$500.00

Author: Todd Maddox, Ph.D.

Key Stakeholders: Chief Learning Officers, Chief Human Resource Officers, Learning and Development Directors and Managers, Corporate Trainers, Content and Learning Product Managers

Why It Matters: The workplace is changing rapidly and the modern employee needs continuous learning of hard skills, people (aka soft) skills and situational awareness. Neuroscience reveals that each of these skill sets is mediated by a distinct learning system in the brain, each of which has its own unique operating characteristics. The modern employee expects learning in the flow of work, available 24/7 on any device, with engaging content and experience. Thus, corporations need learning technology that engages the appropriate learning systems in the brain and that engages the modern employee to continually improve skills and behaviors.

Top Takeaway: Qstream’s mobile microlearning solution meets learning challenges by delivering content in a way that engages the cognitive skills learning system in the brain during hard skills training, the behavioral skills learning in the brain during people skills training, and the emotional skills learning system in the brain during situational awareness training. The user experience engages employees through scenario-based challenges which stimulate critical thinking, gives real- time feedback, explains answers, supports personalized coaching, and delivers learning in minutes per day.
