Since I started in my new role as a Learning Technologies Manager for Bupa International I’ve facilitated a number of ‘Lunch and Learn’ sessions for my colleagues within the HR team around a number of learning technology related subjects.
To date these have been:
- ‘elearning….. discuss’ – a 2 hour sessions which helped people to see ‘e’learning as being more than just traditional, ‘click next’ SCORM objects
- ‘Getting Started with Mobile Learning’ – a 2 hour session which was essentially a dry run of my DevLearn 12 session
- ‘Welcome Aboard’ – a 2 hour session centering around the use of technology within the onboarding / induction process
The latest ‘Welcome Aboard’ session was facilitated as an Alternate Reality Game. In order to add the context in which the game was being unknowingly played I referred to some research that I heard about at DevLearn.
Only problem is that there was no such research at DevLearn – it was lie, a misdirection, a bluff, an economical use of the truth….
To help me with this bluff I created the animation below using Powtoon which I played during the early stages of the session/game after I had prattled on about the DevLearn research ‘discovery’
It’s a cracking piece of software; cheap, intuitive, a great trial period.
Why not give it a whirl and let us all know how you get on?
