WHY DIGITAL GAME-BASED LEARNING?

At least 50% of today's workforce has grown up part of the digital generation. From an early age, these employees embraced pagers and cellular phones for their means of communication; mastered simple computer programming and video games; and pioneered technologies that made the Internet a popular and ubiquitous medium for mass communication and learning.

Appearing everywhere from SAT-preparation courses to online giveaways and promotions, digital games offer an irresistible opportunity to capture the imagination and easily instruct this audience.

From Sesame Street, to edutainment CD’s, to Jeopardy!, Trivial Pursuit, and now, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire", Digital Game-Based Learning engages this generation in their own language, presenting serious content in a memorable fashion.

IS THIS A FRIVOLOUS TRAINING METHOD? DO WE TRIVIALIZE IMPORTANT MATERIAL BY INCORPORATING A GAMES APPROACH?

Consider the following advantages over traditional training media:
       People stay tuned in until the end, because Digital Game-Based Learning is
fun and engaging.
       Absorbing the material in a relaxed frame of mind, employees learn better.
Several studies confirm this observation.
       The participant retains more, because our games reinforce important points
over and over.
       Learning is tracked. Games keep track of accuracy in responses, allowing supervisors to evaluate performance. Instead of sweating out the experience, employees enjoy the learning process.
 
WHAT IF YOU REALLY HATE GAMES?
       Each game-based solution is presented alongside a traditional, non-game alternative.
       Each employee chooses between these comparable formats, empowered by our software to select the most appropriate learning method.
       Digital Game-Based Learning has proved highly effective in many technical and business settings, including the medical community. If doctors can succeed with game-based learning, why can't your workforce?
