Have you heard about Learning Nuggets? Unfortunately, they are not edible, but they can definitely feed your head with knowledge and new skills 🙂 In the article you will learn what Learning Nuggets are, what they can be used for and in what form. We will also give you a brief overview of how Digital Latam uses the nuggets. What are learning nuggets? Learning nuggets are small units of knowledge that together are part of a larger educational content. They are interconnected as they are part of a single lesson. They are usually short (5 minutes approximately) and the goal is to develop a concept that leads to another, and so on. Some examples are: videos, short quizzes or audio files. How do we use learning nuggets in education and training? When it comes to teaching new content, it is much better to do it concept by concept, rather than offering a complete lesson at once, for two main reasons:
- As human beings cannot maintain their attention for a long time on the same subject (approximately 20 minutes), dividing a module into small parts helps to better assimilate what we are learning.
- It is easily adaptable to all devices, digital or not. This makes them always available and we can access them wherever and whenever we want.
