Abstract

The original concept was to create a 'simulation' which would provide trainee teachers, specializing in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) with the opportunity to explore a primary school environment.

To this end, we have developed Allsorts Primary - the prototype of a simulated interactive environment, representing a typical primary school
