Modern Magic: Embed Learning into Practice

Clark Quinn, Ph.D.
Executive Director

Dr. Clark Quinn integrates
creativity, cognitive science, and
technology to develop learning
and performance strategies
for business, education, and
government. He has led the
design of award-winning
online content, educational
computer games, and websites
as well as adaptive, mobile,
and performance support
systems. Dr. Quinn has served
as an executive in online and
eLearning initiatives and has an
international reputation as a
speaker and scholar, with three
books and numerous articles
and chapters to his credit.

I

like to ask, ‘What would you do if you had magic?’ Arthur
C. Clarke famously said, “any truly advanced technology is
indistinguishable from magic,” and we’re there. Our technology
is no longer the barrier. The limits are now between our
ears, and we can and should do two things: Enable effective learning
experiences that deeply embed practice, and support individuals wherever
and whenever they are. Two situations illustrate this concept, both of which
are with the Association of Children’s Welfare Agencies in Australia: Kids
who are released without having learned to live independently, and kids
who travel from care situation to care situation. In the former case, we built
an online game that allows kids to explore how to survive independently
in safe practice. In the other, we prototyped a digital version of an existing
LifeStory book that kids could use to engage interactions and record their
experiences in a nonjudgmental way to share with new care providers. The
principle is to use technology to augment the goals we’re trying to achieve
and bring in new capabilities that weren’t previously possible.

Key Lessons
1

Enable effective learning
experiences that deeply
embed practice.

2

Support individuals
wherever and whenever
they are.

3

Use technology to augment
goals and bring in new
capabilities that weren’t
previously possible.

“We can and should do two things: Enable
effective learning experiences that deeply embed
practice, and support individuals wherever and
whenever they are.”
