Aprendizaje en el trabajo. No son cursos, son recursos.

Aprendizaje en el trabajo. No son cursos, son recursos. | |
Recursos para Aprender. Esa es la tendencia. Una combinación de elementos de diferente tipología y procedencia que se “mezclan” de manera ágil y flexible en función de las necesidades y preferencias de los alumnos. Y que son accesibles separadamente para su consulta, cuando es necesario.

En las organizaciones, son recursos que pueden utilizarse en distintos contextos pero que tienen un foco principal y clarísimo: facilitar el aprendizaje con un modelo práctico y social. Aprender a realizar las tareas concretas del día a día, a enfrentarse a los problemas y ser resolutivo. Aprender de la experiencia de otros que están recorriendo el mismo camino que tú, en tu organización o en otras. Esto no es fácil conseguirlo con “cursos”, estructuras formales que necesitan planificación, diseño, impartición… y tiempo.

The evolution of eLearning: A science geeks perspective

The evolution of eLearning: A science geeks perspective | |
If you’ve had a chance to read my last blog you may have guessed that I have a general dislike for most formal education. In many countries the way that we teach children is out-dated, ineffective and instils the idea that without good grades you won’t be able to succeed in life. Since grades are primarily based on how well you can memorise facts, something that’s become more and more unnecessary as information becomes more accessible, they actually have very little to say about a person’s skill or ability. It’s widely agreed that the current education model doesn’t work, unfortunately trying to pass any type of education reform in the current school systems is an almost impossible task. This factor alone gives eLearning an advantage that standard teaching models can’t hope to match.

Edtech and Elearning: Top 100 Influencers and Brands

Edtech and Elearning: Top 100 Influencers and Brands | |
A new report by New Media Consortium and the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative gives a five-year prediction for emerging edtech. Key findings include advancing cultures of change and innovation, with institutions adapting to a culture that embraces innovation and allows for more flexibility, creativity, and entrepreneurial thinking. The report also suggests there will be a growing focus on data-driven learning, measurement and assessment, with better tools for teaching, more targeting of at-risk students and more detailed student profiles. Another future trend identified in the report is development within Open Educational Resources (OER), with more instructional materials available for free, and being open in terms of ownership and usage rights.

Blended learning is another topic identified as a growth area, with students being given opportunities to learn in more flexible and alternative ways. Blended learning will provide easier delivery and access to learning materials, and provide alternatives to students who won’t be in the classroom every day. Classrooms will also evolve into spaces that encourage more collaborative interactions. Tools such as 3D printers, robotics, computers, laser cutting, and textiles will help contribute to these “makerspaces“.

Many students are already bringing their laptops and tablets to school, the model of Bring your own device (BYOD) is set to continue. Another trend identified in the report is the idea of a flipped classroom, which refers to “a model of learning that rearranges how time is spent both in and out of class, to shift the ownership of learning from the educators to the students.” Podcasts, videos and online textbooks help facilitate this model.

The incorporation of wearable technology in education is another area identified as a future trend; virtual reality devices are already being used to provide first-person perspectives in medical procedures, or to give virtual tours of campuses. Machine learning technologies can also be used as a tool that adapts to a student’s learning in real-time, providing personalized instruction and feedback. All of these tools will be synced to the web providing an “Internet of Things” (IoT) approach to learning, with teachers and students informed by crowdsourced, and location based information.

[Infographic] The typical Millennial Learner

[Infographic] The typical Millennial Learner | |
The Millennial generation or Generation Y is made up of people who were born between 1982 and 2000. They were born into technology and grew up tinkering with gadgets and video games. They prefer to express themselves in 140 characters instead of writing an email. They think and learn differently than the Baby Boomers. So it is no wonder that you have to revamp your training to catch their attention, hook them, and make them come back for more. Here are the characteristics of the typical millennial Learner:
anagn's curator insight, August 30, 9:37 AM

Sucede que la mayoría de los reclutadores y de los equipos de formación interna de las organizaciones pertenecen a la generación llamada "baby boomers". Mientras la fuerza laboral empieza a componerse de millenials. ¿cómo aprenden unos y de otras? Y lo más importante: ¿cómo tienen que aprender los unos de las otras y viceversa? ¿Qué nuevas formas de aprendizaje surgen de esta interacción?!

eLearning in the Cloud and slow Internet: Who’s to blame?

eLearning in the Cloud and slow Internet: Who’s to blame? | |

During 10 years of providing cloud based learning platforms I’ve often had to explain slow internet and what the “problem” is.

The “problem” is users of an online learning platform being unable to access their learning platform over the internet. There are also variations on the “problem”:

  • “It’s running slow”.
  • “It always slows down at lunchtime”.
  • “The site is running slow for me, but it’s okay for my colleagues”.

Essentially, “the problem” amounts to the same thing. Users of the learning platform are not enjoying their usual acceptable level of performance. When this happens, users will often turn to the learning platform supplier, assuming that because they can’t access the learning platform, it is “not working properly”.

This article explains why that’s not always the case and gives simple tips and checks you can perform.

"We don’t need No Education”

"We don’t need No Education” | |

Recently, I reviewed responses to surveys completed by ID professionals who are active on the Allen Interactions website. The surveys collected information from respondents about major challenges that interfere with doing their job well. Perhaps you were a contributor to one of these surveys. It shouldn’t surprise you that the most typical aggravations include:

  1. Intractable, content-centric SMEs.
  2. Short timelines.
  3. Stingy budgets.
  4. Working with antiquated and prolonged ADDIE-like processes.
  5. Influencing executives to consider the potential business impact of current best practices like agile and serious e-learning programs. 
  6. Check-the-box compliance training.

