Computing + Storytelling —> Teaching + Learning

Computer-based interactive fiction gives teachers and students fresh and exciting ways to improve their thinking and reading, and to have lots of fun along the way. I hope that this site will encourage teachers and kids to use this remarkable, but largely ignored, resource. Please feel free to contact me (bdesilet@yahoo.com), if I can be of any further help.

On this site, you’ll find two big sections.  The first section is called Fun and Learning With Interactive Fiction.  It’s mainly for kids aged ten to fifteen, but everyone is welcome.

The second section, Teaching With Interactive Fiction, is mostly for educators, but everyone is welcome here, too.

You’ll probably find that the easiest ways to navigate the sight are to use the dropdown menus that appear near the top of this page or to follow the site map.
