September 07th, 2007 | Category: Education, Employment, Jobs, Second Life Voice

What: Gronstedt Group “Train for Success”

When: Thu Sep 13 12pm - Thu Sep 13 1pm

Where: Wolpertinger

Description: Web 2.0 Powered Communications: Transforming frontline performance with Second Life, pod casting and simulations

Thursdays 9.00-10.00 AM SLT (noon-1.00 PM EDT).

A completely new breed of game-savvy and socially-networked employees is entering the workforce, with little patience for the traditional doldrums of workplace communications. They want to be engaged, in control, and part of the storyline. Learn how leading companies like IBM, Ericsson, Dell, Nike and EMC are turbo-charging workplace performance with learning programs that focus on doing, simulating, socializing, playing, sharing, and collaborating.

- Redefine and energize meetings with the sprawling, vibrant 3D virtual worlds of Second Life.

- Turn the morning commute into a learning experience with fast-paced, radio-style Podcast audio feeds.

- Help people learn by doing with game-based simulators.

The session is led by Dr. Anders Gronstedt, president of the Gronstedt Group and author of recent Harvard Business Review and T+D Magazine articles on the topic.

We’ll be Second Life voice. You need to turn voice on by going to Edit > Preferences > Voice Chat and check the “Enable Voice” box. To turn your voice microphone on, press the “Talk” button on the Voice tab in the right bottom corner of the Viewer.
