|Educational Fun with the Beeb||
Hi. I'm Jo. I'm a child of the eighties who grew up with a BBC model B computer. (Beeb) (For anyone who doesn't know what I'm talking about, have a look at the Beeb History page) I spent many hours entertaining myself with games like Chuckie Egg, Elite, Mr Ee and Repton, among many others. I also spent as much time playing educational games as well as the more standard, just for fun games.
The Beeb became obsolete many years ago (see Beeb history) but the technology has been kept alive by the fans (see related sites) and the games can be played using an emulator (a program that convinces your modern PC that it is fact an 80's Beeb.) For more details see Playing the games on the PC: Emulators
I enjoyed the educational games as much as all the rest, so I would like to share them with everyone, so they can have fun on their computer and teach their kids the fundamentals of reading, maths and adventure game play. Therefore, this site is aimed at parents who want to teach their children in a fun, and interesting way as this is a wonderful resource for doing just that.
I am assuming that you have very little computer knowledge - everything is (as best i can) explained very simply, so apologies to those who already know what they are doing.
Have fun and enjoy the site. ~Jo
