Key Features

Ginger Tiger is a well organised online switch games provider which separates its games into different categories. The categories are as follows:

Cause and Effect Switch Games

Cause & Effect Games Interface

Cause and Effect

Simple games which help learners understand the simple connection between cause and effect. The games are bright and exciting and have many different themes from Puzzle to Touch & Go and Musical Instruments.

There are demos available for each game section. From the Cause and Effect section, we suggest trying out People Puzzle and Box.

Basic Skills

As the name would suggest the basic skills section is about helping learners understand some basic concepts. These include colours, matching and odd one out. Once again the games are bright and vibrant with a mixture of cartoon and photo based options.

From the Basic Skills section, why not have a quick go on the demos of the Dress Up and Match games.

Math

The Math section of the website can be used by older learners who are looking to expand their numerical skills. The variety includes bright graphics once more such as animals and sports and there are maths games which involve adding and subtracting, memorising series of numbers and basic counting.

Two maths demos from the section that make counting and addition fun are Animals and Number Lines.

Language Arts

The language arts section is designed for more expression and creativity. There is the chance to practice basic spelling, enjoy Alphabet Flowers and learning letters. There is also the opportunity to play the My Story game where different items can be placed on a landscape and simple works of art can be created.

Speech and Language

Speech and language games are designed to encourage conversation, verbalisation and interaction. Games such as Sounds are based on listening skills and choosing a graphic based on what you hear.

There are a large number of games under each heading so there’s no possibility of getting bored. All of the games can be played with switches and some involve the need to utilise scanning and timing techniques too.

Limitations

Ginger Tiger is a paid subscription software suite. You can enjoy a maximum of 14 days free access to the full service and then you have to pay. The full service costs £30 per year for a single use license with a single logon or £186 per year for a site license, to be used in a school or similar environment with multiple logons.

The benefits of the paid versions outweigh the limitations as new games are made available every month and there is a high level of technical customer support.

Conclusion

Ginger Tiger is so far reaching that it offers something to suit the needs of almost every type of user. It has an inclusive atmosphere and invites users of all abilities and experiences to try out the games available.
