The most important advantage is that this project builds on the digital competence of students to academic exclusion avoiding redirection in order to learn the language and literature in collaborative environments. The accessibility from different devices (PDA, mobile phones, DTV, laptops) can extend the learning process for any scenario in which the student is placed. The philosophy of the game also allows continuous improvement through access to language arts teachers to the structure of the game.
