    "Kids today grow up immersed in a world of digital technology. Information is now freely available to everyone. It's powerful. Digital technology can get information, store information, do calculations and connect people in new ways. Digital technology can do so many amazing things for the learning process, but it can't be human."

New era of Workplace Learning | Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies - 0 views

  • 1 – Encourage and support individuals’ and teams’ self-sufficiency to address their own learning and performance problems.
  • So here are 5 ways that L&D can become involved:
  • 2 – Help develop autonomous workers
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • 3 – Provide performance consulting services, where individuals and teams need help in addressing their own learning and performance problems
  • 4 – Rethink the use of learning tools and system
  • 5 – Help to develop an open, enabling culture for working and learning
  • It is clear that formal training is not going disappear overnight, but it is also becoming apparent that we are at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the way that both learning and working is happening in organisations. This should not be seen as a threat to the L&D profession, but as an opportunity to evolve the profession to take on the new challenges it offers. The first step on the path will be to become immersed in the new social media tools that are underpinning this change. Social Learning is not something you just talk or read about; it’s something you do!

The Top Seven Trends in Workplace Learning - 43 views

  • Trainers and facilitators need to remember these numbers: 90, 20, 8, 6. 90 minutes is the ideal chunk of time for participants can learn and understand 20 minutes is how long participants can listen and retain information 8 minutes is the length of time you can talk for before before they stop listening. We are trained to focus for just eight minutes due to decades of TV watching, where ad breaks occur approximately every eight to ten minutes. 6 is the ideal number of times to present information to make sure a learner remembers the content.
  • the challenge for facilitators is to keep things changing so that learners’ RAS keep firing so they stay alert to the learning
  • short attention span
  • ...12 more annotations...
  • It’s essential that trainers and facilitators keep learning themselves, to acquire new tools that will help them keep ensuring the training sticks!
  • And if you’ve been ignoring social media, now’s the time to reconsider because it’s clearly here to stay.
  • Blended learning is about mixing up face-to-face learning with webinars, blogging, emails, forums, video, online learning and social media.
  • trainers must move away from doing things in the same old way, must reach out to learners in new ways, personalise their learning campaigns, and help people connect to each other around issues they care about!
  • From planning phase to project end, things have to change – become familiar with new styles of presenting using multimedia, and carefully choose visuals to tell your story!
  • are you trapped in DDD – Dinosaur design and development?
  • Activity Based Curriculum Design
  • 70% of learning happens on the job 20% of learning happens through coaching and mentoring 10% of learning happens in training room and formal learning
  • BCF principle – better cheaper faster
  • no more plan-plan-do, its plan-do plan-do plan-do
  • Get used to bigger groups
  • Our community must start the shift by preparing learners for this new way of learning!

Workplace Learning Today by Brandon Hall Research - Served Fresh Daily - 15 views

    I wonder what the demographic for this data is? I looked all over, and even downloaded the pdf report from Experian Simmons, but I couldn't find any data on the population surveyed. I find the data in this report in conflict with data from Pearson survey (http://www.slideshare.net/PearsonLearningSolutions/pearson-socialmediasurvey2010) that surveyed just higher education. I am guessing Experian is surveying a much larger population, and as such, is giving us skewed information? I wonder if we will ever know?
