  • 16. New Instructional Approaches are Needed
  • 17. Gamification
  • 18. Gamification Lots of Hype
  • 19. Gartner Group predicts by 2015,  40 percent  of Global 1000 organizations will use  gamification as the primary mechanism to  transform business operations.
  • 20. Gartner Group predicts that by 2014, 80  percent of current gamified applications  will fail to meet business objectives,  primarily due to poor design.
  • 21. Let’s Play Fact or Fishy…
  • 22. Rules • A statement is presented – If “true” indicate: FactX – If “false” indicate: FishyX • Text Response: Standard Texting Fees  Apply! But you have  UNLIMITED TEXTING Take out  your text‐ machines
  • 23. How To Vote via Texting FACT01 FACT02 FISHY01 TIPS 1. Polleverywhere has no access to your phone number 2. Capitalization doesn’t matter, but spaces and spelling do FACT01
  • 24. Room is Divided in Half teama teamb
  • 25. “Games” and “Gamification” are the same thing. Is that Fact or Fishy?
  • 26. What is this “game” stuff? Gamification is the use of gaming elements integrated into a training program aligned with training and/or business goals to promote change in behavior Game-based Learning is the use of a game to teach knowledge, skills and abilities to learners using a self-contained space. Simulation Learning is a realistic, controlledrisk environment where learners can practice specific behaviors and experience the impacts of their decisions.
  • 27. What is this “game” stuff? • Gamification is to Learning Game as: – Part is to Whole – Piece is to Puzzle – Slice is to Pie – Steering Wheel is to Car • Gamification uses elements of games but is not a game in-and-of itself.
  • 28. What is this “game” stuff? Gamification + Simulation = Learning Game
  • 29. Gamification Elements that Aid Learning 1. Story 2. Challenge 3. Mystery 4. Characters/Avatar 5. Challenge 6. Levels 7. Feedback 8. Replayability 9. Freedom to Fail 10.Asethetics 11.Time 12.Rewards

  • 31. Elements of Games 1. Reward Structures 2. Feedback 3. Story 4. Challenge
  • 32. Adding points, badges and leaderboard to any training makes it awesome! Is that Fact or Fishy?
  • 33. Fishy… if it was that easy…this would be the most engaging  game in the world.
  • 34. 20% increase in profile completion.
  • 35. Use coins, points and rewards to provide feedback on  performance, updates on progress and level of  correctness.  Kapp, K. M. (2012) The Gamification of Learning and Instruction. New York: Pfeiffer. Chapter Four. Pages 89-98.
  • 36. The value, or size, of an anticipated reward influences  the motivational signal sent to the brain only within  the contexts of the reward system. Howard-Jones. P.A., & Demetriou, S. (2008, September 11). Uncertainty and engagement with learning games. Instructional Science, 37, 519-536.
  • 37. Receiving a PREDICTABLE reward  releases one shot of dopamine. Howard-Jones. P.A., & Demetriou, S. (2008, September 11). Uncertainty and engagement with learning games. Instructional Science, 37, 519-536.
  • 38. Receiving an UNPREDICTABLE reward  releases two shots of dopamine.  Yeah, me! Howard-Jones. P.A., & Demetriou, S. (2008, September 11). Uncertainty and engagement with learning games. Instructional Science, 37, 519-536.
  • 39. What can you do? Intelligently add game elements to instruction. Use points, rewards and badges to convey meaning…not simply completion.
  • 40. Feedback
  • 41. Provide specific comments   about errors and suggestions  for improvement.  Encourages learners to focus  their attention thoughtfully on  the task rather than on simply  getting the right  answer. Shute, V. J., Ventura, M., Bauer, M. I., & Zapata‐Rivera, D. (2009). Melding the power of serious games and  embedded assessment to monitor and foster learning: Flow and grow. In U. Ritterfeld, M. J. Cody, & P.  Vorderer (Eds.), Serious Games: Mechanisms and Effects. Philadelphia, PA: Routledge/LEA. 295‐321.
  • 42. Games like The Sims provide feedback on  many dimensions which provide  opportunities to consider tradeoffs and  higher level cognitive thinking. 
  • 43. Leaderboards provide  opportunities for players to  receive feedback about their  performance as compared to  others.  Comparative and  relative feedback
  • 44. What can you do? Use feedback to inform learners of errors in thinking and to focus them on the task they are learning.
  • 45. Learners remember clinical facts better… When presented as bulleted list rather than presented as a story. Is that Fact or Fishy?
  • 46. Researchers have found that the  human brain has a natural affinity for  narrative construction. Yep, People tend to remember facts  more accurately if they encounter  them in a story rather than in a list. And they rate legal arguments as more  convincing when built into narrative  tales rather than on legal precedent. Carey, B. (2007) this is Your Life (and How You Tell it). The New York Times. Melanie Green  http://www.unc.edu/~mcgreen/research.html. Chapter 2 “The Gamification of Learning and  Instruction. 
  • 47. Story Elements 1. Characters 2. Plot (something has to happen). 3. Tension 4. Resolution 5. Conclusion
  • 48. NikePlus Stats for Karl
  • 49. What can you do? Use meaningful stories. Provide the context for the learning.
  • 50. One way to engage learners is to… Present them with a difficult challenge. Is that Fact or Fishy?
  • 51. Fact. Provide a challenge Jones, B., Valdez, G., Norakowski, J., & Rasmussen, C. (1994). Designing learning and technology for educational reform. North Central Regional Educational Laboratory. [Online]. Available: http://www.ncrtec.org/capacity/profile/profwww.htm and Schlechty, P. C. (1997). Inventing better schools: An action plan for educational reform. San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass
  • 52. Re-design the Instruction to Start with a Challenge
  • 53. Sales Training • Course Objectives – Adhere to the proper policy for providing information to physicians – Understand what is permissible to share with the doctor and what is not – Identify off-label sales practices
  • 54. It is your first day on the job as a sales representative and you have just witnessed a rival sales representative providing off-label information to a physician you are going to see in five minutes. What is the first thing you should do?
  • 55. What can you do? Give your learners the “Koboshyi Maru” equivalent.
  • 56. “Koboshyi Maru” is a no win, difficult situation designed to teach “thinking.”
  • 57. Putting it All Together
  • 58. ExactTarget is a global marketing organization focused  on digital marketing tools – email, mobile, and web  and was recently purchased by Salesforce.com.  ExactTarget is a leading cloud marketing platform  used by more than 6,000 companies including Coca‐ Cola, Gap and Nike.
  • 59. Introducing a new product, MobileConnect and  wanted to bring the sales force up‐to‐speed on the  features and functionality of the product.
  • 60. VENDOR http://www.theknowledgeguru.com/
  • 61. Player Results “I can’t tell you how many people are coming to me wanting another  game solution.”  “The repetition of the different paths helped me retain the information.” “I’m a pretty competitive person so challenging myself to get one of the  top scores added a layer of fun to learning about the MobileConnect  product.” “The game was a fun way to learn about MobileConnect. I enjoyed the  scenario‐type questions, which put it all into context.”
  • 62. Business Results Average contract value 2x higher than for previous mobile product. First call resolution ($35 a call/average) is up 45%. Of all the launches done in the previous two years prior to  MobileConnect, the sales team built the quickest pipeline for this  product.
  • 63. Business Results Average contract value 2x higher than for previous mobile product. First call resolution ($35 a call/average) is up 45%. Of all the launches done in the previous two years prior to  MobileConnect, the sales team built the quickest pipeline for this  product. Larsen DP, Butler AC, Roediger HL 3rd. Repeated testing improves long‐term retention relative to repeated study: a randomized  controlled  trial. Med Educ 43: 1174–1181, 2009.

