-Spaced Learning
Teachers have reported amazing results when it came to spaced learning. Spaced Learning is a learning method in which the condensed learning content is repeated three times, with two 10- minute breaks during which activities such as panels and sharing ideas. Spaced learning involves encouraging students to quickly switch through activities. For example, providing ten minutes of capacity building with a PowerPoint presentation and then having 15 minute panel to discuss and see where they stand and make sure they understand and are engaged with the material presented. The key is in the brain cells. It helps them to create the connections that they need to actually remember the knowledge. Furthermore, it has the additional benefit of allowing people to relax. If they are compressing sections of the capacity training and life skills into such small sections then there’s no time to worry. It’s all about the learning before moving on to another session.
Under a new teaching method called “engagement” prospects are urged to engage with the real world, analyze everything that happens in different life spheres (not only internship but also economical, business, social spheres, etc.). Business studies are where this new focus of engagement is created. Instead of conventional training methods, the trainees were taken to visit local businesses where they were able to witness how the knowledge that they were learning applied to the real world. Multiple days were set aside for this practice and everyone was required to wear business suits in order to attend. The idea is to get them engaged and to connect their learning to the real world. This method allows their own brain cells to connect and associate them to the real world, sort of like a simulation.
3-Computer-Based Training (CBT)
Computer-based training is becoming increasingly prevalent as technology becomes more widespread and easy to use. Though traditional forms of training are not likely to be replaced completely by technological solutions, they will most likely be enhanced by them. Human interaction will always remain a key component of workplace training. Nonetheless, it is a good idea to look more closely at what training technologies have to offer and how they might be used to supplement existing training programs or used when developing new ones. Computer-based training formats vary from the simplest text-only programs to highly sophisticated multimedia programs to virtual reality
