Nowadays and since the year 2000, the Moroccan educational system like all the other system of educations evolve towards putting more and more emphasis on the Competency-based approach rather than learning contents. Specific pedagogical tool are necessary to develop such competences, especially with the well-known rupture between teaching practices and the digital culture of young people, marked by the increased use of information and communication technologies. Pedagogies that rely on the use of educational games emerged as a solution to change traditional practices .In this sense, we have experimented with the use of educational game circuit warz in a physics classroom .We have restricted its use to the lesson of the voltage divider and we have compared its contributions to those of a classical teaching method .The results found a huge improvement in areas like motivation, engagement and interaction inter-learners.
