Reconciling Activity and Decisions

Clark Quinn

In preparing to work with a client on developing their learning science understanding, I realized that I was using two representations about meaningful learner interaction that could be seen to be conflicting.  On the one hand I talk about using decisions as a basis for design, and on the other I refer to activity -based learning. What was necessary was reconciling activity and decisions.

Four Emerging Technologies that L&D Leaders Need to Consider

Bottom-Line Performance

It’s been “emerging” since 2008… and still only a handful of organizations are using it in a meaningful way. Consequently, I think it makes sense for learning leaders to be asking themselves how they can integrate video, interactivity, and mobile together to produce just-in-time solutions and practice activities. Mobile in Cars… Really. BIG DATA.

Activities for Integrating Learning

Clark Quinn

I’ve been working on a learning design that integrates developing social media skills with developing specific competencies, aligned with real work.  It’s an interesting integration, and I drafted a pedagogy that I believe accomplishes the task.  It draws heavily on the notion of activity -based learning. The learning process is broken up into a series of activities.

4 Key Emerging Trends in LMS

Upside Learning

Cloud computing is emerging as an inexpensive, quick and efficient way of delivering training through LMS.

Emergence of the Performance Catalyst

Tom Spiglanin

New tools emerged, social platforms exploded onto the scene, and mobile technologies changed where, when, and how workplace learning occurs. They understand that learning is an inherently social activity and enthusiastically explore ways to leverage workplace technology to span time, place, and distance to stimulate social learning. Of course that was only the beginning.

Fundamental Design of Learning Activities

Aaron Silvers

Design Thinking offers a set of tools to make sense of “wicked problems” and mysteries, and in this post I attempt to narrate my ideational journey in making sense of learning by digital means, the concept that I call learning experiences, and a notional (but far from complete) model for learning activities designed for individuals to experience. What Are Activities? Combat-Readiness.

Drill and Practice Activities for Your eLearning Courses

Reinforcement activities are practice activities that give learners the chance to apply the information, knowledge, and skills they have learned from the course. Drill and Practice Activity Types.

Types and proportions of learning activities?

Clark Quinn

There are some things that need to be known cold, e.g. emergency procedures, hence the tremendous emphasis on drills in aviation and the military. I’ve been on quite the roll of late, calling out some bad practices and calling for learning science. And it occurs to me that there could be some pushback.  So let me be clear, I strongly suggest that the types of learning that are needed are not info dump and knowledge test,  by and large. What does that mean? Let’s break it down. There are times when fact remembering is needed, such as medical vocabulary (my go-to example).

Activate your knowledge

Learning and Working on the Web

It is a framework that helps move from an awareness of knowledge to activation of its use in the context of getting work done. Activation of knowledge happens in the context of tasks and so the cycle continues. Knowledge only emerges through the work, it is not predetermined. PKM is much more than processing information. Passion at Work, page 11]. PKM is completely contextual.

Emerging new roles for learning and performance professionals

As stable as the API is, it has a number of limitations: Activities must be launched from the LMS.

problem arises, however, when active participation is expected.

Again, when the expectation of active participation is not met, everyone’s learning experience suffers. You see, we love learning.
