Acteon believes that when we connect with what matters to people, they are more engaged, which leads to behaviour change and improved performance. Acteon wanted to test this and devised an experiment in the form of a game – Hexit.
Those who visited the Acteon stand at this summer's Festival of Work or Learning Techologies Summer Forum might have been one of the hundreds of people who played the game Hexit.
Acteon is now able to reveal what Hexit was really all about.
Acteon believes that when we connect with what matters to people, they are more engaged, which leads to behaviour change and improved performance.
They wanted to test this, so they devised an experiment in the form of a game – Hexit. Before playing the game, people were given information which provided motivation, understanding, or both.
Acteon then analysed the results to see if there was a pattern to prove their theory...
... and there was. The results showed that by connecting with what matters to learners, their behaviour changed and this led to an improvement in their performance.
