    [Providers] Digital native or digital immigrant?
    As the people providing them with learning, we need to challenge our assumptions about how learners use technology – which methods need updating and which are constantly effective. Prensky’s metaphor of people being digital natives (intuitively understanding how recent technology works) or digital immigrants (needing support/ training in order to grasp new technology) seems wonderfully rich to me. Here’s an example from recent life. The other day we were visiting one of my wife’s godsons who was proudly showing off his Wii. We had a go at the tennis game.

    The emergence of LDPs gives some rays of hope to L&D practitioners within law firms: • By recognising that people with non-lawyer skillsets merit the status of partnership, it increases the long term career potential and earning power of L&D practitioners. • By decreasing the pre-eminence of legal knowhow, L&D practitioners can focus more on providing learning in the other people-related competencies, which they will typically feel more at home with. • Law firm cultures will gradually move so that the gap in status between lawyers and non-fee earners reduces.

    That is, you want to provide practice with the resources as part of the learning experience to develop the performer’s ability to use the resources in the performance situation. A couple of months ago, I posted on thinking about designing, calling for designing ‘backwards and forwards’  And it’s continued to percolate, rightly or wrongly. While the HPT movement thinks about this as well (they definitely talk about whether it should be a learning or performance support solution; I don’t know but assume they will do a mix if needed).

    [Providers] From FTF to Online
    It’s likely there are many ways for prices to be determined (regardless of the industry), so providing a general overview of the price-setting options is imperative. This could be provided in a short tutorial that provides simple opportunities for learners to see examples of the various price-setting options, practice each, and make some general applications to their own situations. They’re different teaching and learning modes, and need to be planned for accordingly. That’s what I’m saying. Basic accounting. Industry-specific accounting. Case study.

    A futurist’s out-of-the-box ideas on how education should develop provide inspiration for the training programs of today. Among the proposed solutions to America’s much-discussed crisis in public education are merit pay for teachers , more charter schools and curriculum reform. But recently the blog of The Futurist magazine offered a less common vision of where America’s education system needs to head — one that could inform professional training for adults right now. The piece by author Lance Secretan looks to Sal Kahn for inspiration. Do you think Secretan’s on the right track?
