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 learning – How it’s enabled by mobile-based microlearning

Ed App

Spaced repetition learning techniques are among the most effective forms of embedding knowledge in learners. Fundamentally, it describes a process of revision where learning is repeated at increasing intervals until the knowledge is permanently implanted. One of the latest implementation’s is EdApp’s new Brain Boost feature. Spaced repetition is a methodology made for mobile-based microlearning. But EdApp’s Brain Boost implementation takes matters even further.

The Best Spaced Repetition Schedule

Ed App

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.
