The Omnipresence Of Learning

Omnipresence Of Learning
The Aura Of Learning: Technology

Aura Of Technology
 
Over the years we have accepted and moved beyond the old concept that learning is best delivered and 'learned' formally. The advent of technology accelerated this and brought in new mediums and opportunities for the delivery of learning. Find out what they are and how we can harness these forms of learning. Following the previous article (to your left) on Pervasive Learning - 'The Omnipresence Of Learning', we now examine 'pervasive technology' and it's conscious and unconscious effect on learning...and look for ways to use the incredibly powerful 'aura' of knowledge within which we live and work.
 
 
What Did You Learn Today?

Omnipresence Of Learning
It's an innocuous and seemingly simple question - yet in reality it is one of the hardest to answer. You might probably find it easier to list the things you set out to learn, but what about all those other bits and pieces of information we assimilate throughout the day but don't label it as learning. The kind of knowledge & information that we don't always categorise as 'conscious learning' but pops in our head when we need it, How? Why?

Is Adobe EDGE Animate Ready For eLearning?

Aura Of Technology
As more and more eLearning development moves towards HTML, many of us can't escape that niggling wish for the richness and smoothness of Flash output.

Why Tablets Are
A Great Starting Point In Your mLearning Journey
 
We're passionate about mobile and tablet learning - as you would have noticed from several articles if you read our blog. We have been deeply intrigued by the slow uptake of mobile learning in spite of the huge potential it presents. In some of our articles, we've noted that while the potential is easy for all to see, the path to implementation is not bereft of challenges. That's why we continue to feel that tablets are a great first step towards mLearning. Here is a short animated video on why tablets are a great starting point in your mLearning journey. Check it out!
