THERE’S A NEW RHYTHM TO LEARNING
The way in which we work, and more importantly how we learn, has radically changed. The entry of the generation of digital natives into working contexts, the diffusion of technologies accessible from the consumer world and the need to intercept and respond quickly to emerging needs are felt within corporate organisations.
Challenges for the employees are never scarce: information overload is often fairly difficult to manage, attention dispersed and scenarios forevermore complex; the consequences risk being counterproductive both in terms of the quality of the employee’s working life, and on the company’s efficiency.
THE TRAINING CONTINUES
In this case, a continuously growing trend has presented itself within the past years in terms of lifelong learning. Constant learning is actually an intrinsic characteristic of every working context, but emerging necessities are those concerning continuous training and learning opportunities studied on new professional profiles and career prospects. The value and recognition of traditional skills is rapidly declining while the professional process, as they were known until recently, disappear and give way to flexible paths characterised by multi-directional movements. New employees expect organisations to be able to support rapid job adjustments, ensure access to new skills and above all keep motivation high over time.
HOW TO FIND THE WINNING COMBINATION
To keep up with all the changes taking place, the head of Learning & Development review their programmes which in the last decade have focused on the role of the physical or virtual classroom to make room for tailor made interventions and solutions taken from consumer logic. Development abandons formality and brings a range of digital tools to the table; blogs, social media, videos, podcasts, infographics. Picking up new skills becomes fast, concentrated, and usable in order to meet needs regardless of logistic constraints. New microlearning formats, configured in doses, focused on a specific topic and integrated on different media, are rapidly establishing themselves and becoming the most appropriate practice to guarantee the development of diversified skills.
MICROLEARNING: LEARNING IN THE BAG
Time is a resource which is becoming increasingly precious and reduced. Outside the working environment, we tend to consume in a fairly fragmented way, interacting through simplified and fast dynamics, in just-in-time conditions. From step by step videos to the apps that teach us a new language, all these concepts are supported on our devices that we use every day, from the smartphone to instant messaging systems. Similarly, the ability to learn and train in the form of microlearning is sure to go at the individual’s pace. The aim is to obtain maximum return with minimum use of time and resources, allowing us to include training in our daily agenda, without having to make any sacrifices.
TAMTAMY’S TAILOR MADE TRAINING
TamTamy enables the combination of traditional training with new technologies and formats that facilitate learning dynamics.
This training in doses, which can be part of a wider learning programme, responds to the needs of reduced time and the immediate need to apply knowledge. At the same time the involvement is stimulated by gamification dynamics and the quality of the contents and the proposed formats.
