About the game BabelAR
The game is aimed at pupils between 7 and 12 years old, and the pupils have to work together in this collaborative-multiplayer Augmented Reality (AR) game to reach a common goal. They will need to use their language(s) and language knowledge to help a little creature called Babel, who sadly enough has lost all its language knowledge.
Standard, minority, migrant and curriculum languages are incorporated in the game, which can be played with fourteen languages. These are Arabic, Basque, Dutch, English, French, Frisian, German, Irish, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish. Babel will not only take pupils on a linguistic journey, but also to three Augmented Reality worlds. In one of these, a swarm of animals will walk on their classroom floor. Pupils who played the game already were more than excited to share their languages and help their team members in the Augmented Reality worlds.
