TopicMatch: the question and answer matching game where you choose the topic. Now with user-created phrases, any
language/knowledge that fits into matching phrases can be studied with Topicmatch. Additionally, user-created topics can
be stored with ID-tags in the cloud. Classrooms/learning groups of all kinds can now collaborate on, share, and explore
Choose a topic. Study the paired text phrases. Shuffle the phrases; then try to match them: Choose a number; read the phrase that appears; then try to find its match.
What would a simple enjoyable game that encourages contextual learning through exploration of a wide selection of topics look like? Wouldn't its user interface be shaped to minimize distractions and to maximize meaning?
Topicmatch is such a learning tool and it was designed by a teacher with these qualities in mind.
Topicmatch's comfortable user interface was specifically designed to focus the player's attention on the content of the various topics rather than mesmerizing graphics or ads. It functions entirely offline and can be played by single or multiple users to study while having fun. In addition, Topicmatch facilitates cognitive memory training.
The included 35 topics (nearly 500 distinct phrases, 1000s of vocabulary words) explore the history and interesting facts of diverse subjects such as: Astronomy, Basic English, Books, Carpentry Math, Dance, Electricity, Family, Food, Grammar, Greek Myths, Hawai'i, Health, Law, Music, Online Education, Permaculture, Software, Soil, Technology, Textiles, The Moon, Ukulele, Visual Art, Writing, and more.
Non-native (ESL) English students, native speakers interested in the topics, and people of all ages wanting to train their memory while having fun can learn with Topicmatch.
If a fun learning tool for exploring diverse topics through dialog has a place in your education, Topicmatch is worth checking out!
