Games have the capacity to educate players and raise their social awareness in a fun and exciting manner. The interactive nature of games can help inform others through the use of gaming principles (such as point systems, competition, and quest rewards) that encourage participation and user engagement.
We helped an IT service organization launch a quiz game for human rights awareness and social responsibilities as part of their employee training program. For this project, we reskinned one of our educational HTML5 games to incorporate human rights concepts.
Game-based learning is a method used to help raise awareness of an important event or topic. It a very powerful tool for communicating ideas by adding game elements related to a specific topic. Learning is performed through educational games.
Teaching through educational games has been an established strategy in allowing learners to engage with the lesson. Since 2010, statistics show that at least 350 consumer brands, such as Adobe, NBC, Walgreens, Ford, and Southwest Airlines, have found success in integrating game-based learning into training and seminars.
Using game-based learning as a core strategy, we helped our client create a simple and effective way to teach players about Human Rights. The Millionaire Human Rights Quiz is a reskin of the Millionaire Quiz with a twist. Questions asked are exclusively about important concepts on the different human rights and international laws.
Here is a preview of how the game looks like:
Through a process called game reskinning, the core mechanics of Millionaire Quiz were adopted to make the Millionaire Human Rights Quiz game. This technique provides a cost-effective and reliable means of deploying social activist games to a target audience.
Recent studies show that using games has been a successful strategy in engaging target learners. Its success has shown a projected global market expected to grow from 4.91 billion US dollars in 2016 to 11.94 billion US dollars after three years.
Here are some of the reasons why HTML5 games should be used for game-based learning.
1. Motivates through Interactive Learning
HTML5 games are a visually appealing form of learning. It catches the attention of the audience and promotes learning through interactive strategies. Players are motivated to learn because of the rewards and progression system found in HTML5 games for learning.
2. Engages Players Effectively
Using HTML5 games provides the opportunity for teaching complex ideas in a simplified manner. Concepts can be divided into modules to allow better retention of information. In this way, even complex concepts can be learned within a few hours of gameplay of cognitive games.
Using visual stimulation, games help explain concepts that are sometimes too complex to understand using conventional teaching. Thus, the learning experienced by players through visual stimulation becomes more relevant and retainable.
3. Provides Monitorable and Immediate Feedback
Another advantage of using HTML5 games for learning is that it can collect information to monitor progress. Real-time and personalized reports can be implemented and generated. Immediate feedback allows players to know where they need to improve. It also helps them monitor their own performance and progress.
4. Promotes Skill Development
HTML5 games produce the results needed through a practical approach. Game-based learning allows players to practice or experience each lesson. As a result, players can develop new knowledge and skills through repetition or application.
Lead generation is a feature made possible by HTML5 games. The interest generated by gamified advocacies for social awareness can be sustained through lead generation. Having a registration or contact form secures a way of generating potential supporters. Registered players can be compiled for purposes of finding aspiring donors and volunteers.
Developing HTML5 games for learning new and important concepts has been a milestone for us. Through a game reskin, we helped our clients in their campaign for human rights awareness in a more active and engaging way of learning.
