Description: Gamification is one of the most overused buzz-words in the L&D market today. Learn proven techniques, dos and don’ts from a proven leader in gamification: Trivie, Inc. the former #1 trivia game in the app store.
Speaker: Lindsey Putterman is the Sales Director at Trivie, Inc. Trivie is focussed on two key interconnected business issues. We help employees remember training, and we give companies unprecedented insight into their training effectiveness. In doing so, we help companies better engage their employees to learn and retain information better, making smarter companies that have higher revenue, more efficient training organizations, and superior employee satisfaction. Established by nearly 100 years of research, retrieval practice is a simple learning technique that is easy to implement, with lasting results. It means exactly what it is. Practicing retrieval of learning (or training) from your memory. Through this act of retrieval, or micro-tests, our memory is strengthened, and forgetting is less likely to occur. Retrieval practice is a proven and powerful strategy for improving training performance without more money, class, or training time.
Retrieval practice encourages flexible understanding, improving higher order thinking skills and transfer of knowledge so employees can do their job better. When adding retrieval practice to a training program, the practice should be spaced, interleaved, and varied. By re-introducing a concept based upon earlier training, but in a slightly different way, fortifies the ability to recall knowledge and put into action.
With Trivie, trivia games are spaced at certain intervals based upon topics and concepts that have been taught. The spacing is recommended at 3, 5, 10, 21 days post-training, and each quiz takes no more than 8 minutes. For more information, please visit their website http://trivie.com

According to a survey of Chief Learning Officer Business Intelligence Board, a majority (59 percent) of CLOs say their outlook for 2018 is more optimistic than 2017, with 29 percent saying their outlook is the same and 11 percent less optimistic.
That optimism translates to an anticipated increase in cash in 2018. Only 14 percent of survey respondents expect a decrease in spending and about one-third (32 percent) say their spending will stay about the same.
Where will those increased dollars go? The highest priorities are learning strategy and content delivery, with 56 percent and 48 percent respectively saying those are either essential or high priority spending categories.
According to CLO Business Intelligence Board data, the top three areas of learning technology spending are e-learning, analytics and instructor-led delivery. Despite the emergence of powerful new technology and tools like MOOCs, video-based microlearning and AI-fueled learning apps, e-learning remains the industry’s largest technology spend.
We are all watching for learning technologies that can streamline our learning management systems, increase employee engagement, and enhance training. What learning trends will take hold and make an impact this year?
In this session, we will discuss the emerging learning technology trends for 2018. What’s hot? What’s not? What are we all going to be talking about this year?
