Via: Serious Games Source - Dreamcatcher Interactive Expands Its Learn Series Of Educational Titles For The Nintendo DS
Games publisher Dreamcatcher Interactive has announced Learn Geography, an educational title for the Nintendo DS aimed at students between the first and fourth grades to be released on November 17, 2009.
Learn Geography will be the second title to be released as part of Dreamcatcher's Learn Series of educational titles for the Nintendo DS, following up on last year's Learn Math
Once they're ready to play, kids will start working through lessons as little green vampires, and they'll have the opportunity to progress through 10 different topics, learning new concepts, practicing them, and repeating lessons to ensure that they stick. They'll also be tasked with mastering brief quizzes that provide an incentive for practicing skills until they are perfect.
Two additional titles are scheduled for release later this year:
