Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking

Learning Visions

Monday, June 18, 2007 Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking From the Eide Neurolearning Blog: Voluntary Control of Attention - Visual and Auditory Multi-Tasking There is a yin and yang effect between visual and auditory attention. Mixed visual-auditory stimuli have an underadditive effect, so that if you have to do both at the same time, total brain activation goes down. Maybe the "underadditive effect" occurs when a multimedia presentation does all the thinking for you.

Is it a Classroom or a Prison? Some Common Sense on Measuring Training Effectiveness

Mindflash

This is the type of common sense that doesn’t turn into ROI, but I think more accurately measures many programs. Yes, there will always be the student who LOVES classes (and hint, hint — the student who LOVES all classes is typically a lower-performing employee). 3) Undertrained vs. under-performing. Oh, this makes me sound like the big, bad, evil teacher, but it makes me nervous when I start getting too many under-performers requesting help.

Music, learning and pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

The conversation turned to music, my songwriting and performances with various bands during the 80s and 90s. It becomes crucial that you pay attention to everyone else around you, and listen to what is being sung and played. If you decide to go off on your own, there is likely to be discord, confusion and a general loss of tempo or impetus in a performance. Teachers who work with their students tend to be more effective than those who stand apart.

Identity in a digital age

Learning with e's

Goffman saw social interaction as a drama performance, in which the actor's behaviour was framed by front stage and back stage roles, scripts, props and costumes. One of the most important, but often ignored features of Goffman's Dramaturgical Model is the presence of an audience, to which the actor consciously (or unconsciously) performs. This has great import in our understanding of how we perform to audiences in social media (of which more later in this post).

Self fulfilling prophecies

Learning with 'e's

My most recent post featured locus of control theory, and today's post is about the Pygmalion Effect in education. The theory Robert Rosethal and Leonora Jacobson conducted studies in American schools during the 1960s focused on the effect teachers can have on the learning performances of children. This effect is commonly known in education as the ' Pygmalion effect ' but is more accurately referred to as the 'observer-expectancy effect'.

I Believe in the Inverse Relationship Between Experience and the Value of Formal Learning

Tom Spiglanin

To be clear, I’m not talking about learning styles or preferences, nor am I making assumptions about attention spans or preferences for the format of information. As a Learning and Development (L&D) professional and strategist, I think about choices for addressing performance needs in the workplace. At others, it’s performance support, coaching and mentoring, or possibly connecting one employee with others.

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)

Tom Spiglanin

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.

Learning and the Changing Workplace – Part 1

Tom Spiglanin

Some point to TED and Khan Academy content as exemplars of the future of workplace learning, including the ability to learn at convenient times and places or the effectiveness of “flipped” training where content is consumed outside a classroom and face-to-face sessions are used to discuss it and application within the organization.

Photo by Pedro Figueras on Pexels In my last post I wrote about smartphones and other personal devices, and their tendency to distract us by diverting our attention. Distractions in the workplace are common. An email pops up on your desktop screen asking for your 'urgent' attention, Facebook messenger pings on your smartphone telling you someone has responded to your earlier status update. Now less attention is being paid to the other person than is socially expected.

Fade away

Learning with 'e's

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.
