It is more important than ever to create interesting and clever methods to encourage learners to engage with the content you are designing. If you look back in time before everything had to go digital, you’ll find that card sort games are a great way to engage with learners and have them manipulate content.
But what types of content are appropriate for card sorts? And, how do they relate to instructional strategies?
To answer these questions, we’ve asked our good friend, learning game designer and part-time advisor here at EGS, Karl Kapp, to share some ideas on card sort activities to help clarify when they can be used most appropriately.
Fortunately, Karl just created the L&D Mentor Academy and one of the lessons in one of the courses in that program is about using a card sorting to help learners understand examples and non-examples of concepts. Karl said he’d be willing to share that part of the course with us right here on our blog.
So, here’s Karl’s guidance on creating a card sort exercise.
