Cbeebies, playing and learning: consultancy

Guided interaction is support for learning mediated by technologies and people. The hints we provide take the form of a brief suggestion for how caregivers can prepare their child for the CBeebies game, something they could do together while their child is playing, or a follow-up activity. The focus is on points that use parent-friendly language, are easy to understand and easy to implement. No additional resources are needed, other than items that are already in the home.
