Limited Capacity seats available

The Agile Apocalypse has already happened. Agile workshops from Boston to Bangalore have been overrun by Agile Zombies whose brains exploded from too much Powerpoint. 
Fortunately, there is a ray of hope. A small band of Agilists have discovered a more humane way to teach. Games, simulations, and interactive exercises revive the brains of Powerpoint Zombies - leading to better learning that sticks.
Join us in this session to discover the "neurological why" behind effective agile games and "how" to use it to design even more effective games & workshops.  Leave with new ideas and strategies to put into action with your next group.
Learning Outcomes:
  • List at least 3 benefits of teaching with agile games
  • List at least 4 aspects of brain theory and how each impacts learning & game design
  • List the 4 types of memory and what is needed for something new to make it to "long term" memory
  • Create a concrete action plan to put workshop strategies into action
