WHAT IS EDUCATION ARCADE?
WHY CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS AND EDUCATION ARE IMPORTANT
As our digital lives grow, people face the threat of cyber enabled crime more and more everyday. Recent studies have shown that cyber crime is growing in complexity, scope and scale every year.
We've seen it first hand; people that have lost their life savings, deposits for a new house or their retirement fund. It's heart-breaking.
This is why the Education Arcade is focused on providing people with a memorable learning experience designed to help keep them safe online.
We do this through the use of gamified e-Learning – a powerful tool that reshapes the learning experience by making it fun, interactive and educational.

CYBER SECURITY AWARENESS
Thank you for visiting Education Arcade. My name is Brock and I want to share my inspiration for creating educational video games.
I’ve been working in IT for many years now and absolutely love the work I do in information security. However, one particularly busy day, I received a reminder to complete my annual and mandatory e-Learning modules.
These were your typical corporate e-Learning modules, crammed full of wordy paragraphs. Later that night I was reflecting on my day and realised that I could only remember a handful of lessons from that e-Learning module. As soon as I finished the module I was back into my busy day completing the work and activities I was employed for.
I found this strange. Forgetting something from only a few hours ago, yet being able to recall other learning experiences from when I was much younger.
I recall playing educational video games when I was 8 years old. Years later, I still have vivid memories of how those games taught me anything from mathematics to problem solving.
I came to the realisation that there was far too much content in the e-Learning module, I simply didn’t absorb the key messages it was attempting to deliver. It was more of a chore than a memorable learning experience.
After spending many months reading about various learning techniques, I came to the conclusion that information is absorbed well when it is memorable, and focused on a few key messages. Less is more.
This was the dawn of Education Arcade.
As a lover of indie games, animation and cyber security, I decided to mash my skill-sets together, and re-create those memorable learning experiences I had when I was 8 years old. Only this time I'd be helping people learn about good cyber security behaviours.
I am extremely proud of the work we’ve done so far and continue to look forward to helping others become more cyber-savvy.
