Face-to-face learning was the dominant delivery method with some elearning to deliver generally fact-based knowledge, for example, induction, food safety, OHS and so forth.

About Gaming - & Learning

Web Tools for Learners

As a student, I used historical fiction to help me learn history, and it worked. The learning promise for gaming appears to be much richer and deeper. I suspect much rote learning of definitions - of language, parts of systems, geography, etc. would be much more efficiently taught (and learned) by having students play simple games where they drag one part to its match-up connection, thus adding a kinesthetic componant to immediate feedback and repetition.
