3 reasons why eLearning is key to leadership training and development

3 reasons why eLearning is key to leadership training and development | |
The crisis is so real, in fact, that the World Economic Forum lists it as the third most important issue on its agenda. And employees are less likely to trust their management when leadership skills are lacking.

Leadership isn’t born. It’s a group of skill sets that can be taught and learned. But if leadership training and development takes place in a traditional classroom setting, it is likely to be ineffective.

Leadership skills include (but are far from limited to) vision, communication, empowerment, effective risk assessment and management, conflict resolution, and organization. And each leader combines those skill sets in ways that are unique to each and every demand on each and every individual faced with the challenges of leadership. And those challenges are unique to every circumstance faced by every organization.

According to a leading consultant McKinsey, “72 percent of the organizations are using social media for business networking and are benefited by it. The report also projects that organizations can improve their productivity by about 20-25% by enhancing social media communication and collaboration.

The five keys to successful change

The five keys to successful change | |

My second book, a followup to Stoking Your Innovation Bonfire, is in the copy editing process and will be coming out soon. While my first book helped people identify and remove barriers to innovation, my next book is designed to make the process of planning change efforts less overwhelming and more human.

The book will introduce a visual, collaborative Change Planning Toolkit™ designed to help get everyone literally all on the same page for change.

The toolkit begins by painting a different background for the landscape of organizational change. Here we introduce the first of more than fifty tools and frameworks comprising that make up the Change Planning Toolkit™.

Mobile Learning does not have to be a big investment

Mobile Learning does not have to be a big investment | |
Modern workers are tech savvy and love to use mobile devices. They are using these devices to consume vast amounts of content for their personal use (YouTube) and professional development (TED talks, Kahn University). For this reason, the L&D world is moving ever more toward mobile learning (m-learning) in efforts to keep the modern workforce engaged in corporate learning, but a recent study of m-learning in Australia and NZ (Skillsoft, 2015: see shows that we still have a long way to go before m-learning becomes the norm.

AI and Learning

AI and Learning | |
At the recent DevLearn, Donald Clark talked about AI in learning, and while I largely agreed with what he said, I had some thoughts and some quibbles. I discussed them with him, but I thought I’d record them here, not least as a basis for a further discussion.

Donald’s an interesting guy, very sharp and a voracious learner, and his posts are both insightful and inciteful (he doesn’t mince words ;). Having built and sold an elearning company, he’s now free to pursue what he believes and it’s currently in the power of technology to teach us.

As background, I was an AI groupie out of college, and have stayed current with most of what’s happened. And you should know a bit of the history of the rise of Intelligent Tutoring Systems, the problems with developing expert models, and current approaches like Knewton and Smart Sparrow. I haven’t been free to follow the latest developments as much as I’d like, but Donald gave a great overview.

[PDF] Students, Computers and Learning: Making the connection

[PDF] Students, Computers and Learning: Making the connection | |

Information and communication technology (ICT) has revolutionised virtually every aspect of our life and work. Students unable to navigate through a complex digital landscape will no longer be able to participate fully in the economic, social and cultural life around them. Those responsible for educating today’s “connected” learners are confronted with challenging issues, from information overload to plagiarism, from protecting children from online risks such as fraud, violations of privacy or online bullying to setting an adequate and appropriate media diet. We expect schools to educate our children to become critical consumers of Internet services and electronic media, helping them to make informed choices and avoid harmful behaviours. And we expect schools to raise awareness about the risks that children face on line and how to avoid them.

This report provides a first-of-its-kind internationally comparative analysis of the digital skills that students have acquired, and of the learning environments designed to develop these skills. This analysis shows that the reality in our schools lags considerably behind the promise of technology. In 2012, 96% of 15-year-old students in OECD countries reported that they have a computer at home, but only 72% reported that they use a desktop, laptop or tablet computer at school, and in some countries fewer than one in two students reported doing so. And even where computers are used in the classroom, their impact on student performance is mixed at best. Students who use computers moderately at school tend to have somewhat better learning outcomes than students who use computers rarely. But students who use computers very frequently at school do a lot worse in most learning outcomes, even after accounting for social background and student demographics.

The results also show no appreciable improvements in student achievement in reading, mathematics or science in the countries that had invested heavily in ICT for education. And perhaps the most disappointing finding of the report is that technology is of little help in bridging the skills divide between advantaged and disadvantaged students. Put simply, ensuring that every child attains a baseline level of proficiency in reading and mathematics seems to do more to create equal opportunities in a digital world than can be achieved by expanding or subsidising access to high-tech devices and services. Last but not least, most parents and teachers will not be surprised by the finding that students who spend more than six hours on line per weekday outside of school are particularly at risk of reporting that they feel lonely at school,and that they arrived late for school or skipped days of school in the two weeks prior to the PISA test.

