Training in Gamification with LEGO® Serious Play®
“Using the power of games to motivate, communicate and learn”
Are you introducing new systems that employees are slow to adopt? Do your employees have to do boring and repetitive tasks such as filling out forms and logging time or data? Do you have a knowledge base, learning program or internal forum that people hardly ever use?
At the same time you wonder how people can voluntarily spend hours swiping gems, balloons, kittens or other cute stuff across the screens of their mobile phones without getting bored and are eager to share their latest progress with other people in their network?
Why don’t you take advantage of the power of games?
In our Gamification and LEGO® Serious Play® trainings we give participants the opportunity to explore the effect and mechanisms of game based learning first hand. We have a closer look at the concepts of game, gamification and serious game and what differentiates them from each other. We look into different “game elements” that turn something serious into a game or a game into something serious. And of course we explore the psychological concepts of games on experience and motivation.
Introducing participants to the concept of gamification and the key elements of games, its motivational benefits and a selection of tools for business application. After participating in this training, participants will be able to:

- Understand and apply the different elements of a game such as feedback, storytelling or competition
