Come by and share your thoughts and/or find out what the goal was, the tradeoffs faced, and the resulting decisions made.   Of course, I encourage you to attend my  workshop on elearning strategy and mythbusting session as well.  I’ll also be haunting the xAPI camp on the Tuesday.

#DevLearn 14 Reflections

Clark Quinn

This past week I was at the always great DevLearn conference, the biggest and arguably best yet. The expo reception was a success as well, and the various snack breaks suited the opportunity to mingle.  I kept missing the ice cream, but perhaps that’s for the best. I was pleased to have the biggest turnout yet for a workshop, and take the interest in elearning strategy as an indicator that the revolution is taking hold. If you want to get your mind around the forefront of learning technology, at least in the organizational space, DevLearn is the place to be.

So, I found an interesting inconsistency.  I had to submit my deck for my DevLearn workshop on Cognitive Science for Learning Design last week, but oddly, for every thing I was recommending I had a diagram, except for the notion of using models. This is ironic, since diagrams can be used to convey  models.  It bugged me, so I pondered. And I  like diagrams. meta-learning

In the learning game design workshop that Karl Kapp and I offer (the next one will be at DevLearn 2014 ), the very thing we do is to play some games. A lot of people want to design learning games, aka “serious games.” If you do not play games, you will find it very difficult to design a great game. You experience different core dynamics and decide how fun they are.
