The Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach Infographic explains why Microlearning is the ideal training solution for employees’ shrinking attention spans! We need a new way to solve for society’s shift towards hyper attention and Microlearning is the answer. Small, bite-size lessons solve for dwindling attention spans, while serving learners and trainers better than traditional training in a variety of ways.
In the Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach Infographic you’ll learn:
- How we’re moving into a culture of ‘hyper’ attention and what that looks like.
- How rapidly changing technology is affecting individual workers, businesses, and driving a $1.3 trillion loss to the economy.
- How Microlearning is changing the face of training with a 300% increase in speed of production while costing trainers 50% less.
Bite size is the right size!
We’re moving from a culture of deep attention to hyper attention.
Able to concentrate on one object or information stream for long periods of time, ignoring outside stimulation.
Switches focus between multiple information streams, a preference for high stimulation and lower tolerance for boredom.
Attention Spans Are Shrinking:
- 2000 attention span 12 seconds
- 2013 attention span 8 seconds
- goldfish attention span 9 seconds
Technology Is Advancing
As a result of rapidly changing technology, a digital skills gap has emerged — one that is costing the U.S. economy OVER 1.3 TRILLION DOLLARS annually in lost productivity.
Training Can’t Keep Up
This technological change has also led to a skills half-life of 2.5 years. Because training hasn’t kept pace, workers are falling further and further behind, putting a strain on our workforce:
- 1/3 of workers clock over 50 hours per week.
- 43% get less than seven hours of sleep per night.
- 25% of execs report their communications are unmanageable.
- 40% say they don’t have time to do the training they need.
Therefore, traditional training doesn’t work.
Microlearning beats traditional training in a variety of ways:
- Microlearning in 3-7 minute chunks matches the brain’s working memory and attention span.
- Bite size microlearning yields an average of 4-5 learned items taken from a series.
- Microlearning can cut development costs by 50% while increasing the speed of development by 300%.
- Over 1.2 billion learners have access to smart devices and expect to use them.
