Navigate Scenario: GameScapes for Learn Psychology Preparing Students for Employment in the 21st Century Workplace with Experiential Learning Jones & Bartlett Learning is leading the way in the delivery of authoritative content through GameScapes, a highly immersive and engaging simulation platform, developed by Toolwire, leaders in experiential learning­. Through cutting-edge immersive learning simulations, students are able to practice essential creative and critical thinking tactics, and enhance communication and problem solving skills related to key course concepts.

Overview GameScapes are “day-in-the-life” learning simulations that immerse students in photo-realistic settings with interactive video-characters and engaging storylines. In this GameScape, students must work to gather knowledge—all mapped to key course learning objectives—through exploration, research, and interviews. Creativity, quick thinking, and deductive reasoning play a key role in students’ ability to successfully analyze the situation, and a game-like point system will both measure performance and provide a sense of competition.

Game Design Philosophy Toolwire’s learning game design philosophy is influenced by years of experience and research. The following points from James Paul Gee’s “Principles for Learning through Games” nicely summarize the key attributes ofNavigate Scenario: GameScapes for Learn Psychology: Create Opportunity for Identity Allow Customization Foster Interaction Motivate Production Encourage Risk-taking Develop Cross-functional teams Explore/Think Laterally/Rethink Goals Inspire Pleasant Frustration Design Situated Meanings Deliver “Just-in-Time” Results Promote Challenge and Consolidation Develop a Sense of Ownership

For more information on Learn Psychology GameScape, contact your Account Specialist at go.jblearning.com/findmyrep or visit www.thelearnseries.com


C o n t a c t U s To d a y t o L e a r n M o r e

GameScape Design Features INTERACTIVE STORY-BASED GAMING The interactive story incorporates the classic story arc structure (The Departure, The Initiation, The Return) at the foundation of so many myths, books, and movies. Through a pliable and adaptive game structure, these learner-driven “stories of consequence” are thus impacted by students’ decisions.

ROLE-PLAYING GAME DESIGN GameScapes scaffold learning and empower students who take the central role within the stories. Non-player archetype characters serve both as “virtual mentors” and as inquisitors that challenge students to demonstrate knowledge retention.

INTRINSIC INTEGRATION OF LEARNING OBJECTIVES When these key parts are woven in the right balance, learners can enjoy the thrill of the unexpected, as well as the reward of competing effectively, which only a game can deliver. GameScapes empower students to transfer their learning from the simulation and gaming experience to their own lives.
