And neuroscience continues to push the envelop in our understanding of how the brain and learning occurs, we have to make sure we acknowledge that it is ok to take a step back and consider the reality facing today's employees, students, schools and companies. How can we use brainwaves and science to better prepare our people to face the future.
As more people turn to online learning and web-based training, we know that the tools that have been developed ought to be improved to meet the needs of a modern populace. We should provide ample tools to remind people of upcoming lessons as well as triggers to ensure that they are continuing to stay engaged with the training. Brainwaves and neuro learning also push into into areas where humans have been traditionally weak in. Multi-tasking and trying to manage multiple projects or assignments. We know people think they can be really productive by doing many things at once but the brain science continues to show us how fraught with difficulty this way of thinking is. Try as we might, humans are notoriously weak when juggling multiple projects. We need project management software and tools to help make sense of the our need to keep track of our many endeavors. Certainly we are not the first generation in history to attempt this concept of multi-tasking or multiple engagements. From our internet surfing habits to our ancient ancestors trying to master multiple skills, we see that the true evidence of progress has been when we have had a singular focus on achieving specific tasks and objectives.
As with an scientific endeavor having brainwaves learning should consist of the most 5 common groups of brain waves that most people are likely to come across. For example brainwaves like Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta and Gamma can contribute to the smooth functioning of everyday lives activities. Advances in elearning and learning technology like scorm lms and tincan api continue to push the envelop in terms of what humans can be capable of each given the right motivations. We know that neuro plasticity has produced some amazing results for people who have undergone severe traumatic brain injuries. It is obviously important that each of the ranges of brain frequencies we have identified continue to be exhaustively researched and new ideas and technologies brought to bear to increase human cognition and ability.
