Learning Experience Day
21st March 2022
The Learning Experience day is designed to showcase what works (or doesn’t!) in gamification of learning, to discover the latest thinking and thus lead to designing better and more effective gamified learning and education programmes.
Our amazing list of sessions for 2022 Learning Experience Day [Online]:
EVENT RUNS FROM 10AM TO 5PM
All times are uTC (UK time)

INTRO BY THE CHAIR - ROB ALVAREZ
Rob is an expert, international speaker and advocate for the use of gamification, especially in education and learning. He is the host of Professor Game podcast and works and teaches at IE Business School, ranked #1 and #2 by the Financial Times (among others) for its Global MBA over the past five years.
At Professor Game he interviews successful practitioners of games, gamification and game thinking that bring the best of their experiences to get ideas, insights and inspiration to make learning experiences meaningful. At IE University he is Associate Director of Executive Education Online and IE Publishing, leading relations with professors and universities as well as firms and organizations from the private and public sectors. The online learning experiences are created and distributed for IE University as well as allies and clients, including management simulations, interactive case studies and gamified learning experiences. As an adjunct professor, he focuses both on Gamification and Operations topics.

Real-time switching between gamification and simulation modes for effective experiential learning
The session will discuss, with live demonstration, how real-time switching between gamification and simulation modes enable effective, experiential learning for the students and learners. Experiential learning is done by doing, experimenting, interacting and exploring, where students apply the knowledge and concepts learnt in class towards real-life situations and issues. While gamification is excellent in inspiring students to learn and explore, simulation is excellent for teaching specific situations. For example, to get the students to understand the concepts of logistics, it’s best to start with a logistics game. When the students have questions about a specific concept, such as auto-replenishment, the teacher can switch to simulation mode and run an auto-replenishment simulation to clarify the concept. In MonsoonSIM, a teacher can switch between gamification and simulation in real-time, transforming the teaching and learning of business concepts. Teachers can now become facilitators and motivators, defining and configuring the “business world” where learners operate in, whilst learners themselves can learn in an immersive, virtual, "business world" where they interact, transact and compete with robots and other learners.
Founder and President of MonsoonSIM, a Business Simulation and Experiential Learning platform. He believes in creating a level playing field for all education institutions through innovative transformations, hence why his team has created a unique "horizontal experiential learning model".
He is an entrepreneur with 30 years of enterprise software development experience. In 2002, he was awarded Entrepreneur of the Year by Yayasan Prestasi Indonesia. He has held executive positions for global software vendors (SAP, IFS, Unisys), in Los Angeles, Jakarta, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore.
He is a speaker at international conferences on Business Simulation and Experiential Learning, including Accounting and Data Analytics Conference 2019, by American Accounting Association; Simulations In Accounting and Finance Education Conference, by Aston University, UK; Balancing AI and Experience Conference 2021, by Woxsen University; 27th American Association of Teaching and Curriculum Annual Conference, Albuquerque; 6th Annual Learning with Innovative Technology 2021, by SUNY Empire State College.

The power of constraints in a gamified learning environment
In March 2020 an independent scout association in LATAM had the challenge to organize a scavenger hunt with their members. With the pandemic hitting, the strategy changed from a one-day simultaneous event in several cities to a 30 day online challenge.
With approximately 300 participants, we built a 30 day adventure that required them to solve a quiz, upload evidence of work and earn achievements. We added a leaderboard as it became a competition measured by 2 metrics, Experience points and Coins.
During the first days, players had unlimited attempts for free at the quizzes, which led to up to 77 random tries, but, by using constraints, we managed to increase accuracy from 0.7% to 99%.
We wanted the players to feel the difficulty rising, like running out of air as you climb a mountain. The results are amazing and the method is simple.
Bernardo Letayf is an international gamification expert with almost 10 years in the industry. Formerly a teacher, created BLUERABBIT to gamify education and remove the stress and attention from grades. Today, the award winning platform has successfully gamified over 12,000 players in all continents and is currently being used to gamify corporate training programs, universities and schools.
