Toolwire to exhibit at Learning Technologies show, 29 - 30 January 2013

Showcasing the practical and versatile application of Online Experiential Learning in real-life work environments

Pleasanton, CA and London, UK - Thursday, 17th January 2013 - Toolwire, a global leader in Experiential Learning* solutions, today announced it will be exhibiting at the Learning Technologies exhibition scheduled to take place 29 - 30 January 2013 at Olympia 2, London (stand 127).

Toolwire will be showcasing the practical application of Online Experiential Learning by delivering four sessions on key themes:

  • Helping professionals cope with sensitive and emotionally challenging situations

  • Learning by being: The importance of authentic storytelling

  • Using virtual experiences to accelerate change

  • Learning from mistakes to improve decision making and troubleshooting skills

Visitors at the Learning Technologies will have the opportunity to experience a range of 'real life' sample training courses for themselves. To coincide with the event, Toolwire will also be releasing a special report on Experiential Learning prepared by Towards Maturity.

Sarah Frame, EMEA Director at Toolwire, commented, "The adoption of Online Experiential Learning is on the increase in Europe because more L&D professionals are looking to improve workforce skills on a range of specific or complex skills which cannot be delivered through generic training courses.

E-Learning is not the same as Experiential Learning. Learning by doing remains a critical way for staff to pick up new skills - so being able to automate that process in a cost effective way without compromising quality is just as important. We are delighted to be exhibiting at the Learning Technologies show again and allowing visitors to experience what Toolwire Learnscapes can do for their organisation."

Notes to Editor

*What is Experiential Learning?
Experiential Learning is the process of learning new skills or acquiring critical knowledge by doing. Experiential Learning supports students by placing them in context of what is being taught. This is done through an immersive online environment which replicates 'real world' settings such as a court, hospital, or a call centre. The integration of theory, practice, and contextual reality gives relevance to the tasks which the learners are asked to perform and provides them with the opportunity to demonstrate their capability to use the knowledge gained. Experiential Learning can be applied in a corporate and academic situation.
