    • Talk about the research
    • Talk about the differences between game design and instructional design
    • Talk about some of the tools
    • Talk about some design challenges
    • Talk about the organizational challenges of integrating games into a corporate curriculum
    • Oh, and play some games…
    • This is not generational
    • This is not happening without a broader context
    • This is NOT about technology
    • This challenges a lot of our thinking about design
    • Surveyed over 1,000 eLearning Guild members
    • Representing 320 organizations
    • Immersive Learning Simulations Work: Over 93% of Guild members who have created an ILS report that their efforts produce results that are either somewhat or much better than other forms of rich-skill practice.
    • Members are Reporting a Good ROI: Of the Guild members who have weighed in on this, more than 76% indicate they have received either a modest or a very good return on investment.
    • Guild Members Still Have a Problem with the Term “Game”: Over 80% of Guild members have a problem with the term “Serious Game,” and 77% totally or somewhat agree with the statement “Games are great; it’s the name that’s a problem.”
    • Guild Members Believe that ILSs are More Expensive to Develop than they Really are: When we ask Guild members to indicate what they think an ILS will cost, and we compare it with what Guild members who have created an ILS tell us they cost, we see that the actual costs, on average, are quite a bit less than the anticipated cost.
    • Guild Members Plan to do a Lot More: 70% of Guild members plan to do more simulations and scenarios, 48% plan to do more mini-games, and 36% plan to do more serious games and/or Immersive Learning Simulations.
    • Median and Average Costs Per Learner: The median cost per learner for an ILS is $102.08, and the average cost is $281.51.
    • “ Newer work, however, argues that people primarily think and learn through experiences that have had, not through abstract calculations and generalizations.”
      • James Paul Gee
    • “ A virtue of gaming that is sometimes overlooked by those seeking grander goals…is its unparalleled advantages in training and educational programs. A game can easily be made fascinating enough to put over the dullest facts. To sit down and play through a a game is to be convinced as by no argument, however persuasively presented.”
    • Gaming as a Technique of Analysis
    • Mood & Sprecht 1954, RAND
    • “ Play is the free space of movement within a more rigid structure.”
      • Salen and Zimmerman
    • “ We are passing from the Cartesian cogito – I think, therefore I am - to cogitamus – we think, therefore we are.”
      • Pierre Levy
    • 600,000 people working for nearly 4 months
    • “ This is really beautiful. In order for any of us to move forward WE ALL have to move forward.”
    • -I Love Bees player
    • “ Playing video games is a kind of literacy. Not the literacy that helps us read books or write term papers, but the kind of literacy that helps us make or critique the systems we live …When we learn to play games with an eye toward uncovering their procedural rhetorics, we learn to ask questions about the models such games present.”

    • Based on Catalog Course Learning Objectives
      • Scores calculated by rating each learning objective into each of the 10 games, then aggregating a course level score
    • What did I miss?
