Scramble, part of The Training Arcade®, is a word puzzle game that allows you to scramble up a word or sentence for your learners to decipher.
In each mode, players must complete the word/sentence before the timer runs out and are awarded hints for each correct puzzle solved that can be used to help in future puzzle rounds.
Scramble makes a great post-training knowledge check or way to reinforce important terminology.
Using Games in eLearning
First things first, how do you know you’re using the right game? In The Training Arcade, we have many different game mechanics, so you can ensure you’re incorporating a game that will help you achieve your training goals.
For example, a branching style game tends to help learners with deductive reasoning and allows you to emphasize certain behaviors you want to encourage, by showing negative consequences of the wrong behaviors.
The Scramble game we’re talking about today works well for learning objectives like recall, categorization, and strategic thinking. It can help you improve learner skills in describing, explaining, and identifying.
