This year we’ve seen more challenges and changes than ever before. We have been forced to transform the way we work, learn and behave. Most of us are working remotely full-time and many are simultaneously helping their kids with the new home-schooling model. The need for essential digital skills has never been more apparent as the world attempts to grasp this ‘new normal’.
The world today has evolved from a knowledge worker era to the age of the learning worker. In our rapidly evolving digital environment, learning agility is the most value asset as people are having to navigate unknown challenges, in unprecedented situations, using undiscovered skills. This new dynamic will require a new type of worker - the Learning Worker.
The Asia Pacific region is touted as the second largest education technology industry in the world, with market value expected to reach $5 trillion by 2020. Countries such as India, China and Japan are seeing a tremendous growth in the education sector and start introducing technology in classrooms. AI is one of the key technologies that can make digital experience truly intelligent. To achieve this, information needs to be accumulated from multiple sources into AI based algorithms that can learn, evolve, and provide the most comprehensive experience to the users. We call these the Neural Networks and they enable deep learning in machines.
Much like machine learning technologies, individual self-learning has become imperative for professionals and organizations alike to achieve success. In order to not only survive but thrive, the digital society must also be an active learning society. Organizations and individuals both need to be connected to the ‘Neural Networks of Learning’ to stay relevant, updated and adapt a continuous learning mentality.
So, what exactly is the Neural Network of Learning?
In simple terms, the ‘Neural Network of Learning’ is an ecosystem of different approaches to learning that helps people create new neural pathways in the brain. These will work to enhance retention, learning, unlearning and relearning.
This learning approach enables all workers to develop new skills. With organizations now being forced to reevaluate their business models, the ability to adapt — whether that’s learning new skills, new technologies, or new ways of working – and maintain an ‘always on’ approach to learning is essential to defining what’s next.
Here are 5 best practices to leverage the Neural Networks of Learning:
The sooner organizations adopt best practices of learning approaches, the faster they will be able to succeed in this rapidly changing and complex world. Oracle Learning Cloud (a part of Oracle Cloud HCM) is the only system of its kind that allows an organization to seamlessly integrate all components of an effective learning ecosystem and create the most comprehensive and agile Neural Network of Learning.
