The advent of the Internet, Web 2.0, social media, and of course mobile devices have dramatically changed the way all of us obtain information. Our social and cultural lives have been transformed by technology and the speed of knowledge exchange.
With the world literally at our fingertips with a few strokes on our computer keyboards, many of us have become proactive in searching out information on a need-to-know basis without waiting to take a class or read a book. In essence, we are microlearning!
Wikipedia defines microlearning as, “dealing with relatively small learning units and short-term learning activities.” A tweet, a short video, a podcast, a section of a blog, a wiki, a Skype call, and Google Buzz, all can be considered microlearning.
Lana’s presentation sparked a lively discussion on how we can bridge traditional training methodologies with microlearning tools.
At this event Lana spoke about:
- The Top 100 Tools of 2010 that people are using for Microlearning
- Mobile technology and how it effects our learning environments
- Exploration of several microlearning tools
