"We will transform the way we train people by giving real-time access via their smartphone, tablet or laptop to this 'gamification' concept to heighten and speed up learning and training at all levels."
That, according to technology forecaster Daniel Burrus, is one of the main points to ponder for the future of business and one of the big firework explosions in an amazing article we found on CNN about serious games and mobile learning. It’s a very exciting time for our industry, as the proliferation of gaming, the appreciation for mobile apps and all they can accomplish, and the ascendancy of technology in the workplace are all coming together and giving the collective business world an epiphany about what IS possible with the virtual world for the future of Business. And we’ve known it all along.
When major news players like CNN are able to cover our industry and report on practical insights and potentials, you know that a tipping point has been reached. It’s taken a bit of time – since the 1930s in Russia when a war game was adapted for their business practices according to the article – but we’re seeing interest and enthusiasm from both the education and economic worlds about the use of serious games and mobile applications for eLearning. People are experiencing the “light bulb” moment of insight that is needed for real transformation to occur.
A few of the sparkling “revelations” in the CNN article include:
