Activity Overview

The starting point in the game is the five factors that play a role in creating an optimal learning experience:

  1. Learning motivation (24 cards) : Why do I study? i.e. ‘to become (more) skilled in a certain area’.
  2. Approaches to learning (19 cards): How do I prefer to learn? i.e. ‘I learn by doing it myself’.
  3. Learning skills (51 cards): What skills do I need to be able to learn effectively? To what extent do I already possess these skills? i.e. ‘distinguish between the significant and the trivial’.
  4. Learning conditions (41 cards): What conditions and what support do I need to learn in as pleasant a way as possible? To what extent are these needs met? i.e. ‘structured and comprehensible educational material’.
  5. Learning obstacles (27 cards): Who or what is preventing me from learning? i.e. ´I feel insecure when faced with learning new things’.

Depending on the context, greater or lesser emphasis can be laid on one or more of these factors, on its own or in combination with others.

Possibilities for application:

  • • The Learning Game is a useful aid for anyone who wants to gain insight into how their own learning process works and who or what plays an important role in the process.
  • • It is also suitable for professionals working with, or responsible for, the learning process of others i.e. teachers, trainers, coaches, social workers and managers.
