  1. 1. Immersive Learning Simulations<br /><ul><li>Rich skills practice
  2. 2. High motivation
  3. 3. Authentic learning
  4. 4. Safe failure
  5. 5. Deep learning
  6. 6. Precise measurement</li></ul>Performance Improvement<br />
  7. 7. Best form of rich skills practice<br /><ul><li> 93% of deployments showed better or much better results than other methods.
  8. 8. For complex knowledge, skill acquisition and procedure learning.

Motivation<br />100%<br />Learning Performance<br />Learning Experience<br />96%<br />92%<br />90%<br />0%<br />Engage and Motivate <br />Motivation necessary for learning improvement<br />** Rome game testing. Independent testing with 3,000 students over 3 weeks.<br />ILS scored higher than any other format on each metric.<br />
  11. 11. Authentic Learning<br />Realistic scenarios increase knowledge transfer<br />A progression of practice opportunitieshelps promote transfer, since learners are continually transferring their skills from one practice opportunity to the next.<br />The Mission Game provides learners with a practice experience that bears strong similarities to real-life this increases transfer and the likelihood that trainees will actually be able to apply their skills in real life.”<br />Beal, C., Johnson, W.L., Dabrowski, R., & Wu, S.

  12. 12. Safe failure<br />Error management critical for learning improvement* <br />ILS encourage error management<br />People can test scenarios, get real-time feedback, and review and evaluate both good performance and potentially catastrophic mistakes<br />* Keith N, Frese M.
