This July, Triad headed out to Manasas, VA for the yearly Serious Play Conference where Triad Interactive and Hats & Ladders co-founder Dr. Scott Brewster and world renowned EdTech business guru Mitch Weisburgh chatted about the importance of piloting when developing training or learning tools. A big topic of conversation was ESSA’s Levels of Evidence, which was designed to offer frameworks for piloting new training or education interventions. Although we used a PowerPoint to guide us, we encouraged those in the room to interject and ask questions as they arose. [Always making things interactive, of course.] Topics included: The importance of pilots, planning and implementing pilots, and how to have a successful pilot. The conversation included a mix of topics, but was mostly centered around serious games and digital interventions developed either for corporations, higher education, or K-12. If interested, hit us up for a copy of the presentation.
