What will learning look like in the future?

What will learning look like in the future? | Learning Group | Scoop.it

It may be in a constant state of change, but Duncan Brown and James Cory-Wright's comprehensive two-part feature makes some well-reasoned predictions about the future of learning. 

 

Let’s assume first that we’re talking about technology and second, about learning in the workplace, in which case it’s not really about ‘what will learning look like in the future?’ it’s more about what the 'learners' of the future might look like. Or, even more to the point, what might their appetite for and attitude towards learning be and should we even be referring to it as 'learning' in the first place?

6 Hacks for Learning Almost Anything

6 Hacks for Learning Almost Anything | Learning Group | Scoop.it

I love to learn. It's not always easy or painless. In fact, sometimes the process of learning makes me feel stupid and incompetent. Learning a new language or new technology can really make me feel that way.

 

However, I find the embarrassment and humility is well worth the benefits of getting smarter. Even at 50, I find there is no shortage of helpful things to learn. Some may be old like historical perspective, and some may be new like trend-spotting. Truthfully I am an information and process junkie who will continue learning until the day I die.

 

As a learning addict, I am always looking for tips and tricks to increase the volume of learning and more importantly my information retention. So here, along with my own insight, are some of the best teachers from Inc. sharing their wisdom on how best to boost your learning capabilities.

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly

Why Good Professional Development Is Like Learning How To Fly | Learning Group | Scoop.it

Imagine if we taught pilots to fly without ever letting them in a cockpit. Or gave them the keys to a commercial airplane without the required hours—or years—of hands on training and practice. Sure, we’d show them plenty of PowerPoint presentations and make them sit through a few seminars on the theory and physics of flight, but then we’d slap on a graduation cap and let them take off into the big blue sky. Not only would it likely be ineffective, it would be borderline criminal. Yet when it comes to professional development for classroom teachers, that’s almost exactly what we do.

In this article, learning and training are somehow interchangeable. Learning is a human process which involves imagining what the meaning is in what is being learned. Training is a checklist process used in industrial settings where we go through the prescribed steps. The two are not the same thing, Having said this, good learning should help us fly and take off in new and adventurous ways. @ivon_ehd1
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, September 10, 2014 4:25 PM

PD is vital for teacher growth and sustainability yet it is often undervalued and often is not focused on what individual teachers need but, instead, on generic ideas and concepts or on "feel good" presentations about topics that are nebulous and non-specific like using technology or implementing reading programs. A shift is needed to move PD towards a growth mindset that focuses on how individual teachers can improve their teaching by beginning where they are as a teacher and sharing their ideas and growth with other teachers. It's not about presentations, even by "real teachers in real classrooms" but about change for individual teachers through support and collaboration of other teachers who also have a growth mindset.

Soft skills need analysis

Soft skills need analysis | Learning Group | Scoop.it

Soft skills, the oft-maligned gentler cousin of technical skills is emerging from the wings to take their rightful place on centre stage. The business advantages of soft skills in the workplace are now widely asserted; the difference between adequate and outstanding performance, the contributor to the majority of professional success, the key to successful application of technical skills and knowledge. Add to this the understanding that people can hone their soft skills through training rather than acquiescing to their inbuilt allotment, and it is easy to see why employees and employers alike are clamouring for a front row seat to soft skills’ performance. So now to the thorny issue - who gets the coveted seats? Perhaps it comes down to who is most in need. But how exactly do we ascertain these needs and what should we be looking for?

A thoughtful exploration of work/life balance. Rest Matters.

 

(From the article): The research is clear: beyond ~40–50 hours per week, the marginal returns from additional work decrease rapidly and quickly become negative. We have also demonstrated that though you can get more output for a few weeks during “crunch time” you still ultimately pay for it later when people inevitably need to recover. If you try to sustain crunch time for longer than that, you are merely creating the illusion of increased velocity. This is true at multiple levels of abstraction: the hours worked per week, the number of consecutive minutes of focus vs. rest time in a given session, and the amount of vacation days you take in a year.


Rest matters.

Don't Fail Your Employees: Why Professional Development Training Is Critical

Don't Fail Your Employees:  Why Professional Development Training Is Critical | Learning Group | Scoop.it

Although many factors contribute to a negative employee culture, including poor management, lack of advancement opportunity, low pay, and other factors, there is another strong correlation: how well people are trained to do their jobs. It turns out, if people feel well-prepared and well-equipped to succeed in their roles, that feeling improves their morale.

 

The problem? Companies select and hire people, but then underinvest in or significantly underestimate-;the amount of professional development training necessary to help employees develop their personal skills and exhibit the organization’s desired behaviors. The impact can be felt in two major ways:

Facilitation, and how it can add value

Facilitation, and how it can add value | Learning Group | Scoop.it
What is facilitation?

The word facilitation is derived from the Latin ‘facile’ which, simply translated, means ‘to make easy’.  A facilitator is therefore someone who makes something easy for others.  So how is facilitation different from other professional services that might also make something easier, such as consultancy, training or mediation?  And how is facilitation different from other group leadership roles, such as chairing?  Clarity of definition can help to manage expectations on the sides of the client, the group and the facilitator, and so achieve better outcomes.
