The Unlock: Employability Game
Unlock: Employability is a serious game for the education sector (aka game-based learning). It enables soft skills development for students through immersive, challenging, game play and team work. Set on a mysterious tropical island, learners must work together to solve puzzles and be selected for their dream job.
The game is a 3D, online game, designed to allow learners to practice their employability skills.
Here's what people think of it:
"We initially trialled the game in a lunchtime club and feedback from students was very positive - they said how much fun it was and wished they had more time to use it. So we extended the next session from 30 to 45 minutes which they really appreciated."
