Gamification of education - Is it a buzz or the way millennials learn, retain and recall knowledge?

Why gaming in eLearning?

  1.  Games are fun, have levels, tolerate failure, are competitive, award points and badges
  2. Games on mobile devices offer flexible learning environment
  3. Self paced with instant feedback

Skyscape has developed Snap Word gaming platform which includes a free APP with:

  • Cue cards and answers that are grouped into levels and modules
  • Coins are earned or traded for hints and certificates awarded at completion of each level

Use your imagination to create your game cards and distribute to student group(s).  Get started with our library that includes:

  • 500+ skeletal, muscular and organ systems images
  • Add calculations, clinical scenarios or NCLEX questions

We’ve built the framework but the possibilities are  endless.

Try the free app and contact us to discuss how we can work together to gamify the classroom.
