This trend has gained rapid momentum in order to address the key persisting issues in education: Dissatisfaction in achieving learning objectives by the learner and not being sufficiently prepared to transfer learning in the local community context (ADEC “Abu Dhabi Higher Education Strategic Plan”, July 2010).

    AP&L Phases

    Working towards creating a game-based learning program for all ages is a daunting task. For this reason the learning genres: ESTEEM GAMES have been developed. These geners are focused for all age brackets. The following are the three phases of the AP&L Curriculum:

    AP&L for k-12:ADEC standards and USA Common Core standards will be applied consistently throughout the game designs. Complicated concepts will be focused.

    AP&L for University:National Quality Authority (NQA) Standards are used to create learning objectives for university level games.

    AP&L for Corporate:Industry standards like the ISO and company specific learning and performance standards will be used to create Staff games for team building and Corporate Culture Change Management.
