Webinar Description: New technology is coming at an ever-increasing rate. It’s not just about exposing learners to new tools but using the best technology available to help them learn. With the advancements made, instructors can provide their students with the tools that will broaden their understanding and create a more tech-savvy learning environment. Technology can encompass all kinds of tools including tablets/mobile devices, online collaboration and conferencing tools, and more. The newest technologies allow us to try things in physical and virtual classrooms that were not possible before.
Forty-eight percent of organizations surveyed by the Brandon Hall Group placed the exploration of new learning technologies as their top Learning and Development priority for the next 12 months. Organizations that want to succeed will have to keep themselves abreast with technologies and will have to ensure that their employees' skills are up-to-date and aligned with new realities.
But how do you know what works the best when? How have companies integrated or embraced technologies to enhance learning? How can you connect and engage your learners wherever, and whenever they’re learning?