One interpretation of all this is that building deep, conceptual understanding and higher-order thinking requires intensive teacher-student interactions, and technology sometimes distracts from this valuable human engagement. Another interpretation is that we have not yet become good enough at the kind of pedagogies that make the most of technology; that adding 21st-century technologies to 20th-century teaching practices will just dilute the effectiveness of teaching.

Breaking the Code: What motivates Adult Learners? | |
You have to persuade adult learners to rearrange their busy schedule and make time to take your eLearning courses. But it is easier said than done. Motivating adult learners can be quite a challenge unless you know what makes them tick and what compels them to prioritize and take action.

[TED] Los nuevos retos de la educación (César Bona)

Educar a las nuevas generaciones es una obligación de todos y en ésta tarea los niños han de ser los protagonistas de su propio aprendizaje. Todas las materias son importantes pero es necesario incorporar en el currículo escolar el hecho de educar en valores como el respeto, la tolerancia y enfatizar en la inteligencia emocional. Y es que tal y como nos recordó César, el factor humano (aspecto esencial para desarrollo como personas) es mucho más relevante que los varemos estandarizados de evaluación mediante calificaciones numéricas. No olvidemos que los niños son seres curiosos por naturaleza, debemos adquirir el hábito de escucharlos y dejarlos que se expresen difuminando la jerarquía niño- adulto/maestro y empezar a hablarles de tú a tú. Sólo de este modo aprendemos conjuntamente los unos de los otros. Ya nos lo advirtió César: “Una persona deja de aprender no porque se haga mayor, sino porque deja de tener curiosidad” Stay Curious!

Único finalista español entre los 50 mejores maestros del mundo para el Premio Nobel de la Educación. César ha escrito obras de teatro para enseñar a leer a niños de 10 años; se convirtió en alumno de cajón de un niño gitano para vencer al absentismo; hizo un película muda para unir a dos niños y sus familias que no se hablaban; un documental para que los niños respetaran y valoraran a los ancianos y creó una protectora virtual de animales dirigida por niños que ahora tiene miles de seguidores en todo el mundo. Ha recibido premios nacionales e internacionales por fomentar la creatividad, la innovación y la sostenibilidad en la educación y cree en una enseñanza más allá de los libros y las guías docentes. Una educación que empodere, que inspire y que a través de las emociones y las experiencias, saque lo mejor de los niños del futuro.

A formal request to change

A formal request to change | |

A Social model of organisational change is one that combines both formal and social elements: the formal being the organisational view and the social that of the community. It’s in the interplay between formal and social spaces that engagement occurs: engagement through involvement and co-creation, not simply hierarchical instruction. In this #WorkingOutLoud post, i’m just reflecting on the dynamics between both spaces, the formal and the social, and the mechanisms by which each expresses it’s opinion and control.

Innovation fosters Student-Centric Learning

Innovation fosters Student-Centric Learning | |
Sally Lindgren, director of technology and innovation for the Great Prairie Area Education Agency in Burlington, Iowa, says past educational reforms, including attempts to deploy technology, fell short because teachers never changed the way they were teaching.

“The reality was that teachers still stood in the front of the classroom and presented all the information to the students,” she says.

Lindgren says the Great Prairie Area Education Agency, which supports 39 school districts in Iowa as a resource for digital tools, developed its 21st-century classroom, or “Room 21C,” with educational change in mind.

7 neuromitos que intoxican la educación

7 neuromitos que intoxican la educación | |
En las últimas décadas, el interés por el cerebro ha ido creciendo y con él algunos neuromitos se han propagado como la espuma. El sector educativo se ha hecho eco de algunos de estos neuromitos y a menudo se recurre a ellos para justificar determinados métodos de aprendizaje que son ineficaces o bien, no están suficientemente probados. Por esa razón insisto en una idea que ya compartía en el post que dediqué a la famosa pirámide del aprendizaje:

The Answer Pad: Formative & Summative Assessment for 1:1 & BYOD classroom

The Answer Pad: Formative & Summative Assessment for 1:1 & BYOD classroom | |

The Answer Pad is an interesting educational platform for teachers. It combines two powerful functionalities: it is both a student response system and a grading solution for your quizzes. It is an ideal tool for engaging students in a flipped or blended learning classroom.

As a teacher, you can use Interactive to directly involve students in their learning by providing them with an outlet through which they can show what they know. Students-generated feedback is a great source of data to inform and guide your teaching and also makes you aware of areas that need more work.

As a grading tool, you can use The Answer Pad to transition from paper to digital assessment.’ Set up an electronic answer sheet for your paper test on-line, using any of the eight different question types. Students can also use a scratch pad to show their work. With a built-in, robust reporting system for item analysis, the Answer Pad offers reports by skill, by class, and by student. Teachers can view the scratch pad showing the student work. In addition, school and district implementations are available for aggregate reporting.’

