Childsplay

Of the Childsplay/CognitionPlay/Schoolsplay family of programs, Childsplay is the one oriented at home users but can also be used in kindergarten schools.
Python and PyGame based, it provides a framework for activities that are more 'game' like: they can have animation and move.
Childsplay has all the activities found in the old childsplay, version < 0.90.

Features

Childsplay provides several features for users and developers of activities:

  • memory activities that are fun to play and at the same time learn sounds, images, letters and numbers.
  • activities that train the child to use the mouse and keyboard.
  • pure game activities like puzzles, pong, pacman and billiards.
  • multilingual support, even right to left languages (via Pango).
  • solid data logging to monitor the children's progress; locally (SQLite) or over network (MySQL or any other db supported by SQLAlchemy).
  • set of OpenOffice reports to print this data (still in development state).
  • object oriented framework for easy activity development in Python/PyGame.
  • good support by the developers and translators.
