  • Der virtuelle Desktop.
  • Und viel zu tun …
  • Zum Beispiel zum Thema Projektmanagement.
  • Ein anregendes Seminar, das sie vor ein paar Wochen besucht haben.
  • Aber wirklich behalten haben Sie nicht mehr viel.
  • Der Kopf ist jeden Tag ohnehin schon voll genug …
  • Und Anrufen
  • Und dem nächsten Anruf …
  • Mikro-Lernschritte nutzen die kleinen Spielräume.
  • Zwischen SMS …
  • Und Anrufen
  • Und Anrufen
  • Und Anrufen
  • Und Anrufen
  • Jeder neue, frisch eingeprägte Inhalt versickert mit der beachtlichen Halbwertszeit von etwa 30 Minuten. Jeder neue, frisch eingeprägte Inhalt versickert mit der beachtlichen Halbwertszeit von etwa 30 Minuten. Diese schon von Hermann Ebbinghaus 1885 beschriebene Vergessenskurve wird dann glücklicherweise bald etwas flacher, doch bleibt im Durchschnitt tatsächlich nicht mehr als etwa ein Fünftel im Gedächtnis.

    45. 45. A multiple number of lessons and courses can be provided at the same time and users can select them by simply clicking on the course selection menu. Please be aware: it does not make much learning sense to mix subjects. The KP shows learning cards only from the last choice selected; it does not mix contents. The MicroLearning Academy approach: KP can offer a series of lessons and courses
    46. 46. MicroLearning - Academy Approach <ul><li>What is MicroLearning with the KnowledgePulse® ? </li></ul><ul><li>How does the KnowledgePulse® work for users? </li></ul>3. What are the unique learning principles of MicroLearning ?

    48. 48. MicroLearning using the KnowledgePulse® ® is aiming at: Everyone forgets anything after a very short time time memory Forgetting curve (Ebbinghaus) One time learnings have no effect in terms of knowledge retention. Single seminars or online sessions are wasted investments.
    49. 49. KnowledgePulse® increases memorisation and secures training investments … the repetitive “popping up” of lessons insure that material is transferred from short-term memory into long-term memory The learner sets the pace… ...KnowledgePulse® smartly determines the “what” “when” and “how many”! Leitner system based on flash-cards
    50. 50. KP: Learning by repetition leads to a sustained knowledge build up 1st Repetition 2nd Repetition time Repeat learning is the basis of all knowledge retention. KnowledgePulse® Secures training investments.
