Exponential Training is excited to announce the launch of a new Erasmus+ project called ‘IDEAL’ or to give it its full name ‘Inclusion of Digital Education in Adult Learning’. As experts in on-line learning and assessment, Exponential Training is always researching ways to improve our training courses.
What is IDEAL?
In today’s global, digital world where the so called ‘millennials’ have grown up with technology, it is essential that teachers, trainers and coaches embrace the technology and new techniques. The IDEAL project, funded by Erasmus+ aims to help teachers, trainers and coaches engaged in adult education and training to exploit the use of digital education and training tools.
As a trainer and coach for over thirty years, John Moore, Managing Director, Exponential Training, has been surrounded by advances in digital technology, almost to the point where he cannot do his work as a trainer, assessor and coach without it. At Exponential Training, we use digital learning, communication and assessment tools such as Teammate360, GoToMeeting, LearnDash to deliver training courses, webinars and Chartered Management Institute qualifications
Today, technology is advancing at such a rate that traditional ways of teaching and learning are not pushing students and teachers to their full potential. The effective use of digital learning and assessment tools opens so many new opportunities to innovate and to inspire high impact learning and performance.
The next generation of learners will meet and surpass today’s millennial’s expectations of educational and training standards. The IDEAL trainer will need to not only be digitally competent, but also a digital learner themselves.
Tomorrow’s teachers, trainers and coaches will need to embrace and feel confident in using on-line learning platforms, assessment tools and techniques that operate in real time. Learners will demand enjoyable, engaging and learning experiences that add value and can be completed anywhere, anytime in minutes and hours and rather than days, weeks and months.
The IDEAL project is a great place to start your own training to become an IDEAL trainer. You will have access to a toolkit of resources to ‘kick start’ your journey to becoming an IDEAL trainer.
