WHY GAMES?

In a 2018 client survey we asked how our games compared to traditional powerpoint training.

It is generally accepted that people retain more information when they experience and get actively involved in something rather than just passively hearing or seeing something (see the Cone of Experience by Edgar Dale below).  Our games fully engage participants in a fun activity but with rules and events that elicit the key learning objectives. We believe that this method of training will significantly enhance the amount participants retain.

To ensure the game that is being developed is effective there are a number of principles to consider. Read a full review here in our IOSH article.

KEY BENEFITS

  • Fully engages participants.
  • Experience, observe and reflect on behaviours.
  • Introduces team dynamics and discussion.
  • Easily integrate the learning of new skills as part of a game.
  • Memorable activity
