    New Frog & Fly Software

    SKU# NewFrogAndFlySoftware

    Frog and Fly contains four switch training activities teach basic cause and effect, step scanning, linear scanning, and reaction time. Only 1 Left



    Simple, fun and inexpensive single-switch software

    Based on the classic Apple II game from the early days of personal computing, New Frog and Fly is one of those programs that just keeps getting better. One of Simtech`s all-time best sellers, New Frog and Fly features bright colour graphics with delightful animation and sometimes hilarious sound effects (I bet you didn`t know that frogs could burp). Four switch training activities help teach cause-and-effect, two switch step scanning, auto-scanning and reaction time. A wonderfully entertaining and effective switch training program.

    • Feed the frog
      This cause-and-effect activity shows the switch user how each switch press results in the frog catching the fly. Hit the switch and feed the frog. He never misses.
    • Trap the Fly 1 and 2
      These two activities help teach linear scanning. First with no timing factor. One switch moves the highlight and the second activates the frog. Great for bridging the gap between cause-and-effect and scanning. And, second, a single switch auto scan activity featuring a scan delay ranging from 1/10th of a second to as many seconds as you wish.
    • Frog and Fly
      You "old timers" may remember this old Apple IIe switch activity. Wait until the fly appears onscreen before pressing the switch. Each fly that`s caught causes the next fly to move faster. Each missed fly causes the next fly to move slower. Great for training reaction time.

    New Frog and Fly settings
    Review the current scanning speed. Set a new scanning speed. Add a beep to scanning activities. Turn scoring on and off and personalize scoring with the student`s name. Adjust the froggy manners to increase, decrease or eliminate burps! All from this easy-to-use settings dialogue box.
