Education VS Training

I wanted to write something short and sweet today, so I thought this would be a fun topic to tackle.  While this post is not related to games specifically, it is a question that has to be answered before really digging into to any education or training initiative.

One of the most common questions I am asked when presenting is the difference between education and training.  And the answer in my mind is very simple.  Sex.  Sex isn’t the answer to everything, so I relish the opportunity to use it as an example of something so unexpected.  Ask yourself this question:  Would you rather watch your 12 year old daughter/son (or 80 year old mother /father) take sex education or sex training?  See the difference now?  My work here is done.
