Digital Learning

THE EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATOR SERIES

Unique structure and fresh content integrated to digitally-facilitate the use of English Language quickly, confidently and effectively

Whether done online or not, training mostly is just listening.  Does the application of learning’ really happen? Generally when lectures end, we take a quiz, collect a certificate and go on our merry way. 

But now, with our innovative facilitated-learning platform the experience is more participative for enhanced learning and instructionally-designed for impact in the real-world.

English Education Today

Written and spoken English are completely different languages

Out-dated Content

Onerous, random, irrelevant details with no integration or connection

Ineffective Rote Method

Grammar focused, little to no authentic listening or speaking practice

No Accountability

Minimal impact on learner ability or autonomy

LEARNING CIRCLES – A PROVEN APPROACH

Leveraging and digitalizing a successful education model

Scandinavian Education System – A Success Story

Changing Communities. The Study Circle – For Learning and Democracy

“Study circles more or less passed away in USA, they have ever since flourished in Sweden and Scandinavia. Still, nearly three million Swedes participate in more than 300,000 study circles annually…“

The ability to write and speak the language with sufficient structural accuracy and vocabulary to participate smoothly and effectively in most formal and informal interactions on practical, social, and professional topics.

HOW DO WE DO IT

Facilitated-learning is based on the premise that the more responsibility a learner takes for his/her own learning, the more effective the training
Real-world LSRW Integration

Communication skills cannot simply be taught, they must be practiced

Structured and Active Participation

Maximizing online learning sessions

Performance is Measurable

Real-time data, analytics aggregated across implementations

Facilitated learning empower participants to take control of their learning process.

Participants learn with and from each other as they identify and implement solutions to a wide range of issues. They come to appreciate the value of their own ideas and the contribution that they are.

FEEDBACK AND TESTIMONIALS

The Effective Communicator facilitated at Schools and Enterprises

The Effective Communicator is well-written and planned, especially the practical guidance. In fact, I benefited a lot from the live discussions. The guidance pointed out several things that I will remember for years to come. I look forward to participating in the next program. Thank you.

Rukmini – Pre School Teacher

Digital online creates a more effective learning environment because it allows more time to digest information. The combination of structure and freedom, effective time management, expanded world view, discussions with classmates and immediate feedback are some of the benefits.

Rakesh – Primary School Teacher

Learning on my own before the live sessions made me more accountable. This was important because it developed my skills, creativity and intellectual curiosity. Independent learning is about being active rather than passive. It is about working out the answers rather than being told.

Mangala – Secondary School Teacher

Everyone had the chance to speak out his/her opinions. We not only learned from the material but also each other.

I personally learnt about self-exploration, gaining knowledge, building confidence and expanding my skill set.

Getting communication skills upgraded is the need of the hour. I believe that practical learning is essential as it allows us to think past the theories which are taught in a traditional manner.

Honestly, it was quite a different course than I ever attended before. I feel it was very interesting and it inspired my confidence to express my ideas in English during conference calls.

I got pronunciation more than previous courses. I gained speaking accuracy for my future learning and work.

In English, I can talk to co-workers from Taiwan and Japan who I never talked to before.
