Are You Using Gaming for Learning?
Instructional designers often rely on an intuitive sense that gaming supports adult learning principles. The game dynamics of achievement, rewards, points and bonuses support learner motivation. The other game mechanics — progression, urgent optimism and cascading information — evoke the principle of readiness to learn. Games designed to mirror real-life problems or challenges engage the adult principle of orientation to learning. Finally, games designed as skill practice or knowledge reinforcement allow learners to use what they know and to be acknowledged for having that knowledge.
