Gamification Focus of Sage Keynote Speech to AZ Department of Corrections Medical Meeting

Anthony Garcia, Sage ATLAS Research Group Creative Director, provided a Keynote Speech to the Department of Corrections (DoC) personnel at their Quarterly Medical Meeting in Nogales, AZ on 11 September 2014.

The presentation focused on Gamification, using Serious Games as a medium for training, and integration of Distance Learning tools for training enhancement.

Personnel in attendance included Nurses, Staff Members, and Education Specialists from multiple Correctional Facilities across AZ as well as State Audit personnel.

The concepts, while new to most attendees, were well received. Garcia's approach to customized software solutions vice forced hardware dependent integration sparked keen interest. Each of the three Medical Prototypes demonstrated were lauded as excellent approaches to training.

The presentation was received with enthusiasm by all in attendance.
