Martyn Sloman has long been one of those people you call on when you want the straight story on an aspect of learning and technology. He knows the value of technology, but he also knows its place. Place is an important idea for Martyn, as he explained to Kineo’s Stephen Walsh in Kineo’s most recent podcast interview, available at the Kineo site: “The modern economy puts far more emphasis on the individual, and on individual learning, than on top down learning…we were interested in finding whether this was an international phenomenon. We think there’s a global model emerging, based on a derived demand…at its crudest the issues of delivery of public services in Dublin are not that different from those in Shanghai. What’s different is that you have different learners with different dispositions.”

Sloman believes that culture is a dangerous word in learning. “It’s not enough to say that learning in China will be different because the culture is different – we have to go further than that”. He went on to make the point that research scientists working for Pfizer in Japan could share more ‘cultural similarities’ in terms of what’s expected in learning and knowledge management with their Pfizer colleagues in the US than they do with others in Japan. This throws into question the idea of national identity and culture as a driver for learning: “I think there’s a real danger in saying that our approach to learning and development is related to our national identity”, Sloman argues.

So what role does e-learning play in enabling individuals, regardless of their national identity? Walsh and Sloman went on to discuss what individual motivation can mean in e-learning. His message was clear: don’t believe the hype. “E-learning has spent too long at the hype phase – we need to get beyond that and look to best practice, what’s actually working to explore what’s really possibly in personalisation and customisation”, he stated. While Sloman believes that the benefit of performance support has still to be proven, there’s no doubt that the individual is in more control of their future learning than ever – and has better support through technology than any previous generation. Just don’t expect it to be too different from one place to the next…

Martyn Sloman’s book, The Changing World of the Trainer, picks up on many of these points and will be available in March 2007.
