5 Ways technology can truly improve learning

5 Ways technology can truly improve learning | Training | Scoop.it

Trainers, bloggers and education pundits tend to use lots of catch phrases and buzz words to talk about the power of technology in education. The same people who throw out all of those generalities and prognostications are often the ones that don’t provide concrete examples. It’s easy to talk about the possibilities in theory, drop the microphone and walk away.

Why Management Training Is Crucial For a Leader's Success

Why Management Training Is Crucial For a Leader's Success | Training | Scoop.it
The need for professional development doesn’t stop the moment someone becomes a manager. In fact, you can make the argument that leaders — particularly those who are assuming managerial positions for the first time — need training more than other employees. This is why the field of management training is becoming more and more popular.

Soft skills need analysis

Soft skills need analysis | Training | 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?

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies

How Does the Brain Learn Best? Smart Studying Strategies | Training | Scoop.it
We can be tactical in our schooling. The traditional advice on learning has been to “study hard,” in a quiet place and with the same routine, yet that doesn’t say much about what to specifically do. But pupils today can change the way they study to exploit the brain’s quirky learning processes, using the strategies revealed by memory and learning research. While that science is still maturing, “it’s at a place now where it can give you a specific tactical plan,” Carey said. 

.

Students can tailor their preparation with techniques targeting different kinds of content or skills, and manage their schedule to optimize their time. “That’s a powerful thing, because we go through our whole lives never knowing that,” he said.

.

Ultimately, the value of these learning strategies isn’t just about earning better grades, Carey said. In the modern jungle of society, learning is still about surviving: For young people, it’s about sussing out what they’re good at, what rings their bell, and what they want to do with their lives. “It’s informing you of: Who am I? Where do I place my bets? Do I major in physics or do I major in architecture or design, or do I major in English? Do I belong here at all?” Carey said. Those are important decisions. “Being self-aware about what’s effective learning and how it happens, I think, gives you a real edge in making those choices.”

online4ed's curator insight, December 6, 2015 11:25 AM

As an online learner I can relate and always push to make learning meaningful and relevant, but also worry that DEEP learning isn't always as obvious to learners and there needs to be the patience and trust that it will build to more meaningful application.

How to Create Successful Training

How to Create Successful Training | Training | Scoop.it

I was chatting with someone recently who was complaining that the organization’s elearning courses weren’t successful. After some conversation, it turns out that the courses were mostly information-based courses. The organization did a great job pulling content together, but outside of the content (and some nice looking slides) there wasn’t much to the courses. We talked a bit more about what it takes for a training course to be successful.
Successful Training Defines Success
There are different reasons why organizations create elearning courses. And with that, the measure of success various. Many courses have no performance expectations tied to their elearning courses. They’re mostly information that needs to be shared for one reason or another. And often the learner has no control over whether or not to take the course because they’re mandatory (and usually not relevant or applicable to the learner).

Using an LMS to Onboard Your New Hires More Effectively, Efficiently

Onboarding new employees can be time consuming, difficult, and inefficient. And, for a number of reasons–it’s often ineffective. If you’ve done it before, you already know this.

You can onboard new employees more quickly, efficiently, and effectively by using a learning management system (LMS). An LMS is a software application that companies can use to import, create, assign, deliver, and track training. You can use an LMS to deliver all sorts of training. This can include training specific to various job roles, HR training, and safety training. And–yes–you can also use an LMS when onboarding new employees.

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement

13 Questions to Ask When Scoping a Learning Development Engagement | Training | Scoop.it

All too often, training programs are developed just for training’s sake, just to check the training box. There must be a clear business objective that a training program is attempting to solve. If the business need isn’t there, the program shouldn’t be either.

This is quite corporate business training directed, but would also apply to any teacher training scenario.

Enrico De Angelis's curator insight, May 18, 2014 5:01 AM

Planning courses for a big US corporation around the world is not the same of a residential three years PhD Program.

Nevertheless, the 13 proposed questions make an interesting reference list.

Are they worth to be considered also in our european PhD Programs and their courses? I think so.

 

1. The problem we want to solve is to be clearly stated
2. The quality of the training project too ("success")
3. Who pays for the project (this is more difficult, in Academy)
4. The audience composition
5. Their attitudes and expectations (often disregarded)
6. The actual use of the transferred skills
7. How to track their learning engagement
8. How to cope with tools and practices of the audience
9. Flexibility of the training program

10. Existing content and knowledge to be leveraged
11. Resources to be provide
12. Milestones and dates
13. Budget (cost, time, and quality)
