I always like these small differences, but I think they are very useful when considering learning and how it might be created and the stage of the change journey the learner is on.

For example if you are creating a piece of learning you may need to consider if the person has already realised they are competent or not competent at doing something. You may want to help them through this realisaion from not being to becoming competent by having a quizz initially for the learner to assess their knowledge.

Then as they work their way through the learning, you might have different activities to test the various levels of competency, hence strengthening the learning.

But we should remember that this should not be the end of the learning journey but the begining, until they have reached the stage of unconscious competence. Effectively doing without thinking.

Hi Lieve,

Correct no one is a dummy and everyone (not necesssarily) has a different way of learning, but begining to realise what you know and what you don’t know and identifying that is a very interesting journey, and one that can be built into learning. This can then be connected to personal development plans etc and begin to have true 360 learning.

🙂

Cheers

Andy

You may know that I am not keen on theories.  How can you do this practically, that is my concern. Example: I was using flipped classrooms long time before I found out the term. For Captivate training (my present jobs) I start each training with a personal discussion to find out important data about the available skills and future goals. That will be the start for the setup of a learning schedule, rarely the same for two learners. How will you build this in pure asynchronized eLearning? How do you change the ‘learning schedule’ based on what you found?

Due to your swift reply, I suspect you are not in North America? The educational culture in countries can be very different.

I have been writing a lot about my vision on personalized training, mostly starting with ‘No one is a dummy when taking a training, every learner has skills’. It was one of the reasons I found Captivate as tool for my classroom training in university college to help with personalization.  And at the same time it is also the cause for my frustration when I see so many canned trainings which do not honor existing skills at all. You can find more details about my ideas in some articles here, and on my website.
