Can You Say Distractions? Do You Create Learning Distractions?

If Performance Isn’t Your Goal

Then any means are OK. You can play silly Serious Games – and worry about the Learners needing to learn things not related to their Performance Requirements. In an Enterprise Learning Context. Perhaps your learning context is different.

Can you say: Distractions?

Do you create Distractions?

Serious Games – are only Serious to me – if their focus is on learning what needs to be performed later.

Otherwise it’s simply Cognitive Overload – and a Major Distraction.

Focus On Performance

And enable that. Teach that. Have Learners Discover that.

And that will require an Analysis of the terminal Performance Competence Requirements – and the enabling Knowledge & Skills. And then design that focuses on that – and not the cool, hip Means to some other ends.

Or – why bother?
