406 Measure the Unmeasurable: How Mobile Can Transform the 70 of the 70:20:10

4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Wednesday, June 8



The 70:20:10 model holds that 70 percent of learning happens informally on the job. However, there are a lot of distractions at work that inhibit the amount of learning that can be achieved—deadlines, coworker interruptions, meetings, etc. Also, since learning is an afterthought when performing your job, it’s a fairly inefficient process, especially when compared to the other 30 percent, where learning is typically the overarching theme.

In this session, you’ll explore ways mobile technologies can be used to squeeze the best and most efficient learning process out of your normal, day-to-day work. Workers typically have a mobile device on them while performing a job—no matter if that job is computer-based, communication-focused, or manual labor—and this session will explore creative opportunities for mobile to revolutionize the 70 percent in the 70:20:10 model. All mobile technologies will be considered.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How to improve the 70 percent of learning that occurs on the job
  • How mobile can be used to increase the amount and efficiency of informal learning that occurs on the job
  • How wearables are underrated in learning
  • Creative ways phones can be used to document learning that occurs during your day-to-day work

Novice designers, developers, project managers, and directors.

Technology discussed in this session:
All mobile technologies—phones, wearables, etc.—will be discussed.
