Beekast launches its new interactive “Association” activity for engaging and memorable training

We are pleased to announce the release of our brand new “Association” activity: an engaging and interactive way to reinforce learners’ knowledge and memory! Whether you are a trainer, teacher, or facilitator, this activity will revolutionize your teaching approach by providing a fun way to enhance learning. 

How does it work? 

The “Association” activity (also called “matching”) allows you to create interactive quizzes where learners have to match items together. For example, you can provide a question such as “Match the countries with their capitals” and the corresponding items such as “Belgium” and “Brussels“. Learners must then connect the correct items to answer the question. This activity allows for matching pictures, text, or both, and can be used in many ways to enhance learning.

Why you’ll love this activity:

Engage your learners: Interactive activities are more engaging for learners than static presentations. In fact, the more relevant and fun your activities are, the more likely learners are to pay attention to the content.

Help learners memorize: Picture and text matching activities can help learners remember information more easily. By connecting concepts to each other, participants can better understand the information and remember it for longer amounts of time. 

Encourage creativity: By using pictures, words or both, facilitators/participants can be encouraged to be more creative in their approach to learning. This can stimulate their imagination and allow them to think in more original ways. 

Renew training formats: We’ve added the Association to Beekast’s already wide range of activities so that you can offer diverse activities to stimulate learner engagement and meet specific training needs!
