Building the confidence and motivation to learn
The nature of work is changing and those changes demand a culture of continuous development. But participation in lifelong learning is persistently low, especially in the UK. How can we change that?
Louise Rowland believes that learner confidence – particularly for those let down by mainstream education – can be boosted by the creative use of learning technology. The result: the stimulation of a love of lifelong learning and an increase in the UK skills base.
Drawing on the experiences of over 250 organisations, she will show how a digital approach can help improve learner confidence and motivation, exploring:
· Turning past negative learning experiences into positive ones
· Recognising learner motivation and linking it to learning
· Understanding where basic literacy and numeracy are barriers to progression
· Using user-centric design to challenge assumptions and stereotypes
· Providing scaffolding to help people with digital provision
