ASTD ICE learning game design workshop resources

Three stars indicates you solved the problem with as few steps as possible. The post ASTD ICE learning game design workshop resources appeared first on.

Seven 2017 Learning Trends: Novel or Norm?

Bottom-Line Performance

I went back and found a 1998 ATD (then ASTD) State of the Industry report. Early Electronic Performance Support Systems and intranets were the predecessors of modern help systems such as Lynda.com, YouTube, Wikipedia, or Google as well as collaboration, information sharing, and communication tools such as SharePoint, Slack, Basecamp, and Skype plus networking tools such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or Twitter.

What are you reading for eLearning insight?

Integrated Learnings

Take a moment to browse the online bookstores of the International Society for Performance Improvement ( ISPI ) or the American Society for Training and Development ( ASTD ), and you’ll likely find a year’s worth of reading ideas. ASTD’s Training + Development magazine and ISPI’s Performance Improvement Journal are both examples worth taking a peek at. You might also be interested in our page on Facebook or Twitter feed. By Shelley A. Gable.

ADDIE isn't dead; how can it be?

Integrated Learnings

But if a learning project starts and stops here, like is tempting for some timelines, then problems are likely to ensue. And it's interesting here locally that the March and April ISPI Atlanta and ASTD Atlanta chapter meetings both focus on learning measurement. You might also be interested in our page on Facebook or Twitter feed. By Jay Lambert. There has been a lot of discussion, and an infamous article or two, in our field about the death of the ADDIE model.

Learner Engagement – Are Games the Answer?

Association eLearning

If you read industry journals like “T&D” from ASTD or Associations Now, you’ll see that engagement is hot. And wrapping a game around that won’t fix the problem. They don’t necessarily need a certificate, a Facebook badge or status update. Share this on Facebook. Everyone is talking about increasing engagement, and many are turning to gamification, social learning networks, and anything else they think will work to increase learner engagement.

Paul Adams summed the essential problem up nicely in “ Stop talking about “social ”.

Motivating The Instructional Designer

Problem-solving is a motivating task. Your problem is how to provide an engaging learning experience that turns information into knowledge that gets transferred to real world situations. Check out many of the groups on LinkedIn and Facebook as well as professional organizations like The eLearning Guild and ASTD. Share this on Facebook. Perhaps it hits you when you’re writing a storyboard to teach a poorly designed and uninspiring software program.

Clark Quinn – Crystal Balling with Learnnovators

Clark: I’m a strong believer in social constructivist pedagogies, e.g. problem-based and service learning, whereby a curriculum is activity, not content. People worry about tools, security, screen size, and more, yet there are solutions to all these problems. A related problem is doing what we’ve always done.

The Future Of Learning Design

The eLearning Coach

Karl: The biggest problem is that in the learning field we sometimes get seduced by the technology and forget the underlying learning need and, even more importantly, the underlying business need. Karl: A recent (2008) ASTD/Institute for Corporate Productivity (i4cp) study revealed that more than 70 percent of the knowledge that employees acquire comes from informal learning experiences but that 78% of the companies allocate less than 10% of their budget for informal learning.
