4mation Educational Resources


4Mation was formed in 1983. 4Mation rapidly established it self as an innovative educational software publishers in the UK. Many of 4Mation's titles won awards, and became firm favourites for use within schools.

Apart from producing educational software, 4Mation also produced bespoke software for both Education and Industry. In the past they have worked for clients such as LEGO Dacta, Acorn and Beran Instruments.

During the early days of computers in primary education, 4mation's Granny's Garden was the program which convinced many teachers that computers really did have a place in the classroom.

4mation are still running and selling updated versions of Granny's Garden today.

Jacaranda Software distributed 4Mation Software titles in Australia.
