Training in the Age of Google (Kyle Hopson)


Only members have access to resources.

Google has changed the way we think as a society. It is no longer just a popular search engine. It has become a verb. A household name. A trusted source of anything and everything you could want to know in a matter of seconds. It has even become a personality you can interact with (“Hey Google”). What does this mean for us as professionals seeking to educate and inform the eager minds of the coming generations? This the question I plan to tackle in my presentation.


After the session, you will be able to:
• Describe the concepts of Transactive Memory
• Explain the role of on-demand learning
• Use collaborative problem solving (crowdsourcing)
• Apply Knowledge Management principles to learning solutions
