Three Ways Technology is Changing the Learning Space (Plus One)

Learningtogo

Most of us in the learning profession pride ourselves on being comfortable with technology. Whenever a new tool is available, we’re ready to give it a try, eager to adopt the latest way to help people learn. But you don’t have much time to bone up on the way these learning technologies because in many workplaces they are already here. Virtual Reality is Already Changing the Way We Learn About the World.

4 Ways to Design Learning Spaces That Foster Engagement

eLearningMind

We’ve talked about the best way to create a personal learning environment and how to create a company culture that embraces training. But when talking about actual, physical space, the discussion shifts a little. While the cultural tone and the availability of digital learning can definitely enhance a learner’s experience, the way your space is set up could be a help–or a roadblock. Learners who feel locked into their cubicle space may feel painted into a corner.

Spaced Repetition is one of the most effective forms of learning. It also works well with mobile learning – eLearning that takes place on a mobile device – because smartphones are ubiquitous and always to hand plus they use software which remembers which questions the learner got right. So what is the best spaced repetition schedule? What is a spaced repetition schedule? Without a sophisticated spaced repetition schedule, recall easily diminishes over time.

Learning with 'e's

The notion of learning spaces is gaining traction across all sectors of education. Learning spaces are not only used to describe places we can learn, but can also be representative of the human mind. The only difference other than scale, is that physical learning spaces have their limits, whilst no-one has yet been able to define the boundaries of the human mind and its capabilities. There have been many other metaphors used to depict learning.

Investing time and money in course creation and training is ineffective if your learners aren’t absorbing what they learn and applying it to their work. Basically, learners will rapidly lose memory of learned knowledge in a matter of days or weeks unless the information is consciously reviewed. Some studies suggest that humans forget approx 50% of new information within an hour of learning it. Spaced learning. Let’s set out what exactly spaced learning is.

Kapp Notes

Challenge : As the game-based learning expert James Paul Gee has said, good games give players a set of challenging problems and let them solve those problems until they can do it automatically. They must learn something new and integrate into their old mastery. In addition, content or learning tasks that are too easy or too difficult will not pique a learner’s interest because they lead to boredom or frustration. When designing learning, strive for action.
