Can video games help us learn? Yes, when doing it right.

Can video games help us learn? Yes, when doing it right.



While growing up with video games, something became clear to me: learning by doing isn't just effective; it's essentially how all humans learn naturally.



This principle, deeply rooted in my video game experiences, led to an innovative project at STIHL in 2021.



Our challenge? Educate a digitally hesitant audience (firefighters) on complex sawing techniques and strategic approaches in challenging situations.



The solution? Employ game mechanics in an app-based learning environment.



The result? Enhanced user satisfaction and understanding.



This approach wasn't just about making things fun. It was strategic, tapping into the power of experiential learning.



The key takeaway? Traditional methods have their place, but learning thrives on experimentation and engagement.



So, next time you're tackling a tough educational challenge, think like a gamer.



It might just be the game-changer (haha) you need ;)
