Part 1 What is learning & teaching?
So just what is training? 1. What is learning? 2. What is active learning? 3. What is teaching? 4. What is training? 5. What is facilitating?
Mini Quiz: Who’s who? Match the descriptions with the definitions? A. B. C. D. Someone explaining how to assemble a rifle. Someone preparing a class of O Level for their GCSEs. Someone preparing a group of athletes to run a race. Someone encouraging workers to find ways to increase their employability. E. Someone giving prepared lessons to a group of univ students. F. Someone helping a student to prepare for a test. Lecturer Tutor --------- Trainer Teacher ----- Instructor ----- Facilitator ---------
What is active learning? • Active learning is when learners are engaged in more activities than just listening. • They are involved in dialogue, debate, writing and problem solving, as well as higher-order thinking. Bonwell and Eison
From simple to complex • As you move from simple to complex tasks, two types of learning required: • Collaborative learning: carefully structured. Group formation and learner roles important • Cooperative learning: a form of collaborative learning that has five specific criteria to maximise learning
Cooperative learning Five key components: 1. Positive interdependence: each individual depends on and is accountable to the others 2. Individual accountability: each person in the group learns the materials 3. Promotive interaction: group members help one another, share information, clarify 4. Social skills: emphasis on interpersonal skills 5. Group processing: assessing how effectively they are working with one another
14 ways to acquire knowledge
Learning combination lock
Use combinations • Each trainee, child, adult, learner has a unique combination lock – the way they will learn. Use that! • This brings us to mass customisatisation!
Learner readiness • What is more important for a learner to learn new skills, knowledge and attitude in face-to-face, classroom setting? 1. Trainer expertise and effective delivery, or 2. Learner willingness and motivation
Learner readiness: SkillCity poll When the student is ready, the teacher arrives!

What is will & skill? • Will = desire, • Skill = ability, hunger, drive, competence, ambition, capability, willingness, your something you reason for being, are known for, mindset niche, skillset
Wali’s Will-Skill Matrix v1
To increase… • Will = find out • Skill = The P word what really excites • Practice. Practice. you (OCD), make it Practice. your life’s purpose • Gladwell: 10,000 • Also, find out hours of practice! what’s holding you back!

Gen Y’ers / Millennial kids
Millennial/Gen Y workforce
Gen Y learning preferences 1. Doing is more important than knowing 2. A need for immediacy 3. Trial and error approach to problem solving (PBL) 4. Low boredom threshold 5. Multitasking and parallel processing 6. Visual, nonlinear and virtual learning 7. Collaborative learning 8. Constructivist approach Source: Ashridge UK 2010
In summary… Gen Y’ers/Millennials: • Teachers, principals, bosses, parents do not matter much – knowledge is cheap! • Instead, peers influence their decisions! • Extremely low attention spans • Low boredom threshold • Parallel processing: texting/study/talking
The way Gen Y will work • Did you know? Social media version clip • Microsoft Future Vision clip

Part 3 How can we use this learning as an educator?
Research: what we retain…
Activities vs outcomes
Our action plan • Use variety of learning methods that are suitable to Gen Y • Use teacher behavior that is helpful, non-controlling • Use activities which help in longterm memory
Manage disruptive learners • How a Social Studies Grade 7 teacher develops projectorientation! • Pay It Forward clip
