WHAT IS MICROLEARNING?
Il Microlearning (or micro-learning) is a method of acquiring knowledge, usually on very specific topics, which guarantees maximum understanding effectiveness.
Il Microlearning it includes short educational programs divided into units of 2-5 minutes, often accompanied by social and informal learning, classroom courses and training with the teacher.
It allows users quick access to information, anytime, anywhere, and provides short, concise content.
Each course is a learning "pill" that treats the topic addressed in a very essential way: on the one hand, teaching, through the new languages (multimedia, interactive and multisensory), proves to be clearer and more simple, interesting and engaging.
Without forgetting that "classical" training is in some specific cases essential, it is the opinion of many experts in the sector that, during a frontal lesson or a conference, people are able to follow a lesson with concentration only for the first eight minutes, and that most of the information and concepts are easily forgotten after a month, if the subject is not taken up in some way.
Il micro-learning wants to offer itself both as a response to the needs of those who have little time to devote to training, as a tool for deepening specific concepts, and as a response to the decline in the level of attention of the learner.
It can be extremely useful for a multitasking audience, who are able to choose how and when to access the content they need.
