Brainstorming Doesn't Work -- Do This Instead | eLearning Strategies | Scoop.it
In spite of decades of evidence to the contrary, many companies continue to brainstorm solutions in crowded conference rooms, filling up white boards with sticky notes and mind-mapping trees.

Experience API [xAPI] & Why You Should Give a Rip

Experience API [xAPI] & Why You Should Give a Rip | eLearning Strategies | Scoop.it
They say that even a blind squirrel will find a nut eventually, and I am living proof of that concept. So there I was at DevLearn 2014 locked in to speak at a couple of breakout sessions and facilitate a tabletop discussion at the crack of dawn on day one. I’m there on a Performance Support mission of “seek and learn” and purely by accident I stumbled over a pre-conference session Tuesday afternoon called the xAPI Hyperdrive. Yup…maybe not totally aligned with the squirrel metaphor, but I found a nut I was not even looking for…and it changed my entire conference agenda.

Every learner is different but not because of their learning styles

Every learner is different but not because of their learning styles | eLearning Strategies | Scoop.it

"The idea that individuals have distinct learning styles has been around long enough to become part of the folklore of educational practice and an integral part of how people perceive themselves. The underlying premise says that people receive and process new information differently: for example, some learn better from visual materials and others learn better from text or auditory materials. Moreover, the theory holds that people who receive instruction in a manner that is not matched to their learning style are at a disadvantage for learning."


There appears to be no scientific evidence to support learning styles theories and plenty of evidence to suggest that they may be doing more harm than good.

How Working Out Loud Helps Us Learn | eLearning Strategies | Scoop.it

It’s always a challenge for practitioners of any stripe to find the time to reflect on their work, a critical element of learning. Working out loud takes us off autopilot and forces us to confront assumptions, bad habits, and prejudices.

Exploring Learning Analytics: How is it affecting corporate learning? | eLearning Strategies | Scoop.it
With changing technologies, the learning industry is changing its expectations from e-learning as well. While until a few years ago e-learning was simply making learning available and accessible to learners, today learning professionals are keen on uplifting the user experience and want more out of the learning experience. One of the main concerns for L&D managers today is to make sure that the learning provided is aligned to the needs and requirements of the learners. This is reflected in the industry-wide interest in Big Data and adopting newer standards like Tin Can API that can help make sense of the data to churn useful inputs on learner experience.
