I have recently been working with organizations on how the introduction of gamification into their training and development strategy plans for employee skill development.  The interesting thing as well is the application of the concepts to both hard and soft skills, that allow for returning to the results in the future as well as updating of skills as the individual progresses.

"GlassLab, a educational game studio, has released an extensivereport on "the formative assessment value of simulation games," using SimCityEDU, as a case study. (We reviewed the game here.) It dives deeply into how psychometrics can be used to "create probability models that connect students' performance in particular game situations to their skills, knowledge, identities, and value." The full report is a dense 160 pages; casual GBL enthusiasts should be happy with the short summary (PDF)."

The Learning Factor's curator insight, October 2, 2013 9:06 PM

Rise and shine! Morning time just became your new best friend. Love it or hate it, utilising the morning hours before work may be the key to a successful, and healthy, lifestyle.That’s right, early rising is a common trait found in many CEOs, government officials, and other influential people.


Margaret Thatcher was up every day at 5 a.m.; Frank Lloyd Wright at 4 am and Robert Iger, the CEO of Disney wakes at 4:30am just to name a few. I know what you’re thinking – you do your best work at night. Not so fast. According to Inc. Magazine, morning people have been found to be more proactive and more productive. In addition, the health benefits for those with a life before work go on and on. Let’s explore 5 of the things successful people do before 8 am.

Admittedly, I only do 1 out of these 5 -- perhaps this is an opportunity for self-improvement.  Useful habits to strive for.
