    • Consider…
    • The Plan • Understand the Problem (Use Case) • Look at Past Predictions. Met? • Analysis – speed boat, not SCUBA dive • Results of Analysis • Trends in Commercial Technologies and Gamification
    • Problem (NATO Use Case) Management Questions • What are trends in industry and gamification? • Have we met the predictions? • How do we know this? 2003 Small Biz… 2008 Predictions 2013 Now What
    • Predictions 1. Highly realistic scenarios would become affordable those outside military training 2. Training games would be become more realistic than those for entertainment 3. New types of training scenarios would drive new types of training technologies 4. Joint missions would drive interoperable solutions 5. End-user experience would command greater emphasis in development processes

    • Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA)
    • Singular Value Decomposition
    • Clustering
    • Topic “Gut Check” from Clusters
    • Topic Definition – People Power Topic ID: 1 Topic: Immersive Learning Environments for Education and Training Topic Keys: italy,genoa,immersive,information,university,bruzzone,fear,diptem,scorm,thurkettle,lms,april,plans,web,united,p rocedural,miss,busetta,belief Topic ID: 2 Topic: Assessing Pedagogical Effectiveness of Maritime Training Topic Keys: maritime,navy,things,data,people,domain,includes,noted,naval,threats,series,number,effects,platform,cmre,know ledge,team,large,case Topic ID: 5 Topic: Social Media Dimension of Gamification Topic Keys: gave,worlds,garcia,learners,aims,free,simulation,gamification,crowd,johnny,november,digital,cdr,social,traditio nal,technology,supervision,unlimited,coffee Topic ID: 6 Topic: Future of Commercially Available Games in Military Applications Topic Keys: mosbe,bluefor,dive,civilian,lto,big,test,actual,fit,subject,simon,sensurprys,summation,versus,programme,strategi es,back,belief,insurgency Topic ID: 8 Topic: Human Dimension of Serious Games Implementation Topic Keys:
    • Topics Overlaid on Cluster
    • Finding 1: Scenario realism continues to improve and shows an association with the level of discussion of social media and the human dimension during workshops Recommendation: Future events should strive to balance discussions on technological and human dimension topics by considering different use cases at each event.
    • Finding 2: Discussions focused on solving new requirements tend to lag the introduction of the topic by three workshop events. Recommendation: Workshop planners should use an outreach plan to align topic introduction with desired solution timeframe and assume an 18-month lead-time for a trend to emerge.
    • Finding 3: Discussions focused on user experience have emerged within the workshop reports and persist in current discourse Recommendation: Process topics seem a likely evolution from technology to people to process. Harness user experience discourse to highlight process-oriented games and training requirements.
    • Finding 4: Assessment of training effectiveness, return on investment, and time efficiencies recently emerged as a workshop topic and this will likely continue Recommendation: Assessment includes topics ranging from pedagogy to return on investment to time savings. Extend calls for papers on these topics for future workshops.
    • Qualitative Trends Technology Industry Government  Massive Open Online Course (MOOC)  Mobile Learning Technologies  Alternate Reality Games (ARG)  Networks and Architectures  Open Source or Proprietary  Understanding the Needs of Government eLearning  MOOCs as a Disrupting Technology  Standards for Gaming  Collaboration  Architecture for MOOCs  Augmented Reality and Virtual Worlds
    • Summary • Management questions on ROI • Predictions stated • Application of humanities approaches • Supported ROI and predictions
    • Consider… • Text Analysis combined with clustering can see the unseeable • Models may also support predictive analysis • All work done with open-source tools
