Really Cool Bite-sized Increased Knowledge
Learning Objective → Video Delivery ∼ Learning Nuggets ≡ Improved Performance
Inspired by our generation of Millennials, we are taking the “flipped classroom” to a whole new level! Why? By 2025, Millennials alone will make up that 75 percent of the workforce and the average attention span of the Millennial generation is about 90 seconds. What does that mean? They think fast, move quickly and process information on the go.
But, they are not alone. Technology has pushed us all to process more information in less time and to get more things done for a growing number of customers. Our solution – deliver content to learners small, very specific bursts.
Remember, people learn differently. Our goal is to create a learning environment, along with resources and develop methods that best fit your learning style.
Microlearning allows learners to bee in control of what and when they’re learning. Content is delivered in small, well planned, bite-sized chunks of information or activities which we call learning vignettes. These “corto” or short sessions of 3 to 7 minutes are designed to match the human brain that most leans toward shorter attention span. It is easy to manage and fits the palate of just-in-time performance-based learning requirements of today’s workforce. Microlearning has become considered as one of the best instructional approaches for new age learners. One great example if TED Talk.
