The Top 5 Advantages of Game-Based Learning


Digital Game-Based Learning, also referred to as Gamification, is perfect for training employees on a multitude of topics, ensuring understanding of company policies, promoting attentiveness in important meetings, and even making a larger and more unique impact during sales proposals.

Game-based learning is also beneficial in training sessions to see where employees are struggling and which employees are proficient in company policies and/or procedures. A quiz game, for example, can be used to review policies, hone sales techniques by using it as a sales training game, or simply as a team building exercise.  

There are 5 main advantages of digital game-based learning:

  1. Creates a positive competitive environment - The chance for team play encourages individuals to strive for their best and use teamwork to achieve more than they could on their own.
  2. Stimulates focus - Real-time discussion and analysis of learning topics through interactive power point games strengthens participants’ attentiveness to subject matters.
  3. Increases participation - Participants will be more willing to provide honest feedback and overcome the “shyness factor” when using electronic keypads to voice their opinions.
  4. Enhances meaning and boosts retention - Active learning provides better focus and awareness which leads to greater memory recall in participants.
  5. Provides an engaging experience - Games boost the energy of the room to catch participant’s attention and provide opportunities for peer interaction.

In addition, game-based learning also reduces training time. This is accomplished due to increases in efficiency through the use of instant assessments to determine each individual’s readiness for additional instruction. This enables instructors to have greater control over the presentation material and their learners’ focus, which leads to less time needed for training and a higher learning curve. 

Many interactive PowerPoint games are designed to be simple to use and customize while incorporating invaluable information to keep engagement and informational retention high. Effectively, this allows the creation of interactive PowerPoints which may be used to create various types of sales training games as well as leadership training games. 

There are 5 reasons why game-based learning is effective:

  1. People are highly engaged by games.
  2. Material is more comprehendible when placed into an enjoyable atmosphere.
  3. Social groups are established to encourage productive discussions.
  4. Games provide an opportunity to be creative and innovative, which can lead to new ideas.