Trabajadores del Conocimiento & Trabajadores del Aprendizaje

Trabajadores del Conocimiento & Trabajadores del Aprendizaje | |
Peter Drucker acuñó el término “trabajador del conocimiento”, de nuevo en 1959 como una manera de describir los trabajadores que participaron en la resolución de problemas no rutinarios. Creo que esta es una de las razones por qué las organizaciones-han creído que la formación tiene que ver con los trabajadores del conocimiento “transferencia de conocimiento” – verter conocimiento en la cabeza de la gente, lo que “creemos” que hacemos ahora, pero nada mas lejos de la realidad.

How Storytelling can improve your eLearning courses

How Storytelling can improve your eLearning courses | |
You have to schedule meetings with the SME. You have to speak with the business executives to figure out the learning objectives. You have to know the target audience. It seems you have your hands full. Why should you bother to rack your brains and think of a story? Why would you need to tell a story in an eLearning course?

Stories hold enormous power over our minds and hearts for a reason. They are how we think, how we make sense of information, how we define ourselves, and how we persuade others. According to a recent article in Psychology Today, stories continue to hold power in this digital age because the human brain hasn't evolved as fast as technology and it's only through stories that we can connect to the various digital platforms and media messages out there today.

Stories can improve your eLearning courses, not only making then more instructionally effective but also more engaging.

Three techniques for teaching Digital Literacy

Three techniques for teaching Digital Literacy | |
Twenty-five years ago, the term “literacy” was synonymous with the printed word. Today, that definition has evolved and being literate necessitates more than simply interacting with text. We must be digitally literate, too.

Teachers have an even harder task; we must cultivate this ability to adapt to constantly changing mediascapes while simultaneously preserving students’ writing skills in their purest form. This may sound intimidating, but there are simple things you can do to help prepare students.

eLearning Tips: Creating content for novice learners

eLearning Tips: Creating content for novice learners | |
As eLearning professionals we want to take our students on a learning adventure where they come out on the other side brimming with knowledge, inspiration and staggering awe for their superhero-like trainer. Ok, maybe these goals might be a tad unrealistic. Even the best eLearning designers can sometimes drop the ball when it comes to training because we forget that what comes easily to us might not come easily to our students and maybe, just maybe we might even overestimate our students’ abilities and interest level.

In order to effectively train, we have to evaluate how we present information and make it easily accessible to both novice and expert learners. The trick is though; we can’t dumb down information to the point that it sounds condescending. Remember, at one point there was a time even you didn’t understand the techniques you are now training, keeping that in mind will help direct your training style.

15 common mistakes teachers make teaching with Technology

15 common mistakes teachers make teaching with Technology | |
The role of technology in learning isn’t entirely clear–or rather, is subjective.

While it clearly is able to provide access to peers, audiences, resources, and data, it also can be awkward, problematic, distracting, performing more strongly as a barrier to understand than anything else. Why this happens also isn’t clear, but there are some common patterns and missteps to look for while designing or evaluating a learning process.

If you are a Learning Architect (#xAPI)

If you are a Learning Architect (#xAPI) | |

If you are a learning architect, how will you design an ideal learning experience?

  • Leveraging ubiquitous technologies for learning opportunities anytime, anywhere => you need “Mobile Learning” or “Seamless Learning”
  • Learning-on-demand, Just-In-Time, and Just-For-Me => you need “Performance Support”
  • Learning is …a state of play, an experience of flow => you need “Gamification or Game-Based Learning”
  • Learning as conversations, connections and participations => you need “Connected Learning supported by Connectivism and Constructivism pedagogies”
  • Learners as leaders in their learning journey, they control what they want to do in open learning settings and get advices for the next steps when they need them. => you envision a “Personal Assistant for Learning”
  • Learners get different learning paths and remediations adapted to their interactions with the content => that’s so called “Adaptive Learning /Training”
  • Everyone has different learning style and habits, learning should be personalized and options should be abundant.

The future of learning spaces is open ended

The future of learning spaces is open ended | |

The spaces we inhabit have a profound effect on how we inhabit them. Space induces a particular way of feeling, of being. What are we saying to our children with we line them up in 5×8 rows facing the same direction toward a voice of authority? What do we say about desks that lock us in place, where the majority of movement within our gaze is eyes forward, eyes down? I remember my surprise when I walked into first grade for the very first time. The change from kindergarten to first grade was extreme. I looked at the arrangement of desks and thought, “what game is this?” It was a game I would play for the rest of my developing years. I was disappointed. I knew it could be better than this.

We look inside current learning spaces and look at the world; there is a big disconnect. It’s not reflective. We as a society have agreed by doctrine that our children will come together in a building and learn, and yet we allow our kids to be behind desks for a majority of their developing years. We evolve behind desks. Think of that! Students don’t need places to sit, listen and write. Instead, they need places to connect, explore, discover and relate. They need places of support. We spend over a decade being conditioned to receive and compete, imagine if space invoked us to support each other, everyday and in every way.

We need environments that help realize that within us there are unbounded treasures. We need environments that shine a light on our potential and provide opportunities to express ourselves.
