Presented by Anders Gronstedt, Ph.D.

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 disruptive learning:

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 connectingpeople with each other.
4. Make it immersive: A new generation browser-based, high fidelity 3-D virtual simulations are energizing learning.
5. Make it mobile: Podcasting and mobile and location based apps are changing the paradigm from employees coming to the class room to the class room coming to the employees.

About the presenter: Anders Gronstedt, Ph.D. (anders@gronstedtgroup.com) is the president of the Gronstedt Group, which helps global companies like Coldwell Banker, Dell, HP, Jamba Juice, Volvo Cars, Ericsson, Eli Lilly and United Healthcare improve performance with innovative learning approaches.
