The Rottnest Island CDROM is different to many others: it has an uncluttered interface; is free from ranting sound loops; is as suited to girls as it is to boys; and is produced in Perth.
This CDROM uses a holistic approach to language learning. The narrative contains embedded word identification games. Children learn words within the context of the story. There is a context specific help that determines when the child needs assistance. A Control Panel allows you to set the CD to suit the ability level of the child.
There is also set of games that promote environmental sustainability. You can see how a crayfish behaves when caught.
