Training Games and Activities

If you are confused by the apparently crazy numbers in front of the following two items, it is because we have been listing two reasons for using training games in each of the past 14 issues of the GameBlog. If you are curious, you can review the back issues.

29. Increased enthusiasm. Research data from classrooms and corporate training sessions indicate that participants who are involved in learning through games show greater enthusiasm. These participants enjoy the process of learning and the results they achieve. The same data indicate that the teachers and trainers are also enthusiastic about conducting training games and activities.

30. Large-scale participation. New types of games enable large groups to participate in the play. On the Internet, there are many massive multiplayer role-play simulations. These large-group games provide more economies of scale than ever before.
