Emergence of the Performance Catalyst

Tom Spiglanin

” Perhaps this is a natural aspect of human nature to take the safe path rather than to explore uncharted territory to find better, more effective paths. Especially when performance expectations, deadlines, and budgets are set by others, it can be downright frightening to attempt something new with uncertain success. Haven’t we all abandoned proven and effective work styles for ineffective patterns of behavior when under stress?

The State of Instructional Design

Tom Spiglanin

Perhaps it’s tempting to blame the design process for failing to produce effective solutions, but I would disagree. They may also include online social components, performance support options, Internet-based resources, internal proprietary content, video, learner-produced content, and much more. This in no way suggests we give up responsibility for developing effective formal workplace training.

Corporate Learning will be transformed and will take on more importance wrote Josh Bersin in his HR predictions for 2015. Coping with content and lots of information is a part of seamless learning because the capacity to do so affects effective learning.”.

“Good Enough” in Learning and Development

Tom Spiglanin

Clark Quinn mapped the learning curve against this framework , 4 charting employee’s performance against the totality of their learning over time. Learning (training) is the cause, and knowledge or workplace performance is the consequence. This may be the case for an individual’s overall performance or capability in the workplace, so the formal education that led to landing the job is a significant but brief part of overall workplace performance. 2015. <[link].

I Believe that Learning is Inherently Social

Tom Spiglanin

We may follow a manual to effect a repair we’ve never attempted before. Learning by experience can be quite effective. ” But while effective, it isn’t terribly efficient on its own. Learning alone may be effective, but very inefficient. It’s efficient in some ways, but it’s not effective. It seems to be both effective and efficient at transferring skills, knowledge, and even attitudes about the Starbucks customer experience.

Perspective Matters

Tom Spiglanin

While different training departments serve a variety of customers, they all share common attributes: they have a population of workers who use their products and services, a smaller population of managers who look to training to address performance and knowledge gaps, and sponsors who fund the training departments. Within the business units, workers need a sufficient set of skills and knowledge to perform their jobs for the organization to succeed.

The Demise of E-learning (the brand)

Then, when they do, they use every ploy imaginable to minimize their discomfort, which often includes performing a variety of other tasks at the same time, paying only minimal attention to the required program. Frustratingly, it also includes starting with the lowest common understanding among those who must participate, even when many are already knowledgeable, causing them to tune out and likely miss the one or two things they really do need to learn.

Revisiting 70:20:10

The Pygmalion effect , as it''s known can be beneficial. If teachers ascribe great expectations onto their students, those students tend to perform better as a result. The reverse (or the Golem effect ) can also occur. When teachers see students as time wasters, and expect less from them, those students tend to under perform. education Golem effect learning Pygmalion in the Classroom Rosenthal and Jacobson schools Self Fulfilling Prophecy teachers

Tested to distraction

Learning with 'e's

The side effects of over-testing are that children become victims of the scramble to be best in the league tables. Everyone is forced to perform at a level that aligns to what those in power expect. Everyone is distracted from the business of learning by the need to 'perform'. But when performance counts more than learning, then education systems are in a lot of trouble. Should we put our children through so much stress? Get ready for a rant.

How complex is learning?

Learning with 'e's

The common view from this camp is that computers and other technologies either distract from the real purpose of education, cause undesirable changes to the structure of our brains, or undermine knowledge and learning by trivializing it. Teachers perform roles that even the most powerful computers could never replicate. Consciousness , intuition, belief, creativity and emotional engagement are all peculiarly human traits, and none of them are rule bound.

To start off, he played Tina Turner''s pop anthem , got everyone clapping along, and he even performed a bit of a dance too. Just the identification of being human together and feeling a connection to other thinking, feeling human beings - this is Agape love, and it should be central to the ethos of being an effective educator.

Fair measures

Learning with 'e's

Ipsative assessment is not a commonly known method, and yet most of us use it just about every day to measure ourselves. Here''s what Wikipedia says (and it''s accurate): In education, ipsative assessment is the practice of assessing present performance against the prior performance of the person being assessed. One place where this might be implemented is in reference to tests used with K-12 students in the United States, where teacher performance is currently popular.

Fade away

Technology, just like any other set of tools, is there to help us all to do the job better, smarter, more effectively. Just don''t ever make it appear to be special - the most effective educational technologies fade into the background as learning, and the student, take centre stage. Technology, just like any other set of tools, is there to help the user perform. I firmly believe that if we are to reform education we need the help of technology.

I Believe in the Value of Connectedness

Tom Spiglanin

While every organization in the world is unique, most have characteristics in common. All employees are ultimately connected to one another through a common purpose to succeed and fulfill the mission of the organization. Sharing a common purpose and vision may be the most basic element of connectedness for employees, but it’s very loose and at a high-level. High performing individuals commonly enjoy even higher levels of connectedness within the organization.

If the content you’re recording has its own audio—like the sound effects in a game—you will want to unmute your device so it is captured. If you’re recording a game or app that has both background music and sound effects you should turn off music within the game settings. Instead of recording the music in real-time, you can record the sound effects and import the music later into your video editor as a separate track.

Standard deviation

Learning with 'e's

Distractions in the workplace are common. First there is the social impact: Communication technology may create a psychological distance between people; it can have detrimental effects on our concentration. Such deviation from tasks can seriously effect productivity, and may compromise the health and safety of self and others. Distractions can also lead to poor decision making and inevitably increase task completion time (Lee and Duffy, 2015).
