    I really agree with Henry Jenkins. In every aspect of our learning common sense is applied. I believe common sense and our own judgement within ourselves allow us to learn and make better judgements as we grow.

    I have always felt as a child growing up with the spectrum series playing manic minor and wondering how those tapes transferred that brilliant (at the time) game onto my screen. The one thing I can always say I am thankful for is the fact my mother (who probably did not know what I was getting out of it apart from the fun part) continued to buy me these machines.

    I think as far far as gaming goes, as a child it definately speeds up your reflexes which is both physical and well as mental and you dont have to be a programmer later on in life to benefit at all, it’s a way of thinking, mental state.

    I however did become a programmer (accidentally I will add – I really wanted to become a veterinarian). Anyway so a few years ago in May 2001 I was awarded 2 bafta awards for my involvement of an entertainment, educational project for Sesame street. I had so much fun and could see the enjoyment children were taking from the educational games so decided to set up http://www.wackywindows.com – Which was my definitive answer to doing something I love and focusing on children on a platform I believe is going to be a great source of learning in the future.

    I do agree with this part of “wackywindows’s post ” “I really agree with Henry Jenkins. In every aspect of our learning common sense is applied. I believe common sense and our own judgement within ourselves allow us to learn and make better judgements as we grow.”
