Do you have the right attitude toward your eLearning?

Previously in recent posts I have talked about her thoughts on Imagination (see Is there only one answer to the eLearning problems that you look at? Having attitude also means that we must have motivation and confidence! If we do not have this “attitude” then we will not solve the problem.

Your Learners Have Attitude

CLO Magazine

Learners have a lot of attitude these days. Their choices are changing; their attitudes in the middle of learning experiences are shifting; and their assumptions about the yield of learning time invested are evolving. Your learners aren’t being rude or arrogant, but they do have a new attitude, which may be surprising, disappointing or confusing to us learning and development veterans. Your learner’s attitude will grow as the panorama of learning options expand.

Two Sigma Problem

Your Training Edge

Burke conducted studies of this effect at different grade levels and in different schools, observing students with “great differences in cognitive achievement, attitudes, and academic self-concept” What makes this problem so valuable and interesting to me is that Bloom sought to find a method of learning that elevated the learning of students equal to the one-on-one tutoring that achieves the 2 sigma performance.

Why Your Training Strategy Probably Needs an Attitude Adjustment

eLearningMind

If you’re taking on the paternal role for workplace training and notice that employees are more sullen teens than willing participants, you have a serious problem. Often, the issue with training initiatives isn’t only centered around the content, the delivery system, or even the strategy: It’s the attitude behind the training. The problem is that making the leap from traditional PowerPoint-based training to eLearning is that most transitions are handled badly.

Using an eWorkshop to initiate or enrich a community

The eLearning Nomad

Let’s look at professional development in structured learning events (eWorkshops) first: eWorkshops are structured learning events where participants collaborate by solving typical workplace problems together online. They need to work on the same problems/tasks in the same weeks as other participants though, but they don’t need to be online at the same time. There isn’t a specific problem to solve, unless a community member posts one.

Saffron Interactive and Amnesty International Ireland team up to challenge attitudes towards mental health

Saffron Interactive

Prejudice against those experiencing mental health problems is rife. Amnesty International Ireland has been campaigning for some years for those experiencing mental health problems to enjoy the same human rights as others, and this project is a key part of the programme of work. In one study, 58 per cent of people felt unfairly treated by mental health staff. Yet one in four people will experience significant mental distress at some point in their lives.

Bloom's 2 sigma problem: a summary

Yarno

In 1984 Benjamin Bloom authored a seminal paper called The two sigma problem: the search for methods of group instruction as effective as one-on-one tutoring. The tutoring group also spent more time on learning tasks and had the most positive attitude of the three groups at the end of the experiment. The paper is referred to as Bloom’s 2 sigma problem , since although ideal, small group tutoring is often impractical due to time and cost constraints.

Top 4 Problems with Diversity Training and How to Fix Them

KnowledgeCity

One of the problems might be your understanding of the definition of diversity. Some of the problem is the approach. Employees think they are not the problem. This is a problem called the Dunning-Kruger effect , where we believe we are better than we actually are at a task or problem, such as being empathetic or non-discriminatory. Will it actually solve problems? It can foster a worse attitude toward diversity.

Learning with 'e's

This process goes on through life, but some learning experiences can change our lives, transform our attitudes, and bring us to a place where we are radically different because of what we have learnt. His premise is that transformative learning can alter our emotional responses, our attitudes and our basic beliefs - and indeed ultimately, our world view. This is number 27 in my series on learning theories.
