We recently discovered a useful website that features more than 272 educational games that are available online called Spree Games.
The games we tested out were all free to play online, and can be browsed by subject covering everything from Foreign Language (although nothing for learning Chinese as far as we can tell) to English, Science, Math, and much more.
The site is geared towards K-12 students, and also allows you to view games by age level and create lists of games by logging in and saving customized preferences.

A Connecticut school will soon offer Mandarin Chinese for kids to learn if the town’s school board agrees to a recommendation from the school superintendent, The Cheshire Citizen reports.
Part of the reason for the suggestion is the recent trend for schools to start offering Chinese classes for kids.
“Assistant School Superintendent Scott Detrick said he’s seen more and more school districts offering Chinese in the state and nationwide,” the article from The Cheshire Citizen said.

Many people have asked me why I decided to create Chinese Fridge — where the idea of a Chinese game for kids came from, how I created the app and what I hope to accomplish from it. The answer to all of these questions lies in my personal educational experience throughout my childhood and my desire to improve access to education for future generations.

Important note: We’ve learned that Adobe actually didn’t intend for everyone to download CS2 free of charge, but rather they decommissioned the activation server that checks the software license, but still wanted to give existing customers a way to reinstall their software if needed. Therefore technically this software is only intended for customers who purchased CS2 in the past.
We wanted to give a quick heads up to educators and developers that Adobe has officially made Creative Suite 2 free to download via Adobe’s website.
