5Learn Identity

 

5Learn Identity
 
Name Inspiration:

Learning as a concept is shaped by the perception of the learner himself. Every learner has a different motive to learn and has a different perception of what should be considered learning. 
Because 5Learn aims to fulfill the need of every striving learner, whether learning for career development or learning for ones own self-development 5Learn is what serves best. In 1979 Roger Saljo introduced a concept that matches the vision of 5Learn and on the basis of such a concept the name was chosen. 
 
Saljo’s research was able to categorize the perception of Learning into 5 categories:
 
1. Learning was perceived as the increase in the Quantity of knowledge acquired. 
 
2. Learning was perceived as the ability of the mind to store in memory pieces of information and reproduce them. 
 
3. Learning was perceived as the gain of new skills, methods and facts that can be utilized when needed. 
 
4. Learning was also perceived as making sense of the surroundings. Meaning the ability to relate different matters together and apply to the real world. 
 
5. Learning was perceived as the interpretation of conventional matters differently. Basically reinterpreting knowledge to create better understanding. 
 
 
Applied Theories
 
The theory introduced by Roger Saljo was an inspiration to the name 5Learn, also fortunately confirming the choice of name was the perfect coincident of having the letter “e” as the 5th letter of the alphabet, to conform to the fact that 5Learn is an eLearning firm. 

By book definition Learning is acquiring knowledge, or modifying existing knowledge, values, beliefs or preferences.  Learning is not a snapshot outcome, but instead it is happens gradually with incremental gains in knowledge. Psychologists overtime have explored learning as a vital function of the human brain. Through studies carried over years different theories of learning appeared and acquiring knowledge became a matter of deep scientific studies. Some of the learning theories include:
 
Bloom’s taxonomy of Learning
 
Bloom has a very popular intriguing theory that explains the multiple cumulative levels of learning as such; Knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and finally evaluation. 
 
Learning Domains
 
Psychologist explain that the process of learning takes place in three identified aspects such as:
 
Cognitive: this aspect is the most common aspect used to evaluate learning. This aspect depends mainly on the gain of knowledge during the learning process. Mainly concerned with the mental aspect of the human learning mechanism.  
Affective: this aspect of learning depends on the emotional part of human beings. The learner learns more about emotions and more human aspects. This aspect is focused more on the social skills and plays heavily on emotional matters. 
Psychomotor: this aspect of learning depends on the physical part of the learner. Learning within this aspect means practicing and training. Mainly concerned with actually implementing the learning material in-order to acquire it as solid knowledge.   
 
 
Learning Pyramid 
 
This theory explains the concept of knowledge retention, and the amount of knowledge retained by the learner using a combination of different learning material. The theory shows that when knowledge is received via a lecture only 5% of the material is retained, through reading 10% is retained, while using Audio-Visual aids 20% is retained, when shown a demonstration 30% should be retained, however when involved in a group discussion 50% is retained, even better when knowledge is put into practice 75% is retained and finally when immediately using the knowledge or teaching it to others 90% of the material learned will be retained.
