From their website:
“Pora Ora is a FREE 3D virtual world designed to make learning fun. Packed with engaging games and quests spanning literacy, maths, geography and problem solving, your pupils will be self-motivated to progress in this exciting and safe online environment. The education content may not seem obvious to you at first glance because it is embedded in games and quests, but you can rest assured that your pupils are learning while playing, often unknown to themselves! Content is intelligently adjusted to challenge each and every child and you can keep abreast of their academic progress with detailed reports outlining strengths and weaknesses.”
