Sharing my passion for narrative learning and games

I am writing this post tonight from my hotel in beautiful (but stormy) Wilmington, NC. It is here that I am both attending and presenting at the Global Learning Technology Conference on the campus of UNC Wilmington.

The Halls of Education at UNCW

Details, Details

Your ABCs

Front Row Seats

Being the first year of this now to be annual event, the population is relatively small, but very focused and dedicated to the application of learning technology to improve outcomes in education at all ages. There are participants from K-12 schools, Colleges and Universities, and my current favorite, corporate learning. The mix is fairly even and the topics range from LMS systems and online learning to games in education. 

Speaking of games in education (which I will also be tomorrow afternoon) the keynote presentation "Let the Games Begin" by Lucas Gillispie was absolutely awesome. The work he is doing with applying game theory to K-12 education is right on target. If you are unfamiliar with his work, please check it out at He provides free resources for all to learn more about this emerging model for education.

As for my presentation tomorrow, it is titled "Problem-Based Learning using Game Masters, Storytellers and Gamification." Feel free to click on this link to view and/or print the presentation and notes in its entirety.
