Welcome to the Speexx Exchange podcast about The Promise & Pitfalls of Learning Technologies! Your host, Donald Taylor, Chairman of the Learning and Performance Institute – and renowned L&D expert – talks to Kinga Petrovai – an educational specialist working at the intersection of research and practice – about how people learn, and the role of learning technologies in various strategies. Kinga points out precisely where the adoption of technology very often stumbles and warns that a lack of technical understanding, coupled with overenthusiasm, can hinder learning, as this might stall an instructor or coach’s adoption of said technology. They also discuss what “learning science” really is, and how people often mistake a platform (like TV or radio) versus actual content as that which will revolutionize learning.
