Jody Baty writes: “The first thing worth understanding about training is that classroom-style learning simply does not work very well. The fact of the matter is that anyone in a classroom style learning environment forgets 75% of what they’ve learned after just 2 days.” Learning mostly takes place “by trial and error”.
Baty asks: “The trick is how to get the right support at the right time?” According to Baty the aswer is adding context. “And that’s where iBeacons come in. They’re all about providing context. … iBeacons have the potential to provide contextualized learning based on a user’s proximity.”
