The power of boardgames and gamified simulations is in the way they maximize learner to learner interaction. During a game-based process, learners don’t look into computer screens, listen to boring PowerPoint driven lectures, or stay passive. Instead, learners think critically, take decisions, collaborate and are at the centre of the learning process.
Through carefully crafted game mechanics, games create an environment of intense challenge and provocation. A desire to win and healthy competition keeps learner motivation high.
Skills Cafe’ games are simple to administer. A board game can be run in the cafeteria, at a recreation room or over Zoom/Teams/WebEx.
