As a trainer, one is always looking at ways to make “learning” fun while forgetting that much learning can take place while having fun.
I was watching “Her Majesty, Mrs Brown” recently on my lap-top. It is about Queen Victoria’s friendship with John Brown, soon after the death of her husband, Prince Albert.
While watching the movie, I ended up going online to read more about her reign, the prevailing political climate and her successors to the throne right down to Queen Elizabeth II. I am rarely tempted to look for a dictionary while reading a (physical) book.
It was an unintended lesson on British Monarchy while having fun.
Internet has indeed make learning much more pleasurable and accessible while reinforcing the ‘stickiness of learning’ while having fun!
