Matrix

Ask any CEO about the importance of learning in the organization and the answer will be: it is nothing less than great. Ask what the learning strategy is, and you will easily see that it is more or less like a fire department procedure – always ready to get up, light up the sirens and carry out an intervention with as little damage as possible.

Learnnovators

70:20:10 has shone a spotlight on the limits of formal learning. In contrast, social and experiential learning continue to be veritable goldmines of productivity, placing learners at the centre of their story and demanding a major shift from Learning & Development professionals.

Learnnovators

Then, as man evolved to the agrarian stage, around 12,000 years ago, he learned to domesticate a few animals and, alongside, grow crops. So we know that game based learning and gamification are not new. They are also defined by rules, skills, strategies and the elements of chance. With so many types of games and sports, there should be no dearth of ideas to gamify the learning of a subject in educational and business settings.
