Gamification offers several advantages, including:
It is a way to train people by engaging them in activities where they are highly motivated.
It involves new technologies (e.g. video games) that make it possible to observe participants’ attitudes and behaviour, giving observers clues as to how they would react in real-life situations.
It makes it possible to create “real-life” situations that prove to be excellent training grounds for developing decision-making capacities.
It makes it possible to build motivation, e.g. by building stark awareness of potential dangers among participants.
It is often directly connected with immersive environments, resulting in a highly powerful learning tool.
These environments can combine Artificial Intelligence, Virtual Reality or Augmented Reality technologies.
