Escape Room & Gamification Labs

Gamification & Escape Room Learning Experiences!  This year, we are adding a Gamification LAB and a Escape Room LAB as Experiences at Learning 2017.  In both situations, our participants will have opportunities to create and experiment with "extreme" experiences as learning activity options:

Gamification & Escape Room Learning Experiences!  This year, we are adding a Gamification LAB and a Escape Room LAB as Experiences at Learning 2017.  In both situations, our participants will have opportunities to create and experiment with "extreme" experiences as learning activity options:

* Gamification LAB: In Orlando, a group of participants will discuss, design and sketch out a Learning App with gamification elements at the core.  Working with expert Karl Kapp and some of our 30 Under 30 Alumni, participants will imagine and frame out an engaging and cool app.  Then, overnight a group of techie colleagues in Shanghai China will create a working prototype of the app that can be shared with the several thousand Learning 2017 participants. Based on the feedback, the app will be improved and then refined again overnight for review at the last session.  And, the app will be placed in Open Source to be used by folks back at work.  My fantasy is to locate the China colleagues at the new Disney in Shanghai and have a 24x7 video link between our two Magic Learning Castles.

* Escape Room LAB:

 Last year, one of our highest impact activities was the Learning Escape Room, which was designed by participants to create a 30 minute intense engagement around a learning outcome.  We are "scaling" this for Learning 2017, once again led by our 30 Under 30 Alumni.  Participants will have an opportunity to be Producers of the Escape Room content and help assemble the challenges.  And, more folks will have a one hour experience in the Escape Room and processing how it might be applied to the world of learning.  In fact, several organizations leveraged the experience last year and have implemented Escape Rooms for leadership and other programs.
