Boreal Tales is an edutainment application that combines world-building and writing to stimulate young people's imaginations and motivate them to write. By creating stories using the hundreds of evocative visual elements provided in the game, students invent worlds that will inspire them to write. Writing is encouraged by being fully integrated into the game mechanics, and is therefore an integral part of the fun of the game. The teacher has a Web platform that allows him or her to submit writing challenges to the students, correct their work, and then make it available to the rest of the class. (Note that AREN is not a distributor of the resource in the Canada/Quebec region).
