Welcome to TWIST Conversations, where we chat with members of the Guild Community exploring current trends in learning, performance, and technology.
In this episode of TWIST Conversations I chat with Julia Graham of DoubleDutch. In this live discussion, we explore a new type of mobile technology called iBeacons. We talk about what iBeacons are, how we’re testing iBeacons at this year’s mLearnCon, and some of the potential uses for iBeacons for learning and performance support.
Here are a few highlights from our conversation:
Most people look at iBeacons as being a physical piece of hardware … but it doesn’t have to be.
There’s a difference between understanding what a technology can technically do, and how the technology might be applied in a learning and performance context.
Beacons can support getting you what you need when you need it … and where you need it.
To learn more about how mobile technologies are changing the future of learning and performance support, join us at this year’s mLearn Conference and Expo, June 24 – 26 in San Diego.
If you have a speaker or topic that you would like to see featured in a future episode of TWIST Conversations, please let me know.
