Training Technology Test Kitchen


Technology Test KitchenThe Training Technology Test Kitchen is designed as a makerspace approach for sharing innovative tools, new media and approaches to integrating technology into online and instructor-led training design, development and delivery. This open and collaborative environment provides opportunities for individual or guided hands-on exploration.

The Training Technology Test Kitchen includes stations where participants are guided by Master Chefs who are available to talk about design, discuss “recipes” (quick how-to guides), use apps, brainstorm strategies, explore new media (hardware and software), and provide 1:1, hands-on sharing with technologies.

Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices (laptop, tablet, smart phone) and visit the Training Technology Test Kitchen area to learn, explore and share knowledge within a lab environment. Approaches focus on designer, developer, facilitator and participant applications, and include multiple platform and device applications.

Come join us for our chef demonstrations throughout the conference in Booth #107 on the Expo Floor. Hear from the experts, download the recipes and start cooking!

Check out all of the Training Technology Test Kitchen scheduled demos ...  and remember you can stop by any time for advice, to try apps and gadgets and to meet other participants!
