Funbrain, a free website designed for elementary school children, offers educational games, online books such as the Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and comics that develop skills in math, reading and literacy. For example, the “Mad Libs” games are designed to help children learn about nouns, verbs and adjectives by choosing one of the many words that are flying around the screen. Thus, this approach to learning has the ability to teach them new skills while making it fun for them in the process. Since I see myself as a technophile, I would love to integrate technology in my future classrooms. Therefore, I would use Funbrain at the end of unit or lesson as a tool to help students build on what they have learned in class and also to acquire new skills in reading, math, and problem solving. In addition, the website can also be used to introduce young students to the Internet and teach them how to manipulate the mouse and keyboard. As a result, this develops their computer literacy.
