John K first started using technology to support learning and development way back in the late 80's.
Back the height of tech was using Bulletin Boards on a Local Area Network. We laugh now, but then it was powerful stuff.
Since then he has a Doctorate in Leadership and Management Development, an MBA in Technology Management and is considered a World Leader in the use if Technology in L&D.
Now you can stream video across the planet as easily as writing a memo. But that doesn't mean that you should replace traditional methods with online video-based learning.
You can, for example, broadcast from your home to teach a seminar on the other side of the globe. It saves you travel time and the airfare, but that doesn't make it a good solution!
The Henley Business School Corporate Learning Survey in 2016 shows that:
So why are so many corporate adding more online only programmes in a bid to save money at the expense that learners will continue to dislike it as a method? 62% corporates plan to offer online learning.
Flipping the classroom goes beyond Blended Learning. When done well and right, the flipped classroom uses technology for what it is good for, supported by properly trained facilitators and coaches who Encourage, Develop, Guide, and Empower your learners.
Your learners are coached individually and in small groups in classrooms, experiential and/or across the interweb. They work in groups on safe and live projects together. They access and leverage technology to support each other and cascade their learning. Using online resources and co-creating an extension to your organisational knowledge.
Oh, and you still save on the travel and accommodation. But it isn't about just converting existing materials into a new format. It's a revolution in making L&D effective and generating a substantial ROI.
