Different opinions on technology in education do exist. Some say it is the future, some harbor doubts about it. But what can technology in education actually do? And how shall we respond to it?
What is microlearning?
Microlearning is the breaking down of information into very small and comprehensive parts and split into short learning sessions. The purpose is using the limited concentration capacity of the learners and providing them with tiny bits of information which can be quickly picked up by the student. Instead of long reviewing hours and tough study material, microlearning puts the focus on easily digestible content and short reviewing times in order to get the most out of a learning session.
A few years ago, “adaptive learning” became the favored phrase for many EdTech companies. There is plenty of hot air about what adaptive learning is and what it can do. What most companies and people unfortunately don´t know is that adaptive learning is actually more than just personalized learning paths resulting from the test results.
When you think about personalized learning, what is the first thing that comes up on your mind? In an interview with Bill Gates, he revealed what he thinks about the future of personalized learning and how it will affect the education system.
In a real life example, two schools with two different technology standards clash with each other and attract the attention when the father confronts his child´s teacher and talks about education. While adaptive learning software is commonly used in the one school, the other school – which the child attends- knows barely about that rising technology. The discussion about whether education methods should be changed or not, has started.
Use technology to leverage a high reach.
By supporting teachers and providing them with the essential tools to implement deeper learning methods, teachers and instructors get the opportunity to exchange experience and information with each other. This way, instructors are more powerful and effective compared to an individual work style. Sharing experience prevents colleagues from making the same mistakes or shows how to be more productive and thus can save time and energy. This connectivity can be an enormous change in our existing learning environment. Furthermore, by using additional tools like analytical programs, instructors can monitor their students, see their progress and have insights on how effective their training methods are.
Coordinating the training and development with business needs is one core challenge which both global HR directors and training managers have in common. As a matter of fact, the education and training methods have to be adapted to our modern and fast-paced environment in order to provide a visible impact for the business.
