Training vs. Learning and the Role of Mobile Devices | Social.

Social Learning Blog Training and Performance Improvement in the Real World Home About Bios Subscribe to RSS Training vs. Learning and the Role of Mobile Devices by Paul on November 24, 2010 in mobile learning , social learning In an article she wrote for Training Magazine in June 2009 called Best Buy’s New Role , Terah Shelton explores Best Buy’s then-new Results-Oriented Learning Environment (ROLE). Through an interview with John Congemi, senior manager of retail learning and development, we learn that all training initiatives at Best Buy now center on the three pillars of ROLE: freedom, co-creation and a robust library of learning content. John states: “We’re committed to providing flexible, accessible, and customized learning opportunities. Going forward, our retail associates can learn where, when and how they choose.” I Love To Learn While reading the article, specifically the excerpt above, I was blown away by how simple yet powerful an idea Best Buy was implementing. As a salesman I’ve been taught to avoid selling situations for buying ones. Customers don’t want to be sold but they love to buy. I think the same thing applies to employees or even people in general when it comes to training. Have you ever heard someone say, “I love to be taught!”? I know I haven’t. I’ve heard plenty of people say, “I love to learn,” though. JIT Learning Society If I take a step back and try to think of the most obvious way the Internet has changed my life, I would say it’s changed how I access information. In other words, it’s changed the way I learn. I think most people would say the same thing. If I ever want to learn anything, whether it’s how to get somewhere, where a good place to grab dinner is, or what my friend’s phone number is, the information is a few keystrokes away. We still get our information from other people, but instead of having to go to a classroom or library to take it in, we can all sit down at a computer to learn just about anything we would ever want to learn, when we want to learn it. Our world has evolved into a just-in-time learning society. Mobile Learning People within the training industry have debated for quite some time how mobile devices will affect the delivery of training. What kinds of courseware can we offer on mobile devices? Can we incorporate mobile phones into the delivery of web-based training or even instructor-led training as a fun break to the monotony that is forced learning. I ask, why fit a square peg into a round hole? Take a second to think about when, where and why you use your mobile device. I think the majority of us use them throughout the day no matter where we are to communicate with others and access information. They are the epitome of a just-in-time device. So why not utilize these JIT devices for the JIT learning that we now demand as a society? Mobile learning should be a fast, easy user experience where learners can access a “robust library of content” and communicate with others. Envision a phone application that allows you to browse FAQs, search for desired training content and access collaborative workspaces including wikis and forums that contain user-generated content. What more would you need to learn effectively on your mobile device? Best Buy has tapped into a present-day societal truth: people prefer learning to being taught. Mobile devices are just one set of tools that can be utilized to deliver this flexible, on-demand learning. Companies are developing “town square” learning centers that house all of their training content for employees to access where, when and how they choose. And if you’re worried about accountability, create a program that tracks employees’ progress through the required content. Or don’t.
