4 Simple Ways to “Gamify” Your Rapid e-Learning

4 Simple Ways to “Gamify” Your Rapid e-Learning | Tips for Fast Learning | Scoop.it
Learn 4 easy ways to apply gamification techniques to your rapid e-Learning courses.

Via SHIFT eLearning
Sri's insight:

Gamifying the learning process has some compelling benefits. But at the same time one must guard against making it appear frivolous and thus put off the learners or mislead them into believing the learning itself is not really very valuable.

Has anybody done a study on the lasting impact of gamified learning?

How Storytelling Can Enhance Any Learning Experience

How Storytelling Can Enhance Any Learning Experience | Tips for Fast Learning | Scoop.it

Researchers are discovering just how powerful an effect a good story can have on the brain, and not just in terms of entertainment. A memorable yarn can also help us retain important information, both in casual and formal learning settings.

 


Via Nik Peachey
Sri's insight:

Story telling was a great tool in the past. It has been rediscovered now.
The reason why story telling  succeeds is it provides a context for the learning. It helps to answer the key questions - how and why - that often are ignored in other methods of instructions. Story telling, I wd say, is human-centered instruction design.

Innovative Bootstrapping. How Sam Calagione & Dogfish Head Brewery changed an industry with a $5 toy. - Venture Blend - The Best Business Tools for Entrepreneurs

Innovative Bootstrapping. How Sam Calagione & Dogfish Head Brewery changed an industry with a $5 toy. - Venture Blend - The Best Business Tools for Entrepreneurs | Tips for Fast Learning | Scoop.it
By the early 2000’s, Dogfish Head had built a reputation for creating innovative and over-the-top beers. While large breweries were still churning out light and rather flavorless beers, Dogfish Head was creating beers using everything from apricot, to chicory, chocolate, peppers, pumpkin, and various spices. While the large breweries were buying rice and hops in bulk, Sam Calagione was traveling the world seeking out exotic spices and other ingredients to include in his beers.

10 Steps To Effective Listening

10 Steps To Effective Listening | Tips for Fast Learning | Scoop.it

In today’s high-tech, high-speed, high-stress world, communication is more important then ever, yet we seem to devote less and less time to really listening to one another. Genuine listening has become a rare gift—the gift of time. It helps build relationships, solve problems, ensure understanding, resolve conflicts, and improve accuracy. At work, effective listening means fewer errors and less wasted time. At home, it helps develop resourceful, self-reliant kids who can solve their own problems. Listening builds friendships and careers. It saves money and marriages.

Stefano Principato's curator insight, April 25, 2014 6:13 AM
  1. Face the speaker and maintain eye contact.
  2. Be attentive, but relaxed.
  3. Keep an open mind.
  4. Listen to the words and try to picture what the speaker is saying.
  5. Don’t interrupt and don’t impose your “solutions.
  6. Wait for the speaker to pause to ask clarifying questions.
  7. Ask questions only to ensure understanding.
  8. Try to feel what the speaker is feeling.
  9. Give the speaker regular feedback.
  10. Pay attention to what isn’t said—to nonverbal cues.









Tonya Smith Saylor's curator insight, May 7, 10:20 PM
