The Traditional Training vs the Bite Size Approach Infographic explains why micro-learning is the ideal training solution for employees’ shrinking attention spans! We need a new way to solve for society’s shift towards hyper attention and micro-learning is the answer. Small, bite-size lessons solve for dwindling attention spans, while serving learners and trainers better than traditional training in a variety of ways.

Bite size is the right size!

We’re moving from a culture of deep attention to hyper attention.

Deep Attention

Able to concentrate on one object or information stream for long periods of time, ignoring outside stimulation.

Hyper Attention

Switches focus between multiple information streams, a preference for high stimulation and lower tolerance for boredom.

Attention Spans Are Shrinking:

  • 2000 attention span 12 seconds
  • 2013 attention span 8 seconds
  • goldfish attention span 9 seconds

Technology Is Advancing

As a result of rapidly changing technology, a digital skills gap has emerged. This gap requires expeditious alignment of training to skills.

Training Can’t Keep Up

This technological change has also led to a skills half-life of 2.5 years. Because training hasn’t kept pace, workers are falling further and further behind, putting a strain on our workforce:

Micro-learning beats traditional training in a variety of ways:

  • Micro-learning in 3-7 minute chunks matches the brain’s working memory and attention span.
  • Bite size microlearning yields an average of 4-5 learned items taken from a series.
  • Micro-learning can cut development costs by 50% while increasing the speed of development by 300%.
  • Over 1.2 billion learners have access to smart devices and expect to use them.
