Brute Force Learning

Quick thought for the day and a little Friday fun!

How many of your learners use this approach to serious games?


Even though the instructions are right in front of the stick man, they’re ignored/not considered; consider how learners behave when faced with serious games, we see the same behaviour – looking for the next button usually.

Is this habit overriding our abilaity to take a step back and think about problems logically? Do we see training as a click through exercise. If so we should be asking ourselves what is the point of training when it all revolves around a next button; when completion is more important that the process.

Serious games may seem frustrating to begin with, for those who ‘expect’  training to work in a certain way; but they do force learners to use critical thinking skills; skills that are vital to business in unsteady times.
