GCompris

Is bailiúchán aipeanna d'ardchaighdeán é GCompris agus tá líon mór gníomhaíochtaí ann do pháistí atá idir dhá bhliain agus deich mbliana d'aois.

Some of the activities are game orientated, but nonetheless still educational.

Here is the list of activity categories with some examples:

  • computer discovery: keyboard, mouse, touchscreen ...
  • reading: letters, words, reading practice, typing text ...
  • arithmetic: numbers, operations, table memory, enumeration, double entry table ...
  • science: the canal lock, the water cycle, renewable energy ...
  • geography: countries, regions, culture ...
  • games: chess, memory, align 4, hangman, tic-tac-toe ...
  • other: colors, shapes, Braille, learn to tell time ...

Currently GCompris offers more than 100 activities, and more are being developed. GCompris is free software, it means that you can adapt it to your own needs, improve it, and most importantly share it with children everywhere.

The GCompris project is hosted and developed by the KDE community.

Release GCompris 1.0
2020-11-19

Hi,
To celebrate the 20 years of GCompris, we are pleased to announce the release of GCompris version 1.0.

This new version contains a new major feature: the addition of the Activity Settings menu with Dataset selection for more than 50 activities, allowing to choose more specifically what can be learned on the activities.

We also added 4 new activities:

  • The long awaited Analog Electricity activity which allows us to draw circuits and run their simulation.
  • Learn digits and two subactivities to learn additions and subtractions. The aim is to teach these concepts to younger children, with easy computations.
  • Baby keyboard where, when a character is typed on the keyboard, we display it on the screen and play the corresponding voice if it exists.
  • Gravity, which replaces the old Intro Gravity, explains better the concept and is more realistic.

  • You can find packages of this new version for GNU/Linux, Windows, MacOS and Raspberry Pi on the download page. This update will also be available soon in the Android Play store, the F-Droid repository and the Windows store. Note that the MacOS package is not notarized.

    You can check on this page the voices status in your language: https://gcompris.net/voicestats/. You can help us by providing a nice recording of your voice for all the missing entries in your native language.

    On the translation side, we have 22 languages fully supported: Basque, Breton, British English, Catalan, Catalan (Valencian), Chinese Traditional, Dutch, French, Greek, Hebrew, Hungarian, Indonesian, Italian, Malayalam, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian.

    We also have 4 languages partially supported: Belarusian (85%), Brazilian Portuguese (92%), German (89%), Lithuanian (84%).

    As said in the previous news, we decided to only ship translations that are at least 80% completed to let the children have a better experience and not half translated software. Unfortunately, we had to drop the translation for: Estonian, Finnish, Irish Gaelic, Scottish Gaelic, Galician, Hindi, Macedonian, Norwegian Nynorsk, Russian, Slovak and Chinese Simplified.

    If your language is in the partially supported list, or is no more or not yet supported at all, and you want to help, please contact us (support@gcompris.net) and we will give you instructions to get started translating.

    Another way to help is to write some posts in your community about GCompris, and don't hesitate to give us some feedback.


    Thank you all,
    Timothée & Johnny
