In a report on its findings, “The Potential for Game-Based Learning to Improve Outcomes for Nontraditional Students,” funded by a $260,500 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the company identified multiple activities game elements can deliver to help these students “succeed in their academic journey”:
– By engaging them in ways to help them understand their learning styles and strengths and make better decisions as they choose programs and courses;
– To give them practice strategies and help them develop learning skills, such as how to approach assignments and manage their time;
– To give them “positive safe assessment” that’s nonjudgmental; and
– To help them develop a growth mindset and prove their own learning potential through “leveling up” in game-based challenges.
