    We know that adding games or gamification to a learning experience helps the learner build knowledge and more importantly confidence, yet many organizations don’t know where to start.  They don't think they can use games in their learning experiences because they are expensive and take too long to build. Learning professionals can develop a gamification culture in their organization by understanding the difference between games, gamification, serious games, and simulations.

    Key Takeaways

    • Understand the difference between games, gamification, serious games, and simulations.
    • Recognize the process for selecting content and implement gaming into a learning experience.
    • Identify gaming techniques and how they related to traditional learning topics.

    Who Should Attend

    Learning leaders will want to gain an understanding of how to implement a gaming skill set in their team.

    Learning designers and developer who want to identify opportunities and create games where they can be used to improve performance.

    What’s in a Game?: Strategies for Meaningful Use of Digital Interactivity

    That which we call purposeful play to support learning objectives by any other name would smell as sweet. But what is involved in developing game-based strategies? And how can you ensure that you are using games in a meaningful way?

    In this interactive webinar, we will examine the relevance of engagement in web-based learning and consider game-based tenets as an approach to address learner engagement. We define meaningful games and address approaches to measure. The discussion will culminate in a proposed framework for designing engaging web-based courses that leverage techniques for digital interactivity and storytelling.

    After attending the session, you will be able to:

    • Interpret the relationship between engagement and digital interactivity.
    • Identify the role of digital interactivity and storytelling in meaningful games.
    • Utilize a framework for incorporating digital interactivity and storytelling in a game-based learning solution.

    Scrap Learning, the gap between training that is delivered and what is actually applied back on the job, is a critical issue for organizations – and for you! It not only wastes scarce organizational resources, it threatens your professional credibility.

    In this in-depth, highly interactive workshop you will:

    • Discover the impact scrap learning has on wasted organization resources and lost credibility with business executive stakeholders.
    • Examine the 3-phase, 9-step Predictive Learning Analytics™ methodology and the 6 benefits of using Predictive Learning Analytics (PLA).
    • Analyze how PLA can be used to identify participants who are most likely, at risk, and least likely to apply what they learned in a training program back on the job.
    • Examine how PLA can be used to identify managers who do a good and poor job of supporting learning
    • Analyze how to calculate the amount of scrap learning associated with a training program and how to identify and prioritize the obstacles preventing learners from applying what they learned
    • Discover how to validate the accuracy of your PLA algorithm using Level 2 and Level 3 evaluation data.
    • Examine various data charts you can use to report your PLA results and gain increased credibility with business executive stakeholders.
