Games Provide:

Feedback to the Learner

Learners want and need feedback on their performance. Games give them immediate feedback on the quality of their input - their success­es and their errors. With the appropriate corrective feedback, this can become an invaluable learning opportunity.

Games Provide:

Feedback to the Trainer

Games create a practice field where learners interact with the topic, demonstrating their knowledge and ability to apply the information. By observing this real-time demonstration, the trainer can adjust the subsequent level of lecture, readings and interventions, accordingly.

Games Provide:

A Less threatening Learning Environment

Because the game format is playful, the inherent challenge of the material, even new or difficult material, is less threatening. During game play, seemingly difficult questions and scenarios are "just part of the game". And, teachers can use the window following classroom responses to build a bridge between the topic and the learner.


Accelerate Learning

Games allow you to compress your topic and demonstrates learning into shorter periods of time, accelerating the speed of learning. The visual presentation, oral interactions, and active participation of game play appeals to all of the learning styles (visual, auditory and kinesthetic), involving both the rational and experiential mind that helps players remember what they have learned.
