Abstract

«Conectado» is a video game designed and developed to raise awareness against bullying, through the use of emotions. It has been proposed as a tool to help education professionals to teach on this subject in a more interactive way and with greater emotional involvement of young people between 12 and 17 years. The video game has already been tested, for free, in six different schools, where students and teachers have shared this experience.
