Micro learning and bite sized brain friendly learning Driven partly by budgets and managers demands to have staff away from "the day job" as little as possible, micro or bite size learning solutions have gained popularity in recent years. Go back 20 years and a 5 day course was the order of the day, then 3 days.. 2 days.. 1 day and then into one hour sessions. Now we are in the age of micro-learning. Learning solutions that often take just seconds to achieve, that can be chained into … [Read more...] about Micro-learning accelerated learning made practical?

That is to present or acquire information in a way which makes it easier for the receiving brain to process and retain. Often programmes that are called "accelerated learning" are "learn to learn" type events/ … [Read more...] about How to MASTER Accelerated Learning
Exploring the impact of the Internet on Accelerated Learning methods and techniques. 1: Introduction: Of all the ten articles we chose to present for our website in this series, this article, viz, the final one posed the greatest challenge not because of paucity of research contents but because of the appropriateness. In fact, keying in the search words Web and Accelerated Learning (or "Internet and Accelerated Learning") within quotes did not produce any results and without quotes threw a … [Read more...] about The Impact of the Web on Accelerated Learning
The brain & learning - what bit does what? 1.0: Introduction: Without diluting the importance of the concepts involved in this article which would be discussed in a scientific manner as they demand, we would start it in a lighter vain with a story. The story may apparently look like a little disjointed but a reflection on it would bring out its relevance as this article relates to the brain and it may be necessary understand the unpredictable ways it functions. Chemical balance in the … [Read more...] about The brain & learning – what bit does what

In the words of accomplished American Psychologist William James, W (1890), 'the faculty of voluntarily bringing back a wandering attention over and over again is the very root of judgment, … [Read more...] about Lozanov on learning "double plane"
Key Developers of Super Learning Techniques1.0: Introduction: In this article, we would have an overview of the evolvement of the theory and techniques of super learning techniques and through which we consider the transformation of original theory known as 'Suggestopedia'. The term 'Suggestopedia' was coined by Dr.Georgi Lozanov (which was dealt in the first article) to denote its application to a combination of two functional terms, viz, suggestion and pedagogy. This was done to stress … [Read more...] about Key Developers of Super Learning Techniques
How we learn – and making learning work for us With regards to learning are we evolving or regressingSome years ago I was asked to speak at an international conference on e-learning. What I was talking about is not relevant, but what I learnt from the keynote speaker has changed my approach to training and learning and development.The speaker concerned was Professor Heinz Wolf from Brunel University (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heinz_Wolff). What follows is not ‘word for … [Read more...] about Learning, are we evolving or regressing – Things Trainers wont tell you! #hrblog
Using researched based learning and instructional design Based on research from the fields of cognitive science and neuroscience, Ewell* suggests that there are 30 behaviours which when adopted lead to effective learning. For those of us responsible for workplace learning and development activity, we should consider these behaviours and build our development strategies towards harnessing them in our learning and instructional design. Whether we use the outdated 70:20:10 or the 3-33, there … [Read more...] about 30 Behaviours for Effective Learning
The SAVI approach to learning 1.0: Introduction:In Accelerated Learning, the acronym 'SAVI' stands for Somatic, Auditory, Visual and Intellectual methods of imparting education. In non-technical terms, it is learning through physical activity, talking and social interaction, listening and watching, and thinking, reflecting (and) analysing respectively. It was developed by the Center for Accelerated Learning.In this article, we propose to deal developments in the background of this … [Read more...] about The SAVI approach to learning
