2 Minute Slide Challenge: From Boring Bullet Points to Stunning Designs! | Training | Scoop.it
Bullet Points is just pure laziness. Lists are not meant for a slide. 2 minutes are all you need to transform a list to a creative slide!

Caution: Templates aren't free but the creative ideas it may spark in you are. So take from it what you will.

Strategies for Learning from Failure

Strategies for Learning from Failure | Training | Scoop.it
We are programmed at an early age to think that failure is bad. That belief prevents organizations from effectively learning from their missteps.
Tiffany Crosby's insight:

Not all failure is created equally. This article highlights different types of failures - when they are a concern and when they should be celebrated. If you want a truly innovative culture, this is a must read.

Tiffany Crosby's insight:

I wholeheartedly agree with this article. Gamification is not a panacea and shouldn't be used in every situation. We do not need 100% gamification any more than we need 100% micro-learning or 100% elearning or 100% mobile learning. Each is a tool in a toolkit and as learning professionals, we need to take the time to determine when to use which tool.

Why Blooms Digital Taxonomy Matters

Why Blooms Digital Taxonomy Matters | Training | Scoop.it
Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy is a tool that can expedite this process for both experienced and novice instructional designers. It facilitates a design discussion that enables design teams to focus on using technology to facilitate learning, instead of just looking at what technology is most easily available.
Tiffany Crosby's insight:

I like this chart. I find it interesting to think about Bloom's in the digital age. For a bigger picture view of this wheel, go to http://www.wiredacademic.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/padagogy-wheel.jpg

Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 1, 2013 1:00 PM

The link between engagement and outcomes is clearer than ever. The article also suggests the importance of managers in creating engagement. By far then the single most important thing a company can and should do is to make sure than their managers are skillful engagers. They can hire managers who can create engagement and/or train managers to engage their teams. Creating a culture that supports these practices is an important additional factor that will help insure long-term success. 

Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:30 PM

"Concentrating on employee engagement can help companies withstand, and possibly even thrive, in tough economic times. Gallup researchers in 2012 studied the differences in performance between engaged and actively disengaged work units and found that those scoring in the top half on employee engagement nearly doubled their odds of success compared with those in the bottom half."

Tiffany Crosby's insight:

The same principle that applies to coaching also applies to learning. I can generally spot an "unteachable" person early on within a training program. And no, it's not based on whether or not they want to be there or whether they are social or not. It all comes down to the attitude they display during conversations.
