Every day we receive hundreds of e-mails, tweets, mobile messages, television commercials go wherever we go we are in contact with numerous sources of information. For more information see Susan Sher. And the question I ask myself, is what do we do with all that numerous information. Recently Anu Saad sought to clarify these questions. Do you want to say that as we are continually exposed to information, we are constantly forming us and learning? My opinion is that no, the learning does not occur by the mere fact of being in contact with information and knowledge, is necessary to have an attitude and take action. It is true that we often tend to hold in our mind information through repetition, but thats not training, simply retention, it is very possible that that information be forgotten if we move away from the source that transmits it. Then, you mean this that are continually sailing and that do not learn anything? Both as not learn anything not, but forget more information that we see and read Yes. We need to get quality training: 1.
Be selective when choosing information. Everything on the Web is not valid and within the valid must be take into account the source of dissemination, the level that we have in certain topic (if we are novice, expert), if we are looking for articles, courses, videos 2. Not all information is free, but it is also true that not all the information has the same quality. So keep in mind that if you want to get a good training sometimes you will have to make some investment. But be careful here goes the same, to make investment for your training smart and learn the characteristics of the course, creators, people who have made it, satisfaction level, 3 achievements. For me the central element that must have a good training is the interaction and contact. It is true that before so much information we have become self-taught, but the fact that need to acquire meaningful learning being in contact with other people, who can help you to solve doubts, share experience therefore believe that courses that have any platform where students can interact (forums, chats, conference rooms), already have a 80% of results achieved and if to this we add quality information and well structured, we have the perfect training. It would be like when we were in class and work with our companions side by side, following the lessons of the master. What happens is that we now do so from home, we select on what topic we want to form us and there are many more peers with whom we share these experiences, as well as more varied (ages, countries, levels of knowledge) in short, in the information age the formation is possible, moreover, training is accurate if we do not remain obsolete, but remember not all training is valid and of quality. Quality training = good information + structure + interaction.
