Preparing the workforce of tomorrow

The digital revolution has changed the way we interact with the world around us. Traditionally, information has been pushed to us – a one-way, linear communication.

Now, the way we absorb information has evolved – and so has learning. We consume media selectively from a wide range of sources. Our classroom is all around us – and it is the student, not the teacher who is the focus. This is pull learning.

Limited available training time and a more mobile and decentralized workforce has transformed the way we develop people.

 

Be free to learn

The traditional approach to learning separated work from the tutor-led, classroom environment which transferred new skills which were taken back to the workplace. We are removing the hard borders between workplace and learning space and creating a continuous, immersive learning- environment where acquisition and application of new knowledge and skills takes place simultaneously.

Disruptive technologies provide tools which enable this anytime, anywhere, any medium approach.  Artificial Intelligence, machine learning and robotics are having a massive impact on the future of workforce capability. For businesses to succeed they need to both understand and embrace them.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – training platforms that adapt to you, not the other way around, optimize learning

JUST FOR YOU – curated content has become diverse and personalized, presented through next generation platforms

MEET LEARNERS WHERE THEY ARE – the workforce is mobile, so training delivery should be- modular, flexible and portable.

INCREASE ENGAGEMENT – inspired learners are good learners – engage with them through storytelling, gamification and Augmented Reality/ Virtual Reality / Mixed Reality*

THE NEW CLASSROOM – is both physical and virtual, with a collaborative and engaged dialogue between tutor and learner.

MICRO & MACRO LEARNING – from quick (just a couple of minutes) micro sessions to longer immersive studies – different methods, different benefits

SOCIAL LEARNING – challenge and support your colleagues – share, rank, and comment with the next generation of blended learning
