In a current study as part of the #ABCforJobs project, Benjamin Schnitzer – who is a PhD student at the ACI and project manager at KORION Interactive GmbH – is investigating the potentials of a serious mobile game called “Sky Dash”.

Learning effectiveness, self-efficacy, and hedonistic quality of the gamified application for mobile devices is being evaluated in a between-groups design l with employees from FraGround’s logistics department. The mobile game is used to learn the so-called “three-letter codes”, which represent necessary special knowledge for FraGround employees. In addition, the game trains reading speed and rapid naming speed, which are also key skills in the working context of a baggage handler.

An employee of FraGround is testing the mobile game on a mobile device.

The BIBB/BMBF-funded #ABCforJobs project focuses on sectors in which employees are confronted with the digitalisation of work processes. The aim is to reach low-literacy employees and the unemployed in order to strengthen their retention or re-employment.
