Why Micro Learning is huge and how to be a part of it

Tues Feb 21st

Microlearning is learning from content accessed in short bursts, content which is relevant to the individuals and which is repeated over time to ensure retention and build conceptual understanding. By 2025 it is estimated that Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce. Considering their average attention span is 90 seconds, you can’t ignore microlearning!

Donald H Taylor will also be sharing the survey results from his L&D Global Sentiment Survey of what L&D professionals think will be hot in 2017. This year, we have a New Zealand sample and attendees will receive a copy of the global report. There are some interesting differences in NZ in trends compared to the rest of the world. Last year microlearning was an emerging trend so it will be interesting to see what this latest trend is doing in 2017.

Retaining work based knowledge of the ageing workforce

Thu Apr 6th

Companies on average will see 36% of their workforce eligible to retire by 2020! Engaging and retaining our workforce is crucial if organisations are going to be able to maintain sufficient skill.

There have been a number of companies that have transformed their work environments to learning communities, with process education, knowledge sharing and document management woven into their cultural fabric.

Find out how your organisation can effectively transfer knowledge and focus on knowledge growth and retention.

eLearning beyond SCORM – xAPI

Thu Jun 15th

The Tin Can API (also known as xAPI) is a brand new specification for learning technology that makes it possible to collect data about the wide range of experiences a person has (online and offline). This API captures data in a consistent format about a person or group’s activities from many technologies. Very different systems are able to securely communicate by capturing and sharing this stream of activities using Tin Can’s simple vocabulary.

Why Micro Learning is huge and how to be a part of it

Wed March 8th – Wellington

Thu March 9th – Auckland

  • What is micro learning?
  • What is its significance in today’s learning scenario?
  • And what are the possibilities this technique offers to make learning effective and powerful?

Last month we hosted the Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute, Donald H Taylor on Microlearning, what it is and what it isn’t. He also shared the 2017 Global L&D Sentiment survey, trends in learning for 2017. Microlearning was 3rd overall and the number 1 trend in New Zealand. If you would like a copy of the web event and slide pack please email Nicki (nicki.turnbull@bloomtr.co.nz).

Microlearning is learning from content accessed in short bursts, content which is relevant to the individuals and which is repeated over time to ensure retention and build conceptual understanding. By 2025 it is estimated that Millennials will make up 75% of the workforce. Considering their average attention span is 90 seconds, you can’t ignore microlearning!

Your learners will love Microlearning as it consumes less of their time and is available exactly when they need it. Organisations love Microlearning because it’s cheaper to build, can be updated fairly easily and ensures better retention of the learning.

Join Bloom as we follow this up at our TechTalk, with showcases of who is using Microlearning in New Zealand, and how they are using it.

The Theme this year is ‘We are The Ones’
We are The Ones, as in The Matrix.  
We are the ones to impact business performance and growth, the ones to use technology to increase staff productivity andwe are the ones who can advise the business whether training is or itsn’t the right solution for their people.
We are the ones who should be trusted advisors not order takers.
Nigel Paine:  Master of Ceremonies & Keynote Speaker
Nigel Paine is back this year as our MC!  
Nigel is a change-focused leader with a worldwide reputation and a unique grasp of media, learning and development.  Our Platinum ticket holders will have the privilege of being registered on the day by Nigel and also participate in an evening Q&A with him over tapas and drinks.
Nigel’s keynote – We COULD be The Ones!
 The coming disruption of corporate learning will be the biggest shakeout for decades!  Which side of the fence will you land on?  This presso will share the huge waves of change about to hit L&D, and what you have to do to stay relevant and be part of it.  Here are brilliant opportunities and massive threats.  Don’t miss this – your career may depend on it!

Charles Jennings, 70:20:10 Institute: Keynote Speaker

We have pulled out all the stops to get Charles Jennings to eLearnz!

Charles is a leading thinker and practitioner in innovative performance and learning approaches.  He is known globally for his work with the 70:20:10 model.

Charles’ keynote – the Role of New Technology and the Value of Experience in the 70:20:10 Approach.

Sci-fi can teach us quite a bit about the possibilities and potential in the world of 70:20:10. Star Trek’s Borg and their hive mind explain that the universe of content in a learning environment equals the square of learner experiences. The Morpheus rescue scene in The Matrix tell us all about the power of real-time learning and performance support.

