Game-based learning, which is also termed as edutainment, is widely used as an effective method of training and education for its ability to involve learners in concepts that are otherwise difficult to teach. Most importantly, games are no longer looked upon as just tools for kids. Whether you’re a business organisation or an educational institution, you can use game-based learning to:
- Make learning fun
- Liven up the classroom
- Motivate learners to learn outside the classroom
- Involve learners in the material so they learn more effectively
- Encourage learners to learn from their mistakes
Through game-based learning, learners can explore situations, evaluate options, take decisions and perform actions. Generally, game-based learning is designed to balance the subject matter with the game play and the ability of the player to retain and apply the subject matter to the real world.
