Training is an event. Learning is a process. Technology supports both. Improving workplace performance is the goal.
Brent, great posting from the Guild Research and way to add evidence to the opinions. But if possible could you add a key to the colors to help make it even clearer.Thanks for the great info! The Guild to the rescue again.
Done deal, Karl. I updated the post.I also dove into the data a little more and found some other interesting correlations on gender and corporate v. Ed,Gov sectors.Brent
Thanks for posting this, Brent. Although you said the post was about me, I didn't anything in the research that talked about me directly :) The facts confirm for me what I've been thinking/observing...women aren't as immersed in games and gaming as men. As an industry, I think we need to be careful not to constantly refer to Gamers....
What I should have said was that your line of thought/questions kicked off the conversations. You were the catalyst for us to have this conversation. My $.02 is that woman do play a LOT of games, they just don't call themselves gamers. I think that's what you said too. But I also LOVES certain types of games AND overall do not think of myself as a gamer. I've always enjoyed fantasy adventure books, stories, movies, etc. which is why I'm drawn to WoW. But I actually play very little compared to most and don't even consider myself good at it or even a "player" for that matter. I am not a gamer but I am comfortable with games and enjoy them with my kids when I have the time.Its a fun topic...thanks for continuing the conversation :)
Perhaps being a "Gamer" is more of a lifestyle issue -- and it may be transitory. My guess is most parents of young children don't have time to be Gamers. So while you may have been a Gamer in your 20s, you may not have the time to be a gamer in your 30s (or whenever it is when you have kids -- that is, if you even choose to play the game of life that way). Or is being a Gamer just about how you look at the world and how you solve problems with that gamer-mentality?What would Karl Kapp say to that? Hmm?
