'LEARNING IS DIFFICULT' IS THE FOUNDATION ON WHICH WE (SHOULD) ARCHITECT LEARNING EXPERIENCES!

Students

The minute we accept this premise, we’ll weed ourselves from the temptation to just ‘present’ the content. We’ll ‘realize’ that learning doesn’t happen as easily as that.

It doesn’t, of course, mean we punish learners by making their mission unrealistically difficult to accomplish. Instead, we work on the ‘zone of proximal development’ (ZPD). Which means we present them a reasonable CHALLENGE through a compelling CONTEXT. This, in turn, MOTIVATES them to USE their brain in figuring out possible solutions to the challenges posed.

The purpose of the whole exercise is NOT for them to work towards successfully completing the test… but to RETAIN the knowledge earned through the learning experience… and translate it into better performance levels at the workplace.

Such thoughtfully crafted learning solutions make for MEANINGFUL and MEMORABLE learning experiences for our learners.
