Press Release Summary: There is a great deal of hype surrounding training games, including the recent survey of the worlds top 500 companies where 135 of the Global Fortune 500 intend to adopt training games for learning, with the USA, UK and Germany leading the way.
Press Release Body: The reality is that playing and having fun are two of the most important elements in the education of a human being. When knowledge is acquired in an enjoyable way memory retention is improved by over 70%.
Games appeal to the emotive side of learning. This method of learning generates a positive experience when incorporated with important or critical subject matter.
Training Games are serious training tools designed to encourage people to gain a deeper understanding of their subject and the challenges they face.
Using training games can help accelerate learning, by compressing the topic in to focussed learning content that can be absorbed easily by the learner or trainee.
Despite their fun image our training games are very serious business tools used to develop understanding and consistency throughout teams and organisations. A training game creates a positive interaction between the learner and the topic in an exhilarating and fun way.
One of the most important reasons why training games are so effective is down to their cost effectiveness. In almost all cases the cost of training is slashed when you consider the cost per learner in comparison with the capital outlay and the improvement in knowledge retention.
Training games enable you to present real world situations in a relevant and real time way, where learners feel the excitement, pressures, behaviours and perspectives you can't engineer in any other way.
The great thing about using training games is that they package critical business information and re-present it in a non-threatening way. The methodology of playing a game generates a serious learning experience, delivered in a light-hearted environment. The end result can be understanding and consistency throughout the entire business giving your company that competitive edge.
There is a whole range of training games from Customer Service to First Aid with prices from £99 and are available from www.gamethingy.com . Their motto is: For training to work, it has to be fun. If its fun, it will also be engaging and the more engaging it is, the more memorable it becomes.
Try it might just be the best training you have ever seen!
