Almost everything we do has a story connected to learning. Whether we realise that we’re learning and striving to improve, or sometimes just human nature to learn from mistakes and do something better next time.
This means that stories about learning are far and wide and we’ll keep adding to these pages to bring you examples that we hope you’ll find interesting.
Academic Heritage – Learning and Education have a natural relationship, as that’s what Schools, Colleges and Universities do. So it is no surprise that the research into how we learn started as a University research study – you can read more here about the academic heritage behind Learning Power and how jearni developed the Learning Power Platform.
Building 21C Skills – Learning is important today and only set to become more important – but don’t just take our work for it. The World Economic Forum published their thoughts on the top 10 skills needed in the workforce in 2020 and there is very close alignment to these skills and the dimension of how we learn – you can read more here about the skills needed for the 21st Century and understand how the ability to learn and become a more effective learner are critical to help prepare the workforce of the future.
Keeping pace with change – As well as preparing the future workforce with the skills they need to succeed in the 21st Century, today’s workers are just as in need of embracing learning and becoming more effective learners as they battle to keep up with the relentless pace of change. Personal and organisational success requires adaptability, agility, and the ability to support continual change in all aspects of life – at work, at study, and at home.
Dimensions of Learning Power – As we begin to understand how we learn, we can start to unpack the elements behind what makes each individual’s approach to learning unique to them. You can read about the eight dimensions of learning here and how they combine to paint an easy to understand picture of how the system of learning works.
Example Learning Personas – To help bring to life how individuals learn, we’ve included some examples of different learning profiles to show that no one approach can work as we’re all diverse and have a different way of becoming more effective learners.
UN Sustainable Development Goals – When working to improve your Learning Power, having a purpose for your Learning journey is critical. The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including those related to poverty, inequality, climate, environmental degradation, prosperity, and peace and justice.
This is where the UN SDGs can be so powerful, especially in schools, as pre-canned content that can be used to drive real change.
