Make Choices with Switch Symbol

Choose and Tell Series

Choose and Tell programs are beautifully illustrated adventures that encourage children to make choices and create their own stories.

The simple framework guides them through an adventure, but the children's decisions make it all their own. They will giggle at the comic situations the nursery rhyme characters find themselves in ... and gasp when legendary heroes face fearsome monsters!

The Program
The programs are designed to engage and motivate the user. They are encouraged to respond to the unfolding story on-screen and to make decisions, using a combination of cause and effect and choice-making activities. It also helps the user to gain an understanding of sequences of events.

The activities can be adjusted to suit learners of different ages and abilities and to include those with special needs.

Accessibility
You can use a keyboard, mouse, 1 or 2 switches, touch monitor, interactive whiteboard or IntelliKeys.

Choose and Tell characters can be used in activities away from the computer, too. The images can be printed out and black and white versions are available for learners to color in.
