other subjects.
