Conferences often get me buzzing with too many things to think about, and I’m grateful for the long train ride home to catch my breath and process my thoughts.

What Can You Learn from This Guy?
MARCH 15, 2016
I was watching a blab (a video chat tool) about the upcoming FocusOn Learning, a new event from the eLearning Guild. Video (as opposed to animation or images or graphics, and similar to photos) is about showing how things happen in situ (I note that this is my distinction, and they may well include animation in their definition of video, caveat emptor ). This conference combines their previous mLearnCon and Performance Support Symposium with the addition of video. Listening to folks talk about the conference led me to ponder the connection, and something struck me.

Ruth Clark Claims “Games Don’t Teach”
MAY 8, 2012
Before I continue, I want to say that I enjoyed her book, eLearning and the Science of Instruction , and I have found some of the research there valuable. In the discussion on this post in the eLearning Guild’s LinkedIn group, Cathy Moore made this observation: I don’t have access to the full study cited in Ruth’s article, but based on the description of the games in the abstract, (1) they don’t simulate a realistic situation that’s relevant to the learners and (2) they teach academic info that learners aren’t expected to apply in real life.
