Overcoming Resistance to Games and Simulations

Kapp Notes

Recently, I wrote an article for ASTD’s Learning Circuits titled Barriers to Adopting Games in Corporate Environments. The concept behind the article is that there are some major reasons why games, which should be readily adopted as efficient, effective learning tools are not being adopted. Also, if you want to see how simulations have been adopted in an inexpensive and effective manner, check out this research paper. But only after you apply the information learned.

Power of informal learning in developing managers

Jay Cross's Informal Learning

Here’s a six-year old article on informal learning I discovered while Googling for material on learning transfer. Informal Learning and the Transfer of Learning: How Managers Develop Proficiency. Formal training occurs in the absence of action; learners are removed from the day-to-day work to engage in lectures, discussions, simulations, role plays, and other instructional activities.

A framework for content curation

Sure, they may be thoughtfully filtered and informatively annotated, but a hotchpotch is a hotchpotch. As learning in the workplace inevitably informalises, the motivation of employees to drive their own development becomes increasingly pivotal to their performance.

Strengthening Social Learning In the Workplace

Dashe & Thomson

The training industry has seen plenty of debate around whether or not organizations can and should take steps to strengthen social learning. Everyone agrees that social learning is very important and that somewhere between 70% and 80% of all learning is done socially and/or informally.

Future of Learning Technology – 2015

Upside Learning

The Learning Circuits Big Question this month asks – “ What will the workplace learning technology look like in 2015 ”. The question is inspired from a post by Derek Morrsion – Technology to Enhance Learning in 2015 , quite an interesting post, a must read.

The relationship between learning and performance support

The difference between training and performance support proxies (at least IMHO) the difference between formal and informal learning, and I do not intend to rehash that which others such as Jane have already documented so well. Learning is about preparing for performance.

Online courses must die!

E-Learning Provocateur

Yes, I know you can embed real interactivity into courseware via games, branched simulations, virtual worlds etc, but hardly anyone does that. If we dispense with online courses in favour of PDFs, how can we incorporate interactivity into the learning experience? Informalise learning.

Formal Learning All the Way.Baby

Kapp Notes

There has been a lot of talk about formal vs. informal learning in the educational blogosphere and when it comes right down to it, formal learning is the most effective. When I visited the Johns Hopkins Simulation Center , we ran a simulation involving a patient heart attack. The actions taken by myself and others occurred in a simulated hospital room using the same equipment found in any hospital room. Realistic, formal learning events make a difference.

5 ways to leverage AR and VR for training your employees

QuoDeck

In fact, according to STRIVR , learning retention rates with AR/VR can be as high as 75 percent as compared to just 10 percent retention rate through reading or lecture. You can create VR/AR applications that can be easily integrated with your Learning Management Systems (LMS) as well.

The evolving culture of informal learning

The Learning Circuits

Thanks to Jay Cross and others, we know that informal learning is ultimately much more productive of lasting effects than traditional formal learning, whether it be face to face, distance tutoring or the self-access variety of e-learning. Should simulation be dealt with as a separate category? Communities of practice are part of the response to the need to encourage informal learning and perpetuate its results.

How to Let Learners Make Mistakes in eLearning

Integrated Learnings

A few years ago, I was a co-researcher on a study that investigated the factors that influence informal workplace learning. The literature on the subject frequently references learning from mistakes as a typical form of informal learning. So how can we leverage this natural way of learning in eLearning lessons? This seemed like a clever way to prompt learners to reflect on their learning and potentially recognize mistakes themselves. By Shelley A.

MOOCs: Building Personal Learning Networks

Your Training Edge

One major change that MOOCs have greatly contributed to is the gaining recognition of learning as a primarily social activity, where the networks created are just as important (if not more important) as the content learned. The traditional practice of an instructor standing in front of a class of daydreaming students has been tossed out the window in favor of a new picture of an instructor as a facilitator who assists students to teach and learn from others and themselves.
