With "World of Classcraft," teachers reach schoolchildren where they feel at home: in the virtual world. German schools are using video role-playing to motivate them to learn.

The game resembles familiar role-playing games. In "World of Classcraft," schoolchildren form teams. Their avatars have to complete certain learning assignments and behave well toward each other. They thereby win experience points and rise to higher levels. "Classcraft" was developed by Canadian physics teacher and web designer Shawn Young. Several schools in the German city of Baden-Baden are already using the game.