In today’s world both of these sci-fi fantasies are becoming realities. 70:20:10 harnesses the power of experiential and social learning and, with the right technologies, can help us exploit both. The result is greatly improved performance in the workplace.

Charles will use these two sci-fi metaphors, and others, to explain some ways 70:20:10 is being used by organisations to extend learning and eLearning beyond the ’10’ of structured courses and modules.

View the full line-up of speakers at www.elearnz.co.nz

Trends move so quickly in this digital age.  L&D Professionals must keep up-to-date and informed with the latest technology and techniques or risk being left behind.  eLab was introduced last year to assist L&D practitioners who were having a hard time keeping up with the latest learning tech and trends.  The hands-on workshops allowed them to play with new tech and learn low cost and free tools to help them create engaging elearning.  It was a runaway success and we are looking forward to hosting it again this year.

Come along to eLearnz eLab 2017 where you will learn hands-on in mini workshops presented by learrning leaders.  Our Master of Ceremonies is learning guru Nigel Paine.

eLearnz eLab 2017

 

Trends move so quickly in this digital age.  L&D Professionals must keep up-to-date and informed with the latest technology and techniques or risk being left behind.  Since our eLab workshops have been so successful in New Zealand, we are now introducing eLab to L&D practitioners in Australia.  This will be an opportunity to come together to see the latest in digital learning trends and learn hands-on from thought leaders.

The format

eLearnz eLab is a 2 day series of 6 mini workshops, with the focus on the latest in digital learning trends, technology and design.  You will work with the best minds in the world during these hands on sessions where you will actively create digital learning items.  You’ll go away with up-to-date training methods that you can put into practice immediately back at your organisation and pass along to your team.  You will also have a lot of fun and network with respected global and local leaders!

Our Platinum and Gold ticket holders will have the privilege of being registered on the day by Nigel and Platinum tickets will participate in an exclusive Q&A with him on conclusion of Day 1.

The workshops

Moving from Creation to Curation, and why you should, Nigel Paine.

In a world inundated with information and even with structured learning materials, rushing to create new product is not always the most effective solution.  So this workshop will take you from talking about Curation to actually developing a personal strategy for implementing a curation strategy. From thinking about Curation to actually having a go! And from random acts of curation to some kind of systematic and strategic policy that you can follow yourself or share with your organisation.

Bring a laptop or an iPad as we are really going to get stuck in!

Prezi – Create, give, and track beautiful interactive presentations as easy as 1,2,3

In this session you will create a fun animated presentation for your learning piece.

 

Edit a video using Camtasia

Often L&D professionals do not consider video because they think it is too expensive.  Camtasia Studio is a video editing software package that allows you to quickly and easily create high-quality training videos for mobile devices and the Web. It’s a superb tool for adding video to your blended learning solution.

In this session you will create and edit a video for your learning piece.

Anthony Henderson

As a part time author and advocate of great eLearning, Anthony Henderson brings 6 years of film and television industry experience to create truly blended learning solutions. “The duty of a post-production editor is to find your software’s key limitations in order to produce the ultimate outcome. Working with Storyline is no different.”  Within 1 year of using Storyline, he has been able to create an array of engaging, gamified and blended learning solutions.

Anthony facilitated the Storyline workshop at eLearnz eLab this year.  He was one of the best presenters, engaging and well prepared, working hands-on with the attendees and providing valuable resources to ensure everyone was able to complete their project.  The feedback below is from the eLab attendees.

“I learnt some new tricks and it was great to see the quality of his work with Burger fuel”

“This would have to be the best presentation. I really valued that Anthony provided us with a USB with a lot of files on it. This made it so easy when we went to create our Project.  We had time to think about what we were learning, put it into practice and reflect on what we were learning/doing”

“Anthony is a passionate and experienced designer. Great preparation for the workshop. The usb stick of resources is fantastic. He really understood what a learner designer would need in Articulate. Great job!”

“I picked up some great design principles in the workshop. Anthony was a fantastic presenter and he explained things very clearly. His work examples were amazing and it was great to see other examples of what people are creating.”

Anthony will demonstrate how to get the most out of Storyline to ensure you get great results in your organisation.
