The Case Study
The Prince Albert Grand Council and the Office of the Treaty Commissioner sought to incorporate the rich and historically vibrant history of Canada and the treaties developed by the first nations with the natives into the student syllabus.
Due to the dreary nature of the subject, the offices intended to develop certain games that would engage interactive student response as well as provide them with a means to learn the subject.
The objective was to take these games into the mainstream high school syllabus and make them part of the testing system particularly for this subject.
Five games were developed after acquiring the storyboarding from teachers of the subject which were related to fishing, yacht racing, horse riding, berry picking and eventually a Q&A game.
These games were selected as reference activities done by the old native tribes and each was preceded by questions related to that specific tribe or area.
Students would start off with a game, answer questions based on their syllabus and proceed to the next. Finally the Q&A game will record their answers and give grade. The system was made on an architecture to make future editing simple.
