SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Cerego, a leader in adaptive learning technology, today announced the findings from the first edition of its “This Is How We Learn” report. The report, which analyzed close to 1 billion learning interactions from more than 1.5 million Cerego learners, provides a detailed look at the current state of learning. Through in-depth analysis of learning behaviors and effective teaching methods, the report reveals key insights around how we learn, debunks prominent learning myths, and provides a roadmap for improving long-term retention of knowledge.
Learning has become a social and economic imperative, just as relevant in the workplace as it is in the classroom. Though access to educational resources has improved dramatically in recent years, bad study habits and entrenched learning myths still hold learners back from mastering subjects and realizing their potential. As technology continues to alter the way we work, educate, and live, it is more important than ever to invest in effective learning practices that can unlock the promise of successful education and training. Corporations will need to harness technology, along with effective learning strategies, to successfully upskill and reskill employees in the age of digital transformation.
“Learning is a fundamental practice that underpins everything we do as humans. Unfortunately, we’re not set-up to succeed at learning effectively,” said Paul Mumma, CEO of Cerego. “In publishing this report, we hope to illuminate some of the knowns and unknowns of learning and help correct the misconceptions that hold people back from reaching their full potential, whether that be at work, school, or in their own career development.”
