Game Based Learning

Game based learning (GBL) is pertinent in both formal and informal learning environments. GBL supports the acquisition and development of various hard and soft skills. Some of which involve communication skills, strategic skills, problem solving and social skills that help with breaking social barriers. In fact, games based learning is extremely helpful to individuals with disabilities because it makes the learning experience more engaging as it requires participation. Besides the benefits which this method of teaching employs, it involves the use of computer and video games specifically. Consequentially this encourages the take up of ICT and other computing subjects.
