This ongoing project focuses on the development of digital case simulations, which enable playful learning in the area of vocational nursing education. The focus is on complex, authentic scenarios that provide a realistic presentation of work processes in occupational nursing. Using the example of a residential nursing home, GBL scenarios are presented in line with the wider aims of nurse training
The project uses simulations of care scenarios to add a GBL element to the vocational training offered to nurses. Users control an in-game avatar that moves from one scenario to the next, creating a game flow that improves learning.
The digital learning environment has been designed to be a fully adaptable recreation of authentic work environments, linked to the wider vocational curriculum This allows learners to gain experience of real-life scenarios which they will meet in their later professionals work.
