Today, Aaron talks with Dave about the use of gamification in learning and the differences between education/learning and training.
Please pardon the background noise as the two guys are by the pool while Aaron is on vacation at Disney.
Dr. Aaron Buchko is a professor of management in the Foster College of Business, Bradley University, teaching graduate and undergraduate courses in Planning and Strategy and graduate courses in Executive Development and Business Ethics.
The two guys have been very busy over the summer and take this opportunity to catch you up on what is going on at both GEM Supply and the Academy.
Joe Anacleto is the newest member of the GEM family, and as Bobby tells us, a specialist in restroom care. You can reach Joe at JAnacleto@gemsupply.net
At the time of this broadcast, Dave is in Ruston, LA getting ready to present the full Rock Star series to the Lincoln Parish School district after they saw the keynote session earlier in the year at the National School Plant Management conference.
He goes on to tell us that the University of Maryland will be hosting a two-day event in Baltimore next month.
Both remind you that the first round of the Rock Star Custodian nominations is over in just 60 more days and you should go towww.RockStarCustodian.com to nominate your frontline or supervisory Rock Star now.

Since it’s back to school time when the two guys get together again the conversation is going to be about Instant Hand Sanitizer. Pros and Cons….what do you think?
Dave Thompson is the Director of the Academy of Cleaning Excellence and host of this show.
Apparently, some podcasters have been wondering why we haven’t been on the air, so Dave is here to catch you up.
Clean Buildings Expo, you heard about it on the last podcast from Dan Weltin. Mark from Ashley Furniture in Mississippi was there and had the Academy bring the first session of the Rock Star Program to them at the plant. Dave talks a bit about it here.
Triple S had the national conference in Arizona this past month and the Academy is now a Value Added Vendor of education. During the week, Dave tells us that 20 distributors signed up to be regional campuses. I’d stay tuned as there is surely more information on that to come.
ISSA and Mark Warner were in the house, literally, they were at GEM Supply using the Academy classroom for their Supervisors Bootcamp.
The Academy will be on the road with the Rock Star program to the GAPPA conference next week plus a full week in Texas during the middle of June.
Question of the day from Dave.
Do you like email, text messaging or snail mail? Which way do you like your communication these days? Bobby and Dave have been talking about this and would like your feedback.
