For the leaders of today and tomorrow: game-based training for FLYT managers
Attensi is collaborating with the Norwegian Crown Prince Couple’s Fund to reduce the drop-out rate in secondary education and help young people navigate the challenges they may face at school, college and in life.
The youth development program, called Flyt, has been set up to prevent social isolation and promote wellbeing among youngsters. Every year around 500 young people participate in the program, with great results.
In 2022, FLYT used the Attensi SKILLS platform to provide game-based training to equip more than 80 FLYT leaders with the skills they need to deliver the program locally to young people in secondary schools in Norway.
To continue to expand the program, Attensi is:
– helping FLYT reach their participation goal of 10,000 young people by 2026
– providing its technology to support the training of both program leaders and its participants.
“We’re keen to contribute to ensuring that everyone can achieve their potential and are looking forward to the collaboration with the Crown Prince Couple’s Fund to help FLYT managers through our solution.”
– Trond Aas, CEO, Attensi
How gamified training improves leadership skills
Leaders have to make important decisions everyday. They need to be able to motivate people and manage performance. These skills are always evolving and leaders never stop learning.
Attensi’s gamified training is an innovative approach to learning and development. Using cutting-edge technology, our immersive training solution puts leaders in a virtual world that mirrors real life. The interactive nature of the training allows leaders to develop their skills effectively.
Putting you in the picture
Combining 3D modelling with knowledge of human behaviour, our gamified training creates authentic environments where leaders can solve a range of problems. This is extremely beneficial for the leaders at FLYT, and will help them to better understand how to approach situations with the young people they’re working with.
How helpful would it be to be able to practise a difficult conversation as if it were real? With gamified simulation training, you can.
Decisions make an impact
Using gamified simulation training, you can customise any number of consequences depending on the decisions made by the player.
This way, leaders can see the genuine impact of the decisions they make. As a result, when it comes to real life, leaders are equipped to make better, more informed decisions.
A safe place to fail
Mistakes happen. It’s what you do when they happen that matters. We like to think of them as learning opportunities. When leaders are given the freedom to make mistakes without consequences, they can use the lesson to do better next time.
Learning from failure is a critical part of success. Getting things wrong allows leaders to improve and grow vital skills. Gamified training gives players the unique opportunity to make decisions without the fear of real-world consequences.
Gamified training provides measurable results
In traditional, classroom-based learning, it’s nearly impossible to truly measure the success of training programmes.
But with game-based training, players will get real-time feedback and scores. Being able to measure success means you can tailor your training to make sure you’re achieving the goals that matter most.
Repetition equals retention
Repetition in learning plays an important role in improving knowledge retention. If we learn something only once, the chances of quickly forgetting what we’ve learnt are incredibly high. Studies have shown that our ability to remember something depends crucially on the number of times we’ve reviewed it.
With gamified training, players feel motivated to keep going back to improve their scores. This repetition helps new skills and knowledge stick.
Learning anytime, anywhere
We rely on our mobile devices to make our lives easier. We use our devices for shopping, booking travel, and staying in touch with friends and family. Why should learning and development be any different?
Gamified training can be accessed with devices we’re already familiar with, like mobile phones and tablets. This reduces the amount of time spent getting to and from in-person training and means players can learn at a time and place that suits their schedule.
This is particularly important for FLYT that can no longer provide training for managers locally. Using gamified training, they’re able to make sure their leaders are learning the skills they need within the app.
Out with the old, in with the new
Mobile learning appeals to young leaders. Millennials and Gen Z enjoy learning on-the-go. At Attensi, we’re committed to delivering a platform that fosters a positive learning experience. Providing flexibility and convenience is a huge part of that experience.
Let’s be straightforward about it. No-one enjoys sitting in a stuffy classroom for hours and in the end they haven’t really learned anything.
Research shows that intense 20 minute bursts of study, separated by 10 minute breaks results in better long term memory retention. The bite-sized modules used in gamified training allows players to learn at a pace that works for them. Inevitably, this makes learning more effective and engaging.
Gamification makes learning fun
The unique learning experience you get when using gamified training is a fun way to learn.
Because it feels like a game, it’s more engaging and rewarding. This makes leaders come back for more and motivates players to continue learning.
We’re excited to help develop the skills of leaders at FLYT and to help them on their journey of nurturing the next generation of leaders.
