Wikiduca, learning vocabulary through videogames

Wikiduca, learning vocabulary through videogames | Resources and Tools for EFL Teachers | Scoop.it
Inma Alcázar's insight:

Wikiduca is the project of two creative Spanish young minds, David Anthony and Anton Popovine, who decided to work on this educational browser-game to help children learn English vocabulary through videogames.

 

Starting from the idea that children love video games, fantasy worlds and solving mysteries, David and Anton propose exciting quests and minigames for them. As children increase their vocabulary words, they gain more powers and new missions within the game. The key point is "learning by playing".
Wikieduca is basically based on a business freemium model, that is, most of the content will be free except a small part of extras. You can read this news in Spanish.
