From Information to Wisdom by Bob Griffiths
The Internet has already made a massive difference in how we learn and will continue to affect how we will learn in the future. But the progress we have made so far is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of what is possible. The question now is ‘How can technology help us move beyond information transfer into building real knowledge and skills’. Individuals and organisations possess a vast amount of knowledge about how to build knowledge and skills but so far relatively little of that information has been build into programmes and made available online.
In the session we will examine how this sort of knowledge and skill can be made available to individuals and teams through platforms such as CoachMaster™ software.
CoachMaster™ provides an online means of testing knowledge, developing skills and building reflection practise.
We will examine the different types of knowledge available and look at how they can be made available to a mass audience. Please bring your creativity and sense of possibility and we will co create some new ideas for this technology.
