I just finished a fascinating blog post by Michael Noble, CLO at my company. In this case, I’m not reposting for the company’s sake – I was geniunely intrigued by Noble’s takeaways from Masie’s.
|Previously||Now and in the Future|
|Learner recall||Transactive memory (Sparrow)|
|Individual expertise||Ambient intelligence (Oblinger)|
|Digital ADD||Decision science (Begley)|
|Sports & entertainment heroes (models)||Culture shift toward science & technology (Kamen)|
|One-time interventions||Systems & systemic change (Clinton)|
|Expert-dictated design||Mass customized learning (Hodgins, Schwahn, McGarvey)|
|Pedantic approaches||Storytelling (Lithgow, Karet)|
|Teacher/student models||Mentoring (Myers)|
|Classroom/podium models||Spatial design, learning spaces (Fouchea, Vredevoogd)|
|Self-contained knowledge||Cloud learning (Casserly, van Dam, Jindrich, Beaudry, Prabju)|
Look at how learning development has changed (and think about how we’re approaching it vs. 50 years ago). How do we approach our clients, who may consider the ‘Cloud’ approach a fad? Or what do we say when she insists learners memorize key tasks that can easily be referred to in a job aid?
