[Infographic] 3 phases of Learning Strategy

[Infographic] 3 phases of Learning Strategy | digital divide information | Scoop.it
A ‘Learning Process’, involves acquiring knowledge and skill by study, practice, education and experience. In traditional classroom training, learners are involved in group projects, exercises, scenarios, case studies etc., that facilitate the learning process. In an e-learning course, these experiences have to be created online to facilitate effective knowledge transfer.

Each learner learns differently. What is exciting to one may not be so to another. Online courses have to strike a balance to ensure that they have something for every learner. Un-inspiring online courses may not receive the participation from learners as desired. It is very essential that the learner exerts the willingness to learn as non-participation hampers learning.

For the purpose, a learner-centric approach needs to be adopted to achieve the learning objectives. Learner centric approach broadly defines the methods of teaching in the way that is understood by the learner keeping in mind his competency levels. This is done by connecting with him at physical, emotional and intellectual levels during the learning process. This knowledge plays an important role when designing online courses. Let’s see more about this in the following infographic.

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"You don’t have to be born with math skills; solving problems is a matter of studying and motivation.

That may not seem like such a surprise, but it’s become easy to say ‘I just can’t do math.’ While some element of math achievement may be linked to natural inborn intelligence, when it comes to developing skills during high school, motivation and math study habits are much more important than IQ, according to a new study.

“It’s not how smart we are; it’s how motivated we are and how effectively we study that determines growth in math achievement over time,” says Kou Murayama..."

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

The ease in which the teacher is able to share enthusiasm is key as well.

Terri Goldson's curator insight, February 1, 2014 3:21 PM

Unfortunately the intelligence quotient has always been the standard measure used within education and beyond, that is said to determine our ability to learn. We know through common observation, that premise is not always an indicator of success. Other very important factors play a role in everyone’s ability to navigate through life.  Factors such as motivation, determination, perseverance and other intangibles are important influences. Tapping into those essential elements will make learning more meaningful for all learners.  Knowledge IS Power!

Motivation is important not only in math but in every part of work

Mousumi Saha Kumar's curator insight, June 6, 2015 12:14 PM

I completely agree..motivation is what we need. Telling you children 'whatever happens, you don't have to give up. Take you time, feel relaxed  and Keep trying... Nothing in hurry' can change everything.

The key to driving long term motivation and engagement among your employee base is an understanding of the motivation factors that drive individual employees. The motivation factors, and how they are played out are individual and situational. The infographic below, produced by IDG Research Services, is based on research conducted by Motivation Factor and analyzed by Boston Research Group. It reveals some interesting insights into the motivation factors for men and women and a new angle from which to consider the gender gap.

It's typically a bird's eye view, looking at the big picture. I fully agree on the continuous blurring effect of local development and globalization. Thank you for enriching the discussion