  • 65. A study using a randomized control group conducted a  trial between Aug 10, 2009, and Nov 30, 2012, at ten  sites in southeast India with over 500 subjects. Working Indian men (aged 35—55 years) with impaired  glucose tolerance were randomly assigned to either a  mobile phone messaging intervention or standard care.  Ramachandran, A.  et. al. Effectiveness of mobile phone messaging in prevention of type 2 diabetes by lifestyle modification in men in  India: a prospective, parallel‐group, randomised controlled trial The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, Early Online Publication, 11  September 2013 doi:10.1016/S2213‐8587(13)70067‐6
  • 66. “Use stairs instead of  an Elevator” “Avoid snacks while  watching TV;  you may  overeat. “ Ramachandran, A., et. al.., Effectiveness of mobile phone messaging in prevention of type 2 diabetes by lifestyle modification in men in  India: a prospective, parallel‐group, randomised controlled trial The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology, Early Online Publication, 11  September 2013 doi:10.1016/S2213‐8587(13)70067‐6

  • 68. Covert Takeaway Challenge
  • 69. Covert Takeaways Once upon a time, there was a well  known doctor, Gee Ames. Dr. G.  Ames always told engaging stories  to her patients to encourage the  behavior of maintaining their  treatment plan because learning  needs to be engaging to change  behavior. It was highly effective and her patients were among the  most compliant in the hospital. She was also a teaching doctor and  taught interns. She was widely  regarded as the best instructor  within the hospital but she did not  always tell her interns the answer  to questions because she knows  that is ok for a learner to struggle. 
  • 70. She also really liked games. She played  Halo all the time. So she knew what made  games motivating.  One day her  colleagues wanted to create gamification  for examining X‐Rays.  They simply gave points for correctly  reading an X‐Ray.  Created a leaderboard  and handed out badges.  The wise doctor, Gee Ames,  informed her  colleagues that simply adding points,  badges and leaderboards does not make  learning effective. You need context,  feedback and challenge she chastised.
  • 71. Her wisdom prevailed and an  effective gamification solution was  put into place. As a result, she was  able to rise to the position of chief  medical officer in a large  healthcare organization.   Today, she helps thousands of  people through intelligent  gamification—so can you.