Problem-Based Learning strategy in eLearning courses

Problem-Based Learning strategy in eLearning courses | |
Problem-based learning is learner-centered learning theory, where the learner learns through the experience of solving a problem. It helps the learner to develop logical thinking and enhance domain knowledge. It is a form of active learning where the learner is encouraged to construct his or her knowledge by dealing with real-life situations to solve. This type of learning makes the learner to develop active problem-solving skills, acquire essential motivation, exchange ideas and at the same time collaborate with others in order to arrive at a mutually beneficial solution.

En la reciente DevLearn, Donald Clark habló de AI en el aprendizaje, y si bien…..

…como telón de fondo, yo era una groupie AI salir de la universidad, y he estado actual con la mayor parte de lo que ha pasado. Debemos saber un poco de la historia de la subida de los Sistemas Inteligentes de Tutoría, los problemas con el desarrollo de modelos de expertos, y los enfoques actuales como Knewton y Smart Sparrow. No he tenido la libertad de seguir las últimas novedades tanto como me gustaría, pero Donald dio una gran visión.

Se refirió a los sistemas de estar a punto de los contenidos de análisis automático y el desarrollo de aprendizaje en torno a ella. Mostró un ejemplo, y creó preguntas caiga en una página sobre Las Vegas. También mostró cómo los sistemas pueden adaptarse individualmente al alumno, y discutió cómo podría ser capaz de proporcionar tutoría individual sin muchas limitaciones de los profesores (cognitiva sesgo, fatiga), y no sólo se puede personalizar, pero sí mejorar y escalar!

Education Technology: 2 ways education has dramatically changed since you went to school

Education Technology: 2 ways education has dramatically changed since you went to school | |
If, like me, you went to school in the 90s, your biggest challenge (besides getting a bf) may have been hastily trying to scribble notes on loose leaf paper while your teacher lectured and wrote on a chalkboard. Now that I’m all grown up and working with a client in the education technology niche though, I’m blown away by how far things have progressed.

Learning through the use of technologically advanced tools is called education technology. This covers an array of particular technological instruments, such as networking hardware, computers, media, TV, apps and the Internet. Utilizing these tools for education has become more popular than you realize.

Here are a few things that I have learned as a 40ish education technology marketer in 2015:

Messy Works: How to Apply Self-Organized Learning in the Classroom

Messy Works: How to Apply Self-Organized Learning in the Classroom | |
When a group of kids from a Delhi slum figured out how to navigate the Internet in English simply by playing with a computer for a few days, it was the beginning of a movement to harness the power of self-organized learning.

Sugata Mitra’s “Hole in the Wall” experiment has garnered a lot of attention since it first begun in 1999 and won a TED prize in 2013. It demonstrated that a group of students working together, motivated by a deep question and with access to a computer, could produce amazing results. But few self-organized learning environments exist in traditional education.

[SlideShare] Converting eLearning to mLearning

We are interested in moving to mLearning, but don’t know how.”

As an eLearning vendor, how often have you heard your clients say this, or as an organisation, have had this thought cross your mind?

Quite often than not, I bet!

With a dynamically evolving technology as the base, Mobile Learning involves careful consideration and detailed understanding of the technology itself, the learning need, target devices, amongst other factors.

While creating fresh content for mobile devices is a good approach to make the shift to mLearning, one of the relatively easier ways is to convert your existing (legacy) eLearning into mobile learning, especially when you have the eLearning programs in place. We had earlier published a blog, titled Converting eLearning to mLearning? 4 Steps to Set the Wheels in Motion on the same lines. Adding a dash of creativity to it and simplifying it further, we have created a presentation, titled Converting eLearning to mLearning.

Teachers as designers of technology enhance learning?

Teachers as designers of technology enhance learning? | |
Some colleagues and I are starting to wonder about what type of “digital knowledge” teachers might need. This is occurring in the context of a re-design of a Bachelor of Education. This particular post is a summary of reading and thinking about ideas outlined in Kirschner (2015) and related writings. Apparently Instructional Science 43(2) feature contributions discussing “teacher as a design professional”.

10 effective classroom management tips for every teacher

What’s the key factor that separates an effective teacher from an ineffective teacher? Certainly knowledge of the course’s subject matter is important, but let’s face facts—we all know teachers who know the subject they’re teaching inside out and are ineffective, and teachers who have problems answering fact-based questions but are highly regarded.

For some classes, particularly classes with high-achieving students who are very interested in learning and have a lot of incisive questions, subject matter mastery might be the key to being an effective teacher. However, most teachers have classes that include students of various intellectual abilities, temperaments, and curiosity levels. For those teachers, classroom management skills might be the most important criteria in determining their effectiveness.
