Gadgets, Games and Gizmos Presentation.

A list of "Gamer" traits we'll be discussing at the workshop.

Looking forward to speaking with everyone at the Central Iowa ASTD group on “Gadgets, Games, and Gizmos for Learning” on Friday, April 3rd.

At the workshop, we will discuss how to design learning events to leverage MP3 players, video games and other technologies common in the consumer marketplace and have some playing some fun learning and playing games ourselves. We'll also discuss instruction design techniques that work with blogs and wikis and even set up some Twitter accounts.

In the meantime, check out the Gadgets, Games and Gizmos web site for some fun games and information on the topic we'll be discussing. I hope to see you there.

Also, if you have any questions or ideas concerning the topic and workshop, please leave a comment.

Our Company blocks many social networking sites. What do others do, and how do we make the case to bring Web 2.0 tools into the workplace.
