MyUK Launches to Teach Parliamentary Democracy
There is an interesting game/experience application by the Parliamentary Education Service and Preloaded called ‘MyUK‘ just gone live. Its aimed at young people and is about teaching them the core ideas of parliamentary democracy. I did have a look at a beta version of this while doing a bit of work with the PES, so its great to see it out in the wild. It has lots of fun little mini-games within a wrapper about running your own political party. One of the things I like about it, is that there are elements of compromise in the overall experience, something important in the democratic process but that rarely feature in games, which are about winning or losing.
Here’s a screenshot of me starting to bore the MPs as I try to rally support for a new bill about stopping people being noisy in train carriages (an issue close to my own heart 🙂 ) Well worth checking out!
