Make a different choice, get a different outcome: Participants experience all the benefits of a live-simulation approach: they practice key skills, produce deliverables, and attend role-play meetings. Only now with the Dynamic Scene Adapter™ (DSA), what comes next in the storyline depends on their decisions and actions.
Socratic Arts has long been a leading developer of learning simulations. Now, thanks to Socratic Arts' deep expertise in both instructional design and computer science, we are pleased to offer our latest simulation innovation: The Scene-Adaptive Simulation.
In Scene Adaptive Simulations, participants are placed in teams and challenged to perform tasks that are consistent with their workplace responsibilities. After each simulation, or "scene," participants are asked to make key decisions, and either enter their answers directly into the online interface or use those decisions to complete a deliverable or prepare for a meeting. The deliverable can be submitted for review via the online interface.
Our innovative scene management system then reacts accordingly to these decisions, revealing their consequences over the remainder of the simulation. Whether those consequences are positive or negative, participants will gain a great deal of insight into the workplace while simultaneously practicing soft-skills such as meeting facilitation and conflict resolution through periodic role-plays tied to the central storyline.
A Web-based interface functions as participants' virtual inbox, containing:
During each phase of the simulation, participants:
In addition to serving as mentors during work sessions and leading reflective debriefs, coaches:
At the end of each phase of the simulation, the program's computer-based rules engine processes input from participants and coaches and generates a new "scene" based on that input.
Here's how it works:
Simulations with Scene-Adaptation are ideal for improving performance in situations calling for trade-off based decision making, where decisions can have both positive and negative impacts.
By continuously adjusting the story to user input, the Scene-Adaptive Simulation allows participants to:
As a result, participants become better able to identify and confront complicated, multi-faceted situations on the job.
