ENHANCE YOUR LEARNING
Digital Learning is an instructional practice that ultimately helps all types of learners.
It makes use of a broad range of technology enhanced educational strategies.
While many people think of digital learning as merely the use of digital tools in the classroom, we believe digital learning is meant to enhance learning, not simply continue existing learning via digital means. Our digital learning focuses on the following methodologies, strategies, techniques and interventions:
Learning should not just be about certification, it should be about application and making a difference in the real world.
'The Learning Alchemists'
a seemingly magical process of Transformation, Creation or Combination
When it comes to learning, we like to think of ourselves as
The Learning Alchemists, a company who can Transform, Create and Combine learning into effective interventions.
We use many different techniques & methodologies that can bring it all together in one successful course that learners enjoy, and ultimately use in their everyday lives.
With recent global events, our courses are now primarily Virtually delivered, with an emphasis on learner collaboration, and a measurable return on investment.
Collaborative & On-The-Job Learning
The aim for any enterprise is to effectively integrate learning with their business. Changes to mindset, behaviors and habits have to be reinforced over a period of time, so moving away from the traditional ways of training typically begins with the evolution of the various roles & skills sets of the trainer or facilitator.
Learning Circles empowers trainers to operate as both 'Subject Matter Experts' to publish knowledge as a digital intervention, and trainers to apply innovation and creativity in facilitating learner engagement, so as to ensure there is measurable ROI.
The engagement in a Learning Circle allows collaborative learning – observe what everyone has learnt and their opinions. Through digitalisation, practice, On-the-Job reinforcement of the application of learning is made possible.
An UNFORGETTABLE Learning Journey
Contrary to what we may believe, long term recall is rarely achieved in a one time event. Spaced Learning is the key to learning retention, and it involves understanding memory.
Every time we learn new information, it gets filed under 'temporary'. If we revisit that information, and really understand how to apply and reinforce it, then that information gets moved to a long-term memory filing cabinet. However, if we fail to revisit, apply and reinforce the knowledge we’ve learned, then after a while we tend to clear it from the temporary cabinet altogether, to make room for new learnings.
This happens because learners have both a learning curve and a forgetting curve. We specialise in Spaced Learning which helps learners learn quickly and forget slowly, and focuses on a cognitive process of 'repeating or repetition'. So the best type of learning is when it is delivered in smaller 'chunks' over time, which is why we deliver Pre, During & Post virtual workshop modules.
Knowledge Transfer through EXPERIENCE
Experiential learning theory differs from cognitive and behavioral theories in that cognitive theories emphasise the role of mental processes during learning, while behavioral theories ignore the possible role of subjective experience in the learning process.
The experiential methodology takes a more holistic approach and emphasises how experiences, including cognition, environmental factors, and emotions, influence the learning process.
The Learning Circle concept we use is ideally suited to Experiential learning because of the large amount of emphasis placed on
On-The-Job or In-the-Field activities where people can learn from their peers with collaborative activities.
Using PowerPoint® as the BASE for Learning
Rapid Learning refers to a methodology of actually creating learning courses quickly, as well as providing quick 'bite sized chunks' of learning often called Microlearning for the learner.
With our skills in Presentational Development, we will often conceive, develop and create slides in PowerPoint, record audio and video narration on top of the slides, and then use specialised software to add quizzes, surveys and other interactions or even collaboration activities, between the slides. The whole package is then converted to HTML5, and sent to a learning management system or website where learners can access the learning.
Rapid Learning is ideal for Virtual Learning & Coaching. Simply taking PowerPoint learning slides and delivering them over Zoom or MS Teams is not very effective. However, converting the PowerPoint to HTML5 and delivering with interactions is very effective in engaging audiences and time saving for authoring..
Effective Small Learning & Informative CHUNKS
Micro Learning is a holistic approach, typically delivered on mobile devices, for specific skill based learning and education which deals with learning quickly on a specific topic. A good example would be an update on a particular process where running a full learning course would not be cost effective, or something involving short term strategies such as health related events.
We link Micro Learning to our own Microstyle Messaging as everything needs to be in smaller chunks for effectiveness.
Text, Images, Illustrations, Audio, Video, Quizzes, Interactions, Surveys, Learning Actions, Predictive Techniques and Gamification are all included in the Micro learning we create for our clients.
