In this paper we address the problem of motivating students to acquire computer skills in word processing by organizing a series of activities based on a gamification approach. A suite of automatic tools give the students control of their learning progressions, provide immediate feedback to their activities, and engage them by modulating the difficulty of the proposed steps. Initial results with a group of History undergraduate students are presented, together with a proposal for a novel approach that is under test.en_EN
