Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Jane Bozarth: Better than Bullet Points

Learning Visions

Effective design using PPT as a tool. Can do an awful lot with PPT. It’s very easy to load content on slides – but it takes more creativity to move learner to actual understanding! Use scenarios – apply what you know to make a decision.Ask the learner to take info that’s not clearcut and apply it using a question (in PPT – picture of a farmer and 3 images of “experts&# to ask for advice. Whose advice do you follow?)

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Audio in eLearning: Cultural Differences?

Learning Visions

Do you use audio on every slide because the client says people will think its broken if you dont? Weve taken this up before and many of us IDs know the strategies for using audio most effectively by now. We know to avoid narrating text word for word, for instance. You do know that, right?) Do Americans just like to talk way too much? Do I hear India? and what can we do now that we have digital voices that we couldnt do so well before?

Perspective Matters

Tom Spiglanin

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Most of us would instinctively say that we see ourselves, but of course we’re really looking at a reversed image of what others see. Our perspective of our image is inaccurate, but it’s nonetheless how we see ourselves through our mirror. Only through scientific observation and analysis do we know otherwise. Training may be needed to address performance gaps.

New Hires Not Working Out? Try Psychometric Testing

Mindflash

Too often sales executives find that newly hired sales professionals do not possess the particular traits needed for the jobs they were hired to do. If under-performing salespeople went through interviews and completed specific job training and yet still lack traits need to achieve results, where is the gap? Do not hire to skills,” says LaVon Koerner, CEO of Revenue Storm, a sales performance improvement provider that also offers psychometric testing for sales hiring.

Where is the road map?

Learning with e's

No matter how much successive governments pontificate on 'the way ahead' and no matter how much (or how little) money they throw at the problem, the fact is - we are standing still, because no one really knows where we are going. Anyone who claims they know the way forward is either deluded, or lying. Yet we do know this: Education needs reform, because far too many young people are being let down by the current system.

The universe has shifted slightly as Ive adjusted my images. Its nice to know who youre really talking to.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Will the Real eLearning Industry Please Stand Up?

Learning Visions

– the names we know and associate with eLearning – Jay Cross , Ellen Wagner , Tony Karrer , Brent Schlenker , [insert your name here]. The point is – and I don’t really know what the point is – the point is, that’s a whole heck of a lot of perspectives. Is it a story that's still being written? -- Great post Cammy; sometimes those of us involved are so close to what we do that we can't see the forest for trees.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: The Value of Instructional Designers

Learning Visions

Reuben on the downside of rapid e-Learning tools: The emergence of "easy-to-use" authoring tools, however, has tempted us to believe that the instructional designer can do it all! In reducing the value of an instructional designer by handing them tools to be lone gunmen, we have created the problem of believing we can replace or eliminate the instructional designer, since our in-house resident experts can do the very same job. Do you think you actually add any value these days? [I

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Learning Styles

Learning Visions

Theories do not help us to expand our awareness and understanding of learning; they serve to reduce and confine it. The idea of learning styles commonly refers to some notion for a preferred way of learning. I can see how theorists might argue that reading text aloud to the learner addresses multiple "learning styles," but the real-world experience is one of frustration: you want to read ahead but you cant because the narrator reads more slowly than you do.
