eduActiv8: Language Arts is a collection of short game-like activities designed to help early learners practice letter recognition, word identification, and spelling. Activities include letter flashcards and tracing, matching words to images, and building words from supplied letters. Five difficulty levels are available.
The original eduActiv8 project was started by Ireneusz Imiolek in 2011 (as pySioGame), and is used by families and schools around the world to engage young learners with basic educational concepts. While that project has developed significantly, it is aimed at desktop platforms, and attempts to build mobile-compatible versions from its PyGame codebase have not been fruitful. In 2019, development of this project was started using the LÖVE framework. This project shares no code with eduActiv8, but repurposes much of eduActiv8's design and assets with the goal of extending access to users of mobile devices.
- Completely free, ad free, and open source.
- Available in 14 languages, including (especially) lesser-used languages like Lakota.

Logo & Icon
- "The eduActiv8 apps are currently used in Iyápi Glukínipi Owáyawa, the comprehensive Lakota medium education track provided on the campus of Red Cloud Indian School. One of the major barriers to learning, teaching and revitalizing the Language is having access to quality Lakota Language materials. [H]aving open-source applications like these eduActive8 applications breaks those access barriers down."
