Who Wants to be a Millionaire? will soon be available as an educational tool to be licensed by schools in the UK for use in classrooms and by parents at home.
An online facility of syllabus-relevant questions, Millionaire for Schools, has been developed by educational IT and digital content firm Charanga, under licence from 2waytraffic.
All the questions have been written by teachers and approved by an educational advisory board.
This marks the first time that 2waytraffic has issued a WWTBAM? licence for educational purposes.
"Who Wants to be a Millionaire? is an incredibly successful format - licensed to over 120 countries around the world," said David Christopher, director of consumer products at 2waytraffic. "Millionaire for Schools is a fantastic way for students to have fun and learn at the same time. We're delighted to be able to support such an innovative project and we'll be looking to roll the concept out in other countries."
Millionaire for Schools will enable teachers to choose from hundreds of existing quizzes and questions covering a range of subjects. Familiar features from the TV show, such as 50:50 and Ask the Audience are included.
