Games are widely used as education tools, not just for pilots, soldiers and surgeons, but also in schools and businesses…

  • Games require players to:
        • construct hypotheses
        • solve problems
        • develop strategies
        • learn the rules of the in-game world through trial and error
        • juggle several different tasks
        • evaluate risks
        • make quick decisions
  • Playing games is, thus, an ideal form of preparation for the workplace of the 21st century…
