What we have to learn to do, we learn by doing - Aristotle
In Aristotle’s famous teachings, he advocated action and participation of the learner. Although such an ancient quote, there is so much wisdom in it for today’s educational system.
Authenticity in learning, gamification and application of skills to real world events and situations stimulate interest levels and inevitably promotes learning. Epikon designs games to become the catalyst for enthusiasm in learning. As language learners play they are no longer confined to their classroom but instead are actively participating in their own learning.Through the application of the grammatical skills within the game, a greater understanding of the strategies and concepts become embedded within the learner making it more meaningful.
Game-based learning is an emerging practice. More and more teachers are finding it to be a useful tool for individualization and assessments. Classrooms can cater to specific needs and abilities at a much higher rate. As the educational trends move forward, a teacher cannot exclude this opportunity for incorporating games within the classroom. More and more studies are showing the increase in motivation and learning for understanding because of game based learning.
Epikon games encourages language teachers to foster an environment of inspired learning through games. By using a game-based learning method, students emerge in the games and actively participate in their own learning. As a result, students are learning by doing.
