Let me be honest, I am biased. I hate smartphones in the training room.
If I deliver a learning event, I am trying to create a space where learning can happen safely. It’s social, it’s inclusive, it’s active, it’s fun, it is – I hope – challenging and valuable (I hope so, because it’s costly!) … and this requires a level of participation and engagement from the learners, and – because we’re people in the same space – a level of courtesy … but then I’m not one of the Millennial types, so what do I know.
Paul Levy argues that today’s youngsters have (or may have) a new skill set and that all the assumptions I packed into the above paragraph may be wrong. He says we should be open to the idea of embracing smartphones in the learning space and using them to enhance and share the learning.
I’m not convinced … what do you think?
