Workplace learning improves task execution and quality of work rapidly. The good news is that the technology has been developed to get results fast and is easy to implement .
The proportions of formal and informal learning vary with the task at hand, the context for learning, and the psyche of the learner. Generally, informal learning carries anywhere from 4 to 10 times the weight of formal learning.
The old model is a wake-up call that says informal learning is important. Instead of acting like it’s not there, you should shape your organizations to nurture it. What’s missing is the how. How do you choose the aspects of informal learning you want to emphasize?
The 70-20-10 model * (by Michael M. Lombardo and Robert W. Eichinger) demonstrates the importance of where knowledge gain is optimised, and why work place learning is essential. These together with many new changes in the dynamics of training, its effectiveness and associated costs explain why changes from the old training methods to the new are essential to business competitiveness.
Edutouch has developed powerful workplace learning methods, systems and solutions which enables employees to learn at or close to the workplace.
The key elements required for successful workplace learning have been developed and proven over the past 12 years. This evolved technology and methodology enables employees to learn at their workplaces. The Micro learning activity of each employee is automatically organized into the appropriate element of the employees curricula. This makes it easy for management to track and manage each employees progress in curricula development. In summary, the technology includes inter-Alia:
- Enabling employees to learn on-the-job on a need-to-know basis (Micro Learning) from small chunks from a variety of electronic platforms – Tablet/Mobile/or fixed touchscreen.
- Intelligent navigation systems make it easy for employees with computer or reading literacy problems to access the specific information they require for the task at hand.
- The employee is required to test their understanding immediately after receiving the Micro Learning element to ensure their understanding prior to tackling the task.
- All bite-size learning activities are automatically recorded and associated to the specific element within the employees curricula through the unique LMS making it easy for management to track and manage employees development.
