I would like your opinion on this for your kids (or kids to be).
There is a lot to learn from 5 to 12 years old. No game effectively keep the kids glued to a screen to learn things, but most kids want to play games.
I thought of a MMORPG where kids would have to answer fast and basic trivia questions to effectively gain XP.
Here's how. During a basic fight, let's say you hit 10 times. During this time, you have to answer to questions. (Let's say 3 questions per non-boss fight.) Each good answer results in a 33% XP gained from the total XP the mob gives.
Here comes the tricky part. Answering questions during fights is boring and annoying. To answer that, it would be possible to fill a bar with questions, either on the PC or on a phone or tablet. This way, we could give our phone to our kid for them to answer questions for half and hour and the let them play for the same time. They learn their tables, flags, forms, colours, lakes, verbs, etc. Then, they use this to level their char.
How about that?
