Didactic games

Informatics can provide new and creative tools for education. "Personatges en joc" is an initiative of the Catalan government and UPC that aims to teach children about Catalan historic figures with the use of videogames.

Personatges en joc is a videogame collection developed by the Catalan government with the collaboration of UPC. It currently contains two titles, dedicated to Narcís Monturiol and Joan de Peratallada.
The project’s main goal is to inform in a didactic way about several historical figures related to Science and Technology in Catalonia. Each title in the collection is dedicated to one figure, and provides information about his story in an interactive way. Along the course of the game, the user is provided with relevant information about the main character. Every once in a while, he will he prompted with questions to assure he has understood this information in order to continue playing.
The development of this kind of didactic games improves education quality and motivates students to engage in studying topics that otherwise could seem uninteresting.
