The Five Superpowers of Learning


A new breed of game-savvy, socially-networked people are entering your work force, with little patience for the traditional doldrums of one-way, eLearning and webinar dronathons. They want to be engaged, in control, and part of the storyline, with learning that focuses on doing, simulating, socializing, playing, sharing, and collaborating. How are you reaching out and energizing a dispersed organization of digital nomads? In this session, we’ll discuss five design principles of the digital age:

  1. Tell a story: Hollywood-style, character-rich, story-centered learning simulations are redefining learning-by-doing.
  2. Play a game: Game concepts such as points, levels, time pressure, and cut scenes make learning engaging.
  3. Make it social: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and similar company internal social networks are embedding learning in every-day work processes and connecting people with each other.
  4. Make it immersive: A new generation browser-based, high fidelity 3-D virtual worlds are energizing learning.
  5. Make it mobile: iPads and smart phones are changing the paradigm from employees coming to the classroom to the classroom coming to the employees.
