Redesign PlayTest — Ready to Play

April 25, 2007

You are Cordially Invited

to PlayTest

the second iterative redesign of SElearninggames

 

Working Draft Scrn ShtThe redesigned SElearninggames wraps recognizable rules of game play around wiki and and blog tools to get us started making the elearning game together. Rounds and moves of game activities enable us to discover our common questions and common answers about nonprofit earned income venture profitability.

Our common questions and our common answers are the “meat & potatoes” elearning game content. Day-to-day, social entrepreneurs face operational and management questions that require balance between mission and money objectives. By sharing our questions, we can discover the key questions we have in common. We share our answers – we discover our common answers.

The relationship between our common questions and our common answers are the learning game “rules of play.” These rules of play arise straight out of our collective experience — when we see that ‘when you do “X”, then “Y” happens.’ The rules of play are the strategic meta-pattern solutions to our profitability problems.

Our first Question is about our Questions!

What is the key question balancing mission/money that YOU know nonprofit social entrepreneurs are asking about day-to-day operations, management, or feasibility of an earned income venture?

So – the answers to our first question are questions.

We are integrating a tool that enables us to generate and rate our questions. The top three questions will be popped back into the tool to generate and rate our answers. We can use this blog to discuss, refine, flesh out our questions/answers, problems/solutions. We use the wiki as the long-term repository of what we are discovering — creating the “paper & pencil” version of our elearning game design.

Come on over and play

Actually – you can see I tied btwn Joker and Riddler. The first time I took the quiz, Riddler came out on top. In fact, first time I took the superhero quiz, I came out “Superman”! (probably cuz I don’t fight with girls 🙂 )

This is fascinating for me. Here in Columbus, Ohio, we have this “40 under 40″ award event, honoring young moving and shaking entrepreneurs. The 2006 theme was superpower. Each honoree was ‘profiled” based on what superpowers they would most like to have.

Overwhelmingly, the most desired superpowers revolved around power over TIME to get things done: power to make more time in a day; power to slow or stop time; power to be in two places at once; power to go places instantly.

I believe Web2.0 tools can help us achieve superpower and accomplish great good in 2007.

What SuperHero will YOU be in 2007?
