Sampaio, Bruno; Morgado, Carmen; Barbosa, Fernanda
International Association for Development of the Information Society, Paper presented at the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS) International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in Digital Age (CELDA) (Madrid, Spain, Oct 19-21, 2012)
Games are currently being used by an increasing number of people, of different ages and in different contexts. Usually, they provide fun ways of interaction, collaboration, and competition among players. These aspects may be very important in an educational context, since many research studies confirm that games have many positive effects on students when used as learning activities. Therefore, we present in this paper a Collaborative Quiz game concept, which promotes collaboration between students and motivates them for learning. This game will be created using a graphical development environment currently under development, denominated Epik. (Contains 1 figure.)
