Article by Ken Thompson, last updated February 2021

I am delighted to publish a new infographic "THE NEUROSCIENCE AND PSYCHOLOGY OF GAME-BASED LEARNING" which summarises 12 key enabling elements of what makes a Business Game effective from a learning perspective with references to the neurological / psychological impacts. 

You can use the infographic as a design checklist to make sure that your game-based learning experiences are packing the absolute maximum punch!

If you would like me to send you an editable Powerpoint or PDF version of the Infographic just submit an enquiry with "GBL Infographic" in the subject.
