  3. 3. Key Topics to be Covered: Mobile Technology Adoption of Social Learning Tools Alignment with Corporate Objectives Use of Adaptive Learning Principles Ability to Measure Effectiveness Discussion will also include short and long term approaches to the following as they apply to the workplace: Virtual Reality Gamification Serious Games Augmented Reality Workplace Learning During this session we will discuss the best practices that companies should consider. This session will talk about planning, developing, implementing, and supporting the future of workplace learning to assist companies by making sure they do not end up behind the innovation curve.
  4. 4. The Future of Learning Is Here We have always struggled to envision the future, often superimposing new technology over our current views at a given period of time. The challenge of imagining the future of learning can seem daunting. However, snapshots already exist. We just need to look beyond current assumptions to identify some of the key tenets for the learning environments of the future. Key Tenet #1: Flexible, Customized Learning Key Tenet #2: Ubiquitous, Embedded, Invisible Technology Key Tenet #3: Ongoing Diagnostics and Feedback

  12. 12. Serious Games After using conventional E-Learning modules and classroom training, companies are finding that their employees are not retaining the knowledge. Daring to delve into the realm of gamified learning, some companies are looking for educational and entertaining tools for their employees or potential recruits. Through friendly competition, employees could use these tools for a few minutes per day while they learn how to approach relevant day-to-day tasks.

  14. 14. Motion Tracking – Recycle Roundup One company decided to teach learners how to sort recyclable items into the appropriate recycling bins using the LEAP Motion tracking device. Rather than just present the information to the learners, they wanted a solution that would also be immersive as well as fun. This Leap Motion game allows clients to see the possibilities of immersive training and how it is possible to create a fun and positive learning experience It was determined the best option was to create a serious game that utilized movement of the player’s hands based on the specifications of the LEAP Motion device The concept was fleshed out and the development was created by utilizing innovative instructional design, the Unity 3D Gaming engine, and creative game mechanics which would transform learning into fun The game uses a time constraint to help the player focus on quickly differentiating recyclable items from non-recyclable items and also on sorting those recyclable items

  17. 17. Virtual Touch Screens The "Interactive Tabletop" concept uses depth sensors and motion tracking to know when objects are placed on the table and even bring storybooks to life. The project looks like a fully realized version of the augmented reality coffee table. Although its seems limited, this kind of technology has huge potential. It's not hard to imagine devices like this as an educational tool to turn novels or history books into animated interactive lessons — or just as a fun way to play games in any environment

  20. 20. Virtual Reality Virtual reality technology holds enormous potential to change the future for a number of fields, from medicine, business, architecture to manufacturing In business, a variety of industries are benefiting from VR. Carmakers are creating safer vehicles, architects are constructing stronger buildings and even travel agencies are using it to simplify vacation planning. Help Paraplegics Regain Body Functions Patients wearing VR headsets tasked to move through a stadium as a soccer player were able to regain some brain functions associated with moving their legs. Of the eight patients tested, each regained some control and four were upgraded from full paraplegics to partial paraplegics. Improve Architecture Virtual reality will benefit key players in the construction space such as architects and designers. The tool allows a user to virtually inhabit spaces in three dimensions. Computer-generated images will replace hand-drawn renderings — ultimately reducing time spent reworking layouts and drawings, effectively reducing costs and increasing safety. Train Medical Students Virtual reality provides medical and dental students a safe and controlled environment to practice surgeries and procedures, allowing them to make mistakes without having any impact on an actual patient, and prepare for any unexpected situations.

  32. 32. Mobile Hardware Lenovo has recently introduced a new bendable screen that snaps around the wrist like an old-school slap bracelet. A flexible screen needs equally flexible parts, including the battery and the motherboard, which need to fold and unfold along with it. It's an innovative idea, but that's all it is for now. This product has not yet been released.
