Game used as a teaching tool

A developer has modified the game "Civilization III" to serve as a primer on Canadian history. Historicanada is being used on the Civ III engine to show that while Canada's history isn't heavy with war, there were many other important factors, social and economical, that are practical with the game engine.

While I wouldn't consider Civilization III a video game in the sense that Halo or GTA are, it still has a loyal audience, and for a company to use it as a way to teach young people about their heritage and Canada's origins is very cool.
