The term "serious games" sounds like a contradiction, but it’s not. The term actually refers to a game designed for educational or training purposes. The "serious" adjective can refer to products used by industries like defense, education, scientific exploration, health care, emergency management, city planning, engineering, religion, and politics. Gamification of learning is exploding as computer and Internet-savvy young people enter the workforce and their employers strive to teach and train them in efficient ways for the 21st century.
According to a study by the Entertainment Software Association, 70 percent of major employers utilize interactive software and games to train employees. Additionally, more than 75 percent of businesses and non-profits already offering video game-based training plan to expand their usage in the next 3 to 5 years. The gamification of learning has begun, and Designing Digitally Inc. is excited to be on the forefront of this amazing educational and training movement.
Game-based training is a very effective and highly interactive instruction tool. When combined with lecture-based training, serious games can increase participant interest and make the training process more enjoyable, memorable and effective. That’s because today’s students will be tomorrow’s workers, and students today are skilled and accustomed to computer and hand-held technologies for entertainment, communication and learning.
