Social Media as a Lever, Gamification and Gamified Learning at eLCC 2015 #eLearningCO

I had the honor of presenting at last week’s eLearning Consortium of Colorado‘s (eLCC) annual conference in Breckenridge, Colorado. Several attendees stayed an extra night due to the typical eLCC conference weather and I was relieved to make it home on time.

Robbie Melton was one of the keynote speakers and she was very entertaining and brought a ton of cool gadgets to share during her presentation. I hosted a roundtable about using social media in education which I’ve posted below along with Sherri Jones’ slideshare presentation on gamification and gamified learning. Enjoy!

Here is Sherry’s presentation which I missed because it was difficult to choose among all of the wonderful presentations. And I knew I could count on Sherry to post it online.

Unfortunately the conference hashtag (#eLCC2015) was overtaken by an European Lung Cancer Conference so we didn’t do much tweeting during the conference. I’m encouraging people to use #eLearningCO instead but it is a little late. We would have had more robust backchannel conversations and sharing if we would have promoted the new hashtag sooner – oh well.

Kudos to the eLCC conference committee for another excellent conference!
