Reading is fundamental -- but so is playing games. That’s why Tabula Digita has expanded its game-based learning platform with the release of DimensionL, a literacy-based, interactive video game for students in grades three through nine.

With almost 200 literacy skills embedded in curriculum packs for elementary, middle and high school students, the interactive DimensionL software introduces and reinforces such topics as language conventions, parts of speech, reading and writing processes, spelling, and vocabulary. Students encounter challenging curriculum delivered in a series of quick-paced, immersive missions that incorporate 3D graphics, sound, animation and storylines comparable to those in most popular commercial video games.
