More than child’s play

The Advertiser - Careers - - Front Page -

COM­PUTER games are not just for chil­dren, with ex­perts re­veal­ing they can be a use­ful tool to train work­ers in a va­ri­ety of pro­fes­sions.

Games can be de­vel­oped specif­i­cally for in­dus­tries or com­pa­nies to use in vir­tual sim­u­la­tion sit­u­a­tions for staff to give them op­por­tu­ni­ties to prac­tise or broaden their ex­pe­ri­ence.

But many games com­monly played by chil­dren and adults alike for re­cre­ation also can serve a train­ing pur­pose, such as build­ing team­work.
