    Priory Woods - Switch videos are animations or slideshows set to music, which can be controlled by a range of common assistive access devices. They are designed to help children understand and generalise cause and effect (the action / reaction bond), one of the foundation stones for early learning. The videos can be played online or downloaded for use on a PC or Macintosh computer.

    Tarheel gameplay has cause-and-effect gameplays that can be accessed for free and work on multiple platforms. Click on the link and then click on Find a gameplay to see a list of already made gameplays or click on Create to make your own.  A gameplay is a video that has been modified so that after a set time of playing, it will stop and give a visual prompt.  Play will continue once the mouse is clicked or a keyboard button is pressed. The links below are two gameplays.  One is more language based and the other focuses on math.
