More evolution of learning


Time for another question peeps. What do you think has been the most significant development in the evolution of learning? It could be something broad like 'the internet', it could be something conceptual like Kirkpatrick's model of evaluation.
What do you think?

  1. Just in time

    I think in "the old days" we used to learn "stuff" that would last us a significant period of time. These days a lot of the "stuff" we learn is outdated in no time at all.

    "They" say our great grandparents would learn a skill and it would last them a lifetime. Our children will learn a skill and it will last 3 years.

    So in my opinion the most significant development is the search engine. I had quite a complicated problem with my phone last week and I fixed it in less than 5 minutes by accessing a Techy forum…all free and available 24/7

    "Just in time learning" is definetely the future.

    BMW have a system where their Technicians wear virtual reality headgear and when they look in the engine it displays whats wrong and how to fix it…amazing!

  2. Reflecting the business

    For me it’s that fewer organisations employ ‘knowledge workers’ than ‘skill workers’; to support this we’ve moved from training knowledge to helping people to learn skills.
