Parenting with Gamification - March 11th, 2015 in Palo Alto, CA
Did you know that praise may lead children to become less creative and motivated? Or did you know that fatherly roughhousing prepares children dealing with unexpected situation? And did you also know that even young babies are prone to teasing others?
In this science-based approach to playful parenting, workshop participants will learn through many examples and exercises how gamification can help parents, educators, and caretakers raise happier, more creative, and more empowered children. We will learn about the science behind raising children and what they tell about us. We well learn ways to make our children innovators, more disciplined, keep their engagement levels up, and valuable citizens. And we'll challenge many of the conventional wisdoms in child-rearing.

Gamification Design Patterns - Workshop + Books - March 10th, 2015 in Palo Alto, CA
In this workshop participants will learn a practical approach to implementing gamification. The workshop will cover four major areas:
Ad 1) Basics of Gamification covers the fundamentals and principles of gamification.
Ad 2) Gamification Design Phases are based on IDEO's Design Thinking methodology, but are adapted to the specifics of Gamification.
Ad 3) Gamification Design Patterns make it easier for gamification practitioners to quickly build compelling and effective gamification designs. Instead of selecting parts and assembling a design from scratch, participants will learn about half a dozen popular patterns including Progress, Social, or Race.
(This is like instead of selecting every tire, screw, light, or steering wheel to design and build a vehicle, buyers choose from vehicle patterns ranging from motorbikes, SUVs, convertibles, family van, sports car, and trucks.)
Ad 4) Gamification Technologies will cover available platforms and solutions. Participants will learn about free and paid solutions, which ones are available as hosted or on-premise installation, and which what the criterias are to select a platform, including the chosen Gamification Design Pattern.
Participants will also get all of Mario's Enterprise Gamification books, a value of $275+! Register and get the EARLY BIRD TICKET for $349. Register here.
