While there are several valid teaching methods, the latest discoveries in neuroscience have identified four factors necessary for successful learning. Compatible with the freedom and experimentation that remain important in pedagogy, these guiding factors can be integrated into various learning approaches.
Industry 4.0 is the next major industrial era. For context, the use of steam to power machinery brought the first industrial age, followed by mass production and assembly lines in the second and finally computer and automation in today’s industrial era. The fourth era is about connected, data-exchanging smart plants and machines.
If artificial intelligence (AI) rhymes with "learning" today, just a few years ago things looked very different. Although it was possible to identify print characters, play chess or make medical diagnoses using logical inferences from experts, the AI at the time was, however, laborious and limited since it required manual programming.
We are social beings: our need for belonging outweighs our need for dominance. Sharing with others and being part of a community is as fundamental to our development as it is to our survival. This social dimension is also the basis of our ability to learn, and the eLearning environment shouldn’t be a stranger to it.
According to scientists, the brain’s memory storage capacity is close to...
In a recent conversation with one of our clients, a major agro-food company, it struck me as interesting that one of the main benefits of eLearning for them is a means to ensure that every employee, regardless of where they are in the world, or which position they hold in the company, receives the same corporate messages.
To succeed on a learning path, the learner must engage and invest fully in it. However, in the context of online training, as everyone progresses in their own "time & space," the risk of feeling isolated can affect the motivation needed to persevere.
According to a study, we peak in productivity around...
No matter where or when it occurs, learning, as a process, is an important component of our lives, and trying to find better ways of going through it generated many significant improvements over the years. It also generated a myriad of false facts, and without further ado, these are our top 5 learning myths that are losing touch with reality.
Scientists have recently mapped the journey of a thought through the brain, and the craze for anything related to neuroscience continues to grow. Like many "fashionable" trends, it has been the subject of some drifts, with the prefix "neuro" being misused multiple times for marketing purposes.
