Tata Interactive Systems to Host Knowledge Sharing Session on Mobile Learning
MUMBAI, India, April 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Tata Interactive Systems is a Pioneer and Global Leader in e-learning and Simulations. The Presentations are a Part of 'The Performance Improvement Conference', Toronto, Canada.
John Gibbs, instructional design manager at Tata Interactive Systems (TIS), will be hosting two round-table presentations on mobile learning at The Performance Improvement Conference 2012 in Toronto, Canada, on April 22nd and 23rd.
The session on 22nd of April titled 'Decision Scenarios for Mobile Support and Instruction' will help organizations choose mobile learning solutions based on their current infrastructure and performance improvement needs.
Mobile technologies, being popular but volatile, often do not have support and instructional solutions created in systematic ways. However, it is still possible to design well-reasoned solutions based on where the organization is today.
At the session, John Gibbs will examine one-minute support and learning scenarios based on need, legacy investments, and even impulse decisions in terms of appropriate technologies for the back end, the handheld devices themselves, and the supporting communication infrastructure.
The session on 23rd of April titled 'Adding Mobile Nuggets to the Main Course' will address the strategic role that short learning nuggets can play in an overall learning and performance support strategy.
Straddling the boundary between tool-based and instructional interventions, nuggets can play a key role in performance improvement. Nuggets have made targeted and ad-hoc delivery via mobile and traditional technology platforms possible.
Gibbs will explore need drivers for nuggets, push vs. pull delivery, required vs. discretionary and formal vs. informal use, content selection and organization schemas, and media formats. The discussion will help develop rationale to justify investing in nuggets as a strategic tool rather than an afterthought.
The Performance Improvement Conference is sponsored by the International Society for Performance Improvement (ISPI). Tata Interactive Systems' speaker, John Gibbs, is the president of the Atlanta chapter of ISPI.
Founded in 1962, ISPI is the leading international association dedicated to improving workplace productivity and performance. ISPI represents performance improvement professionals throughout the United States, Canada, and 40 other countries.
