Review: Know Your World (Edware)
Just when you think a game can’t get any better, Luke from Edware has released the newest version of Know Your World, a program he has perfected over the last 5 years. Like Know Your Ireland and Know Your Europe, this game is a geography game that tests children’s knowledge of the countries of the world. There are several sections to Know Your World including a study section, where children can reference a myriad of information on every country of the world. There is a quiz section and an “Examine” section, which gives children the opportunity to be assessed on their knowledge. As well as all that, there are loads of puzzles and games!
The thing that hits you immediately upon opening Know Your World is the quality of the images. You could even use the program as a photo album – the pictures are crisp and beautiful! Navigation is as good as the other titles in the series so it’s very easy to get around.
Know Your World would be a very welcome addition to any geography classroom and would cover any study, theme or project on any country in the world! Children could spend time using the software to do research on a country. The maps can be used by teachers and pupils and the Interactive Tools are excellent.
At Anseo.net, we’re huge fans of the Know Your… series and it’s great to see yet another improvement to the software: a thoroughly deserved Top of the Class award for it!
