101 Making Smart Decisions About Learning Technology

8:15 AM - 9:30 AM Wednesday, November 6

New tools and platforms present themselves almost daily. It’s hard to keep up with it all, especially with everything else on your plate. That doesn’t mean your organization shouldn’t take advantage of new technologies for learning. What is right for right now, and will it work for future needs? These decisions aren’t trivial; any technology implementation is an investment.

In this session, we’ll talk about how you can make data-driven decisions about learning technology for your organization. We’ll talk about what research shows works, what doesn’t, and what’s too early to tell. You’ll be introduced to some tools you can use to help make these decisions and practice with real-world examples. Bring your technology questions and problems to this session, and we’ll work through some of them.

In this session, you will:

  • Learn better ways to make informed decisions about learning technology
  • Examine the research
  • Explore various tools that can help you make data-driven decisions ahead of your next purchase
