Creativity, emotional intelligence and the ability to collaborate are among the top 10 skills that will be most sought after in 2020, as well as, let's say ... tomorrow! In the wake of the 4th Industrial Revolution led by the Internet of Things and digital technologies, it appears that the actual "human" qualities are becoming popular.
While the most advanced AI programs can successfully mimic the cognitive functions associated with human intelligence, decoding humor and making people laugh gets a bit more complicated.
We learn every day, unpredictably, in a variety of personal and professional situations. The potential of informal learning in the workplace is attracting growing interest, and educational researchers are no longer merely viewing it in the form of opposition to its formal counterpart.
Business owners who will need to sell or transfer their businesses in the next 10 years are estimated at 30,000, a figure that some say is conservative. Put this number mostly on the fact that the “baby boomers” are beginning to retire.
Fast, versatile, and engaging, micro-learning is an important trend in online education. This approach fragments information into "little bites" and can take now innovative forms to serve more structured online courses.
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.
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.
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.
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.
