What is EDArcade?
EDArcade is a game based learning and gamification platform designed to support the educational needs of primary school children and SEN students of all ages. Our library features 100+ games covering core subjects such as Maths, English and Science as tough-to-teach topics, all built around the National Curriculum to support KS1 & KS2, our virtual ‘Sims’ style world EDVille and short, animated PSHE videos.
We currently support 23 different languages, including Makaton, to provide ESOL/EAL students with the support they deserve and of course, we understand that each child learns in their own way, which is why all of our game instructions are available in visual and audio formats, dyslexia fonts available.
Our Core Beliefs
- Connecting with students through game-based learning, an environment they are familiar with
- Portraying memorable characters and games, allowing students to remember and relate their learning to visualise and kinetic cues.
- Granting independence, confidence and mental wellbeing to students through independent game-based learning.
- Focusing on tough-to-teach and politically relevant topics as well as maintaining core subjects.
- Listening to the need of both students and teachers alike.
Here is all the content, games and resources available:.
EDVille is our online virtual world where children can learn and grow as they develop both their academic and important life skills such as:
- Road Safety & how to cross a road
- The importance of Recycling
- Why water can be dangerous
- The dangers of electricity
- How too manage money - Make sure you don't run out!
- Responsibility of looking after animals
- Learn new languages
We also have a range of short animated videos scattered around EDVille that explain tough-to-teach topics in a way that children are familiar comfortable with, such as disability and healthy lifestyle. An example of these can be found here.
All of our 120+ mini-games are placed within an object in EDVille for a child to find... the more games the child plays, the more badges they can unlock. Badges unlock different items within the game such as characters, vehicles, plants and animals so it means that the world is super personalised to them!

The Bradley Lowery Foundation
The Bradley Lowery Foundation was established in August 2017 after six-year-old Bradley Lowery lost his fight to Stage 4 High-Risk Neuroblastoma.
This is a highly aggressive and rare form of childhood cancer. His mum, Gemma, started a fundraising campaign to get Bradley treatment in the USA which was not available in the UK.The campaign raised £1.3 million and provided the funding base for the charity. Bradley Lowery Foundation will receive £1 for every EDArcade subscription. Use the code BRADLEY2021 when you order here.
