MIAMI - November 18, 2019 - ( Newswire.com )

??We are at the forefront of a new era. The eye-roll-inducing response from over-stimulated millennial students, when the mere suggestion of sitting through a lecture is mentioned, is what inspired authors Kevin Allen and Dr. Michael J. D. Sutton to pioneer a fun approach that takes their students from listening to learning by doing.

Co-Author Michael Sutton says,  "The time-honored method teaching isn’t disappearing, but now we require new tools to add stimulation, engagement and fun, to transform a boring lecture into a hotbed of enthusiasm and engagement.”

Allen and Sutton set out to combine their research and experience, using their knowledge of Emotional Intelligence Engagement (EIE) and Game-Based Learning (GBL) to design an approach that has had a great impact on their students and fellow educators. Their discoveries and lessons are outlined in their new book, Emotify! The Power of the Human Element in Game-Based Learning, Serious Games and Experiential Education, now available on Amazon.

The unlikely collaboration of two very different, yet equally passionate educators, brings a multi-faceted perspective to the reader from the quirky Professor, Dr. Michael J.D. Sutton, and the intuitive Ad Man, Kevin Allen.

"We must always remember that this is all a human game. The power of storytelling and emotional intelligence are the mighty tools of engagement everywhere. Our book takes static material and brings it to life with the student at the core of the experience." - says Co-Author and "Ad man" Kevin Allen?

Dr. Sutton established a reputation as a Game-Based Learning Innovator and Educator over his lengthy career in both the corporate world and higher education. He has successfully integrated serious games, simulations, and effective learning solutions into his problem-solving courses as a corporate trainer and instructor. For many decades, Dr. Sutton has made it his life's purpose to guide his readers and pupils into the "league of enlightenment" through the power of gaming.

Co Author, and "Ad Man" Kevin Allen is an expert in leading organizations to achieve their business goals. Allen champions the power of emotional intelligence, a practice he pioneered at the top of the world's largest advertising agencies, McCann-WorldGroup, Interpublic Group, and Lowe Worldwide. Named the Billion Dollar Man by his colleagues, he is probably best known for working with such brands as MasterCard, leading the development of the globally famous "Priceless" campaign. 

He is Founder and CEO of award-winning E.I. Games LLC, a GBL pioneer counting Ball State, The Forbes School, Google, Expedia and Oracle as clients. The story-based construct and Emotional Intelligence across a wide array of business topics like Leadership and Diversity have captivated thousands.

Readers of Emotify! The Power of the Human Element in Game-Based Learning, Serious Games and Experiential Education, will acquire enough knowledge and practical advice to launch their own game-based learning initiative through applying the Author's proven techniques. http://www.emotifybook.com
