The video game industry is expanding continually and touches a more and more wide target. It's essential to deliver a preventive message in front of present games on the market. This is why the PGW Junior place is realized in close collaboration with PédaGoJeux, who informs and makes sensitive on the video game. PédaGoJeux is born from the will of several institutional, professional and associative partners to create a site of reference information about the video games and their use.
PédaGoJeux has two main objectives :
- Make sensitive the general public on the stakes in the child welfare and on the good use of the video games
- Supply to parents and educators an educational approach of the video game.
PédaGoJeux reminds parents to check the ESRB rating before buying a game !
