Learning Games For Students and Employees

Educators and trainers across the world have come to an ingenious conclusion: adults, teens, and children all seem to have some level of positive reaction to the video game culture. The amount of time, focus, and energy an individual will often spend working their way through the various levels of a serious or a social video game can be quite surprising, and sometimes absolutely staggering. What educators have concluded is that if learning is presented in the form of one of these games, the student will spend more time committing the lessons to memory, and perhaps retain the information better and longer. Thus, the learning games were born.

Children learn math and science principles, spelling, grammar and vocabulary, and much more with learning games. There are video games designed to teach new languages, advanced concepts in ecology, anthropology, and biology, and many, many more topics and lessons. What evolved was the finding that the combination of visual and audio stimulus, along with the goal orientation of the games, themselves, led learners to work on the lessons longer and to retain more information. Trainers and educators are taking this concept and using learning games for a whole new realm of teaching.

There are learning games which depict various careers and what each involves to help individuals decide on a career path. Trainers in some areas use such games to train their police officers in spotting suspicious activity and distinguishing characteristics. These games can be developed for many different vocations, and many different lessons, and overall, they are viewed as an enjoyable and stimulating way to learn.

Healthcare is actually one area in which the use of learning games has been expanding. Games are developed to teach medical employees about giving excellent patient service, improving hospital compliance, and encouraging personal health. The game relies on the naturally competitive nature of the players to keep them riveted and wanting to improve their scores. They have fun, trying to “beat the game,” and, while they are not look, they are learning and committing to memory important training points. Utilizing this method not only leads to better trained personnel; it also leads to less grumbling and higher job satisfaction overall. Used correctly, these games can also be used to build cohesiveness within the teams on your staff.

There are a variety of software designers and video game developers who will work with you, whether you are a teacher, a professor, or a business manager, to create learning games that will meet your needs and teach the lessons you need taught. These are trained professionals who understand how to create a rich setting for your game, hold the attention of the players, and get the message across. Your students or trainees will have fun moving through the levels, learning the skills you wish to teach, both so they can be successful in the game as well as in the job or the class. You will be thrilled with the information retention that results, and the game is always available for a refresher when necessary.
