UNESCO, Ubisoft join hands to develop video games to educate children

It’s time to play video games – not for fun but for educating children. The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP), and Ubisoft – a French video game publisher – have joined hands together to develop video games for educational purpose.

From school students to adults, the video games will be designed to make the teaching-learning method more fun-loving and entertaining. The games will be also be developed keeping mentally challenged children in mind.

“The whole idea is to keep the fun and educate as many people as possible”, Dr Anantha K Duraiappah, Director, UNESCO (MGIEP), was quoted as saying by a news agency.

Zigor Hernandorena Juarros, Senior Project Manager, Fun Learning Department, Ubisoft, stressed the idea of making video games available for all regardless of people’s economic or health status.

“Not everybody can afford a console or the video games, ideally they should be free and the idea is to make personal computers or webpage friendly games while maintaining the triple-A quality and graphics,” he said.

While UNESCO focuses on sustainable development and utilising education for building peaceful and sustainable societies across the world, Ubisoft researchers are interested in developing games that promote collaboration and cooperation rather than violence and competition.

“Creating the games would help change the way the world has been inculcating education into children, but this time with a lot of fun”, he added.
