Learners are at the center of everything we do.
Every activity, design principle, and technology decision starts with thinking through how learners should benefit from the ideas and plans we generate.
Focus on verbs, not nouns
All of us learn by collaborating, analyzing, arguing, researching, listening, comparing, and reflecting – we usually don’t learn much if we start with operating systems, wireless routers, servers, video codecs, or any other tool. Learning Innovations helps clients articulate specific learning activities, then identifies the appropriate tools to bring those activities to life.
Identify the social benefits and barriers to collaboration before the technical benefits and barriers
Too often, too many of us jump in to using a new tool before thinking through the user experience or rationale. Learning Innovations helps clients create the social dynamics that support collaboration for innovative activities. Investing time understanding learners and their needs will guide better purchase decisions.
Create flexible learning environments that support face-to-face interactions
Rapid advances in information and communication technologies are creating exciting possibilities for learning, yet too often learners are stuck in buildings, rooms, and environments that restrict more than they empower. Learning Innovations works with clients to invest time, energy and resources in physical spaces that enhance face-to-face experiences.
