Learning today is more about being able to find the right knowledge when you need it, than to have learned something at a course. But - one does not exclude the other. Courses can be necessary to verify and certify knowledge.
But, in order to be more efficient at work you need Performance Support - easily accessible knowledge while performing the daily tasks. Why is that?
to Dynamic Learning
A few decades ago, one could very likely use the knowledge one gained during the school years throughout the whole career. With the technological revolution we are in right now, this has changed. Those who graduate today may perhaps enter professions that do not yet exist. Because of this, knowledge becomes a process where it is equally important to be able to find and obtain the knowledge as the knowledge itself.
The Google effect
A survey by researchers at Harvard and Columbia University shows that when we know that information is available only from a search, we do not learn the details anymore, but teach us the ways to find the information. The unused memory capacity can instead be used for our creativity.
It’s easier for us to remember what phrase we typed to find the answer to solve a problem than to remember the solution itself.
Another study shows that we spend more than a third of an ordinary working day looking for information, and in 44% of cases we do not even find what we are looking for.
"Never memorize something that you can look up!"
The 70-20-10 model (created already in the 80s by Morgan McCall and the Center for Creative Leadership) tells us that we learn 70% of everything we can by doing. These can be work experiences that we get by repeating tasks and progressing in our daily work.
… of our knowledge is learned through courses or training, via so-called formal learning.
… of our knowledge comes from work experience that we get by sharing knowledge with each other and repeating tasks in our daily work.
…av vår kunskap kommer från arbetslivserfarenhet som vi lär oss genom att dela kunskap med varandra och upprepa uppgifter i vårt dagliga arbete.
